Ever wanted to find a font just like the one used by certain publications, corporations, or ad campaigns? Well now you can, using the WhatTheFont font recognition system from My Fonts. Upload a scanned image of the font and instantly find the closest matches. For example, if you want to know what font Technically Personal uses, capture a screen shot of some text, upload it on What the font and see what you find out.
It’s pretty simple to use, just upload the image, fill in any missing letters and let the site do the work for you. I submitted several things – some that I knew the font name and some that I didn’t – and always got a selection of possibilities.
So, if you’ve had your eye on someone else’s font and have been wondering what it is, now is your chance to find out.
One feature I would love them to add will be “download” of fonts identified!! Wouldn’t that be just great?!
