Picture this: You’re browsing the Internet – possibly looking at Pinterest quotes or inspiring Instagram images with text – and you come across a font that sparks your curiosity. Just like hearing that catchy song on the radio and not knowing it’s name, you’re not sure if you will ever be able to get your hands on such a beautiful typeface. Well in today’s world, we’re quite spoiled with technological advances, meaning you can say goodbye to that nagging feeling once and for all.
Here, we’ve compiled the following font detection tools for images to help you embody your inner Sherlock Holmes. Not only will we show you where to go to find these hidden font gems, but also how you can preview them on your stunning website, and then later upload them to turn your design visions into a reality.
Essentially font detection tools from images all lead you to the same finale: a font that you just love. So, what’s next? You might admire the way that font looks on the image, but you won’t know how it will be captured on your website until you try it out. So, before you download your chosen font and swap the old one for the new in your website editor, you can preview it first.
Google Font Previewer for Chrome is perfect for just this. It’s an extension that lets you test the looks of different fonts on a website without entering any back office or editing mode. With just the URL and extension, you can preview any font available within the tool. Furthermore, if there are fonts that you like to test often, you can ‘star’ them, as in mark as favorites in your app. If you’re looking for a quick fix, this is a great solution. Once you’ve seen enough different versions and you’re happy with your selected font, keep reading to find out how to welcome your font to its new home.
