Everyone that uses a computer to generate content (a word processor, design in Photoshop) has at some point run into a situation where one needs to emulate a font. Only problem is that you don’t know the name of the exact font or a font that is similar.
This is where WhatTheFont? comes in. It is an application that helps you identify a particular font.
You first upload or link an image for it to examine.
Next, the OCR needs some help. And voilà, you’ve found your font.
As this the recognition is actually quite good, you can skip the browsing through entire catalogues of fonts.
A real time saver!
