There is a .psd layout & it has different text types in .png. How to recognize which font types used in it? myfonts.com does not help. Any help is appreciated! Add photo with fonts, what are they? image

  • Hi there and welcome to GD! We have a collection of font identification resources for you to try. If you can separate out the text with a background as neurtra as possible, that would help you a lot. Should all this fail, you could post an image here, and maybe get some help. graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/tags/font-identification/info – benteh Aug 30 '14 at 10:03
  • @Benteh, thanks a lot! But unfortunately these sources didn't help me, so I added a photo with unknown fonts and underline them. – k1r8r0wn Aug 31 '14 at 2:24
  • You can ask the designer who supplied you this, to send an editable file.. – Jack Sep 1 '14 at 9:28
  • To save a bit of time: "Lucid Theme" is American Typewriter; "Tags"/"Categories" is Helvetica. The other highlighted text is probably Open Sans. When posting images of typefaces for identification, make them as large as possible so that the little things which help can actually be seen. – Andrew Leach Sep 1 '14 at 14:28
  • @Jack This layout was taken from site and sent to me by the customer, so I'm not familiar with its creator. – k1r8r0wn Sep 2 '14 at 1:56

You can take a screenshot or export an image of a word and upload it to whatthefont.com - This should help you choose a font that closely matches your image. There's still a chance however that you wont have the font on your computer.

See screenshot below

  • Thanks, but I already tried this option, but has not achieved the desired result. – k1r8r0wn Sep 2 '14 at 2:00
  • @kirbrown Here is the link of the title text found on myfonts.com ('what the font' section) as seen here: [myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/… The best choice is to get the original photoshop file if you can. – Eddie Adolf Sep 2 '14 at 20:29
  • Error Your search session has expired. Please start again. [jobmanager.cc:100] - Whats a pity, anyway - thanks for watching! – k1r8r0wn Sep 3 '14 at 22:40
  • See edited reply. As @AndrewLeach commentated above with all the correct fonts - this post was just letting you know a tool to help you find fonts in the future. – Eddie Adolf Sep 4 '14 at 13:47
  • Finally it worked, thanks, but not with all fonts, which I tried. – k1r8r0wn Sep 5 '14 at 15:47
