Previously, I had explained how one can utilize WhatFontis tools to identify which fonts were used in an image. In this post, I will be mentioning some tools that will help you identify the fonts utilized in the website, and also images. Some tools might pose you with some questions, and after answering them, you will get a result that will be based on what type of answers you provided.
I will also be including some browser extensions, which will further simplify this work for you. So without any further due, let’s get into it.
This online tool will help you identify the font used in an image text. I have already explained in detail about how to utilize this tool, and if you haven’t read it, you can do so here.
All you have to do is, upload the image that contains the text, or you can just enter the URL of that particular image. It will analyze that image, and give you the results, and if those fonts are not in its database, it will select an alternative, that is the closest replacement of that font.
Unlike other tools, this is a group that has different font experts. So, if you want to know which font was used in an image, you will have to post it, and then wait for the experts to reply to it.
Another online tool which may ask you specific questions to derive the best answer. Other than that, it provides you with other options that contain different types of fonts based that are on their names, and similar in their appearance. Other option that it provides is that you can set specific parameters, and it will display particular fonts that fall into it.
Another online tool that will ask you specific questions that will describe the font seen by you. And based on that answers, it will provide you with the list of different fonts that match closely with your description.
This tool will only help you identify the Serif fonts on a particular image. Again, it will ask you questions, and based on the answers you provide, it will draw conclusions that will include different types of Serif Fonts that it thinks matches best with the description you provided.
This is a browser addon that will identify the fonts used in a particular web page. After installing this addon, all you have to do is, hover your cursor over the text of which you want to identify the font, and it will get you what you want. Simple as that. But there are some limitations; it can only be used in Safari and Chrome browsers.
For people who don’t like or don’t use Chrome or Safari (for some reasons), this is for you, because it is an add-on for Fire fox. But for this to work, you will have to do some additional work. You will have to highlight the font of which you want the details, right click, after that selects Font Finder. Now it will show you the complete information about what kind of fonts is being used in that particular highlighted text.
So, this sums up our post for today. If you think that I have missed something, or there are some other services or tools that you use to identify the fonts on web pages and text images, please let me know. Because I’m always checking out new things.
