    Just add it to your system's font folder. PS will find it.


    One doesn't add a font to just one particular application (well, there are exceptions to this).

    As Mike states, fonts are installed at the system level, in most cases (very few exceptions to this).


    The only question will be whether the Futura will display and function properly in Photoshop. Adobe programs, and especially Photoshop (and PrPro's Titler), are very sensitive to the exact fonts. Some are just not well-written (do not know that one), and will not function, or display. My guess would be that, when installed, PS will see it, and be able to use it perfectly.


    Good luck,
