Free online font identifier

Are you a graphic designer, photographer, blogger, advertiser, font freak, curious by nature or just dying to find out what’s the name of that awesome font that you saw on a website?

Then search no more, and let me tell you about WhatTheFont :

With WhatTheFont , a free online font identifier, you are only three steps away to find the name
of the font that you just can’t stand not knowing about.

font identifier

Step 1 allows you to upload a screenshot of the font or to enter the url of the image.

Step 1 also lets you choose how you want to browse through the 230,000 fonts: display only
free fonts or free alternative fonts, display commercial fonts or simply display all fonts.

Step 2 verifies if the characters viewed by WhatTheFont match the characters of your uploaded
image, that you need to input into the box next to the displayed character.

Step 3 identifies the font for you. If it doesn’t find the right match, it suggests 100 alternatives

you can scroll down through and choose the one that most resembles your font. In most cases, WhatTheFont also specifies the websites where you may download/buy the identified fonts from.

Many of these fonts are available for free download.
With its huge font gallery and a very high processing speed, it is a fun tool to try out.

Overall I am impressed by this tool and can really highly recommend it.

I remembered there was a great online tool where you you upload a picture and it was driving me crazy cause I couldn’t find the bookmark…you saved me!!!! I was trying to match the header font of the “Lactontiese Magazine” wordpress theme. Now I can continue with the customization. ;o) Thanks!

Very interesting! I actually use this: to identify fonts but your tool can come in handy as a quick solution for my other PC. Thank you very much for sharing:)
