How to Identify a Font: Tools and Methods

If you come across a font that you like and want to identify, there are a few ways to find out what font it is:

  1. Use a browser extension: There are browser extensions such as WhatFont and Font Finder that can help you identify the font on a website. Simply install the extension, click on it, and hover your cursor over the text to see the font name.
  2. Use a font identification tool: There are several online font identification tools such as WhatTheFont and Font Squirrel that allow you to upload an image or provide a URL to identify the font used. These tools will analyze the font in the image and suggest a list of possible matches.
  3. Inspect the webpage: If the text is on a webpage, you can use your browser’s built-in developer tools to inspect the font used. Right-click on the text and select “Inspect” or press Ctrl+Shift+I (Windows) or Command+Option+I (Mac) to open the developer tools. Look for the CSS code related to the text and find the “font-family” property to see the font used.

I hope this helps you identify the font you’re looking for!
