    Question deciphering fonts in an image?
    Is there a utility available to decipher which fonts are being used in an image?

    thanks

    Easiest way is to just try and spot font style name in the image with those you might have on your computer HD. Try the freeware "Font Glancer" .... http://software.kirys.it/downloads.php

    If you upload a sample image someone on ABW may be able to recognise it.

    Thanks! what the font works decently well, only limitation is when the image has complications - i just edited the image to remove superfluous information and it worked 'reasonably' well.

    Yep, the more complicated the image, the more trouble it will have... but I've always found it reasonably good
