Designers are often faced with the task of identifying the font of text in a printed or a digital image. This can be a very time consuming and error prone task especially when the designer’s computer contains a few hundreds or thousands of fonts.
‘Find my Font’ is an easy to use software application that runs on your computer and identifies the fonts of a given bitmap image. It searches both our online font database and the fonts on your computer and compares them against the letters of your digital image.
You are provided with a list of matching (and similar) fonts along with the matching accuracy for each one. You may also type text and see how well the matching went (font preview).
It’s ideal for graphic designers and creative professionals who would otherwise spend hours trying to find a matching font.
‘Find my Font’ has been designed to make your life easier. It will help you identify a font in seconds and will do it easily and intuitively.
No difficult program to master, no complex parameters, no hidden features. Every functionality is easy to understand and works as expected.
‘Find my Font’ was developed with the graphic designer in mind who doesn’t want to spend hours (or even minutes) looking for a matching font.
Also ideal for signmakers, desktop publishers, font developers, vector creation artists etc.
‘Find my Font’ will identify fonts from two sources at the same time. From a huge online database and from your computer. The online server will report in a few seconds the matching fonts and similar ones. At the same time the program will look on your computer for matching fonts. The fonts can either be installed on your computer or they can be stored in one or more folders on your computer or network.
You can setup FontSets to instruct ‘Find my Font’ to look at specific places on your computer. FontSets may be indexed in order to speed up the matching process.
