What the Font?!

Friday, February 1st, 2008 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

What the Font?!

Have you ever run across an image with a font you really liked, but didn’t know what it was? Well, never fear! Now, you can identify those mystery fonts with ease on this Web site. Oh yeah!

How does it work? Well, it’s quite simple! You just click the Choose button and then find the image with the font you like wherever you saved it on your computer. Or, you can put in the URL of the image with the font and then click Upload Image. The site will then try to match the font with the best of its ability. For more tips on submitting your font for a match, make sure you check out the usage guide.

What happens next is the application tries to identify characters in the image you submitted. So, you’ll see your image repeated many times down the page with a box next to it. In the box, there will be a character the application thinks it found in the image. You need to make sure each character is correct. If they aren’t put in a correct character, go ahead and click the Search button.

Now, it will load up which fonts it thinks matches and you can then scroll down the page and compare your image to the fonts they have selected.

If it can’t match the font, don’t despair! Help is still there waiting for you in the What the Font Forum. Just click the Consult an Expert link at the bottom of the page and you’ll be taken to the log in page. It’s really easy to sign up. Just fill out the form and click the Create Account button. Then just submit your query to the forum members. The people on there are really good at figuring out which font is in your image. You’ll see the most recent posts to the font forum right on the front page and you can also click Next to look through all the entries.

This site is a real haven for font junkies like me. Check it out today!
