Cartouche Maker is a program designed for use in the windows environment and is compatible with windows 95,98, 98SE, ME, NT and XP. Cartouche Maker was developed using Visual Basic 6 and therefore needs the VB run time to work. All graphics were created using Ulead's Photo Impact 6. This help file was created using Help Scribble.
I have always had an interest in Egyptology and Cartouche Maker is just an expression of that interest. It just seemed a neat idea. A little bit of searching found some online cartouche creators but they were all very bland and boring so Cartouche Maker was created.
There is no real way to have our western alphabet translated into hieroglyphs on a letter by letter basis. The Egyptians did not spell words like we do, they spelt them phonetically. So take Cartouche Maker as it is intended to be , just as a bit of harmless fun and not a serious translation program
Why is Cartouche Maker v1.0 freeware? I decided that this program was made to be of use to anybody like me who needed it. I hate pulling down a program from the net after whetting my appetite with a lovely description just to find out that it is disabled or has nag screens. Apart from that if this software is free then more people will use it.
