I found a neat thing to find fonts

Ok so, this site, fontsquirrel, was on a list of resources from my after effects class. As you can see, it’s got free stuff. But I noticed something immediately upon visiting the site:

Matcherator? In my 4am homework stupor, I thought it was maybe a search engine for the site itself under a cool name, but it turns out it’s somethin’ else pretty cool.

As you can see, you can throw in an image, and it’ll try and find a font that matches its appearance. So I decided to use the hastily-made vector of my future webcomic’s logo to see what would happen.

Apparently some things overlapped, so I went ahead and cropped it to narrow down the results.

When you crop the image, you can see the “glyph boxes” where it’s finding the letters in your image. You can crop from here and, apparently, rotate it and stuff too? I didn’t use that.

…So what does this do?

After you upload your image and crop it or whatever, it gives you a list of matching fonts!!

There were quite a few more than this that also cost money.

But looky here! There’s a FREE one at the bottom of the list. Click the circled part to take a closer look at the font.

Look at all this stuff! You can look at examples of the font, the separate characters, and all this other stuff. Some fonts have different types, like bold or italic that might be what the matcherator gave you. You might have to look at all the different types to see which kind fits best.

Be sure to take a in-depth look at the font’s license while you’re here!! It might be a little tricky to understand and/or lead to a lot of googling(i know it is for me, at least. i am NOT an expert in this stuff and the big words confuse me), but it’s important to know how to use free stuff without it being, y’know, illegal or infringing.

In the “Test Drive” tab, you can type whatever you want and see how it’ll look in that font.

With just a wee bit of photoshopping, I’ve got a much cleaner logo with a similar feel to the one I drew. It’s not an exact copy by any means, but it’s nice to look at.

Also, this is not the same font that was listed up there. I did this earlier and got a different font than when I was taking screenshots for this post so… I don’t know what changed it. I cropped the same image in the same general way and it was still different. Who knows!

Hello. I’m Bethany Joy Lenz, it’s nice to meet everyone who answers this. Haha. Let’s add something cool to this. I went shopping today and found a couple neat things. Such as a cute sweater and a pair of Snoopy socks. ….maybe that’s not so cool. I’m 34 years old with Snoopy socks. Oops.
