    You need a font software. FontLab is very useful for that purpose.

    you cant convert eps to font file format directly bcuz eps ISNT a font file format! open it with adobe illustrator or the like and copy each individual letter/glyph into fontlab studio in the proper address (ie. letter A in letter A box (0041 code)). then you gotta do the hard part which is kerning each letter. thats a real bitch and could take ages. anyway in the end just save and generate the file as TTF or OTF and then install it to use it.

    ps. post ur eps file so i can see what i can do about it. cheers

    Yeah, you may have to do kerning for each letter. Or you just could take the kerning from some other font. But it takes a lot of effort, that much is true.

    No, you can't.
    Original file to "convert" in a font must be a vector, not an image (in pixel).
    If you have an image very large and in very high resolution you can try to convert the image in vector. But it's a suicide. My advice is: DON'T LOOSE YOUR TIME.
    Good luck

    I used Fontographer years ago to make grunge fonts (when they were in style). It's a tedious process but well worth it if you want to use something over and over and it doesn't already exist

    Glyphs for mac could do it too... it's a great app for font designers... it can export otf and ttf files.

    Now just to try this out. I have some files that I've just used to spell out what I've wanted. But for a lot of use a font is necessary.
