Learn how to identify fonts from an image so you can use them in your own designs.
Here are few photos I took the other day when I was out and about. I'm going to try to identify the font in this photo. I could try finding this font in my existing fonts I already have in Photoshop by looking through them, but I've got thousands installed and it could take me a very long time. Instead, if I have a photo with a Latin font like English, we can use to new Match Font feature in Photoshop to identify the font in a photo.
To get started:
open the image in Photoshop,
select the Rectangular Marquee Tool in the Toolbar,
drag to select the region of the image that contains the text,
then choose Type, Match Font.
Photoshop shows me the possible fonts that are matched that I already have installed on my machine, and it searches the Typekit library and identifies fonts that are available to your Creative Cloud subscription level so that even if you don't have the font installed, you can click this little Cloud icon in the Match Font dialogue box, which will sync the font your machine.
To use this:
crop tightly on the text you want to identify
notice that you can adjust or move your selection to a different part of the image to identify other fonts.
I'll select this Quimby font I have and click OK
Now, I'll use the font identified by Photoshop, Quimby, to add some text to this design.
There, I think this font works well.
Now you know how to find fonts in Photoshop CC using Match Font.
