Introducing WhatTheFont, a revolutionary tool that allows users to easily identify fonts used in any image or artwork. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to use this feature on the Monotype Fonts platform.

Step 1: Access your Monotype Fonts dashboard

To use WhatTheFont, navigate to Monotype Fonts and sign in to your account. Once you are logged in, go to the dashboard. In the search bar, click on the camera icon.

WhatTheFont page displays.

Step 2: Upload your image

Upload the image of the font that you want to identify.

Note: You can either upload an image from your computer or use the URL of an online image. Ensure that your image is of high quality and that the text is clear and in focus.

Step 3: Select the text

After uploading the image, select the text in the image that you want to identify. So that WhatTheFont can isolate that specific font.

Step 4: Identify the font

After selecting the text, click Identify font. WhatTheFont will analyze the image and provide a list of font options that match the selected text. You can then select the font that you want to use.

Step 5: Sync the font

After identifying the font, sync it to your Monotype Fonts account by clicking on the Sync icon next to the font name. This will add the font to your account and make it available for use in your projects.

Alternatively, you can favorite it or add it to a list to come back to later.

Step 6: Use the font

Once the font is synced to your account, you can easily access it and use it in any design tool that supports Monotype Fonts. Simply select the font from your design program's list of available fonts and start mocking up your design.
