How to Identify a Font from a Picture

There are many ways to identify a front from a picture. The first thing I would try is go to the professionals.

There are online font matcherators that are computer software created just to match font. Here are a few that I tried in the video.

All you do to use either of those free sites is upload a picture you took of the font you like. I have a tool that I use in Chrome called Microsoft Snipping Tool. Google it and download the free program. I pin it to the bottom of my dashboard so it’s easy to use.

I take a snip of the fonts I want to identify, save them on my desktop and then I can use that to find out what the font name is and where to find it.

Another Way to Know How to Identify a Font

I also use a free font site called Dafont. I go to it, choose a style of font and then I actually put in the text that I want to copy. This way I can find exactly what I am looking for easily FREE.

But the good thing about spending time finding a font in DaFont is they are FREE. I love free!

How To Identify a Font Using a Facebook Group

Sometimes you just can’t find what you are looking for, so using a Facebook group that specializes in this field might be the answer. Try these groups:

  • What Font Is This? This group is run by the team behind FontBundles. They love to help you identify a font .
  • What FONT is this? Another huge group full of font lovers waiting to help you identify a font.

I know…two groups with the same name. How confusing. Just type in the name and you will see both groups.
