How do I download fonts into PS Cs4?

Sep 20, 2009 2:08 PM

I just got Ps CS4 a few days ago, but I'm pretty handy with Gimp, so I'm not totally new to digital art.

Anyways, how do I put fonts into CS4?

    Yes, I can see you might need some new fonts...

     

    CS4 uses the fonts in the system fonts folder. Install in the normal way, control panel > fonts > install new font.

    Make sure you have the fonts in you C: drive... if you downloaded a zip, just unzip them to C: (no subfolders) and when you do like D Fosse said (Control Panel > Fonts > Install Fonts) it'll find it right away. Just wanted to note this, because I always unzip to my desktop and it wouldn't find it lol.

    No need for that if you use the "browse" function in the Install Fonts dialog. It's an old relic from the DOS era.

    John,

     

    Generally, there is a Browse function, but I didn't have one... I'm using XP Home. For me, when I pull up "Install Font" I get the "Add Fonts" window, and under "Folders:" the only option I have is "c:\windows" and a drop down for Drives. None of those give me the option to select a front from my desktop. I had to unzip the fonts to my C: drive for them to be seen (or I could have unzipped to my external G: drive).

    I assume you get this dialog.

     

    add font.jpg

    In the Folders window:

     

    Double-click on c:\


    Double-click on Documents and Settings


    Double-click on your Username


    You can then see the Desktop, My Documents, etc.

    That is correct John. Sure I could have browsed through my C: drive to point to my desktop, but wouldn't it be easier and save time to just unzip to C:\ ?

     

    But yes, either way works fine, up to the user. =)

    it depends on the operating system, Vista and 7 don't like it when people put stuff directly in C:\ so you'll get a UAC warning
