Newbie Notes: Fonts 1
on’t you just LOVE fonts? When I was studying Graphic Design, I absolutely fell in love with the use of typography as an art form, as an expression of beauty in itself, and with its ability to create ambience and mood. And when I discovered free fonts – well! Suffice it to say that I have 700 plus ahem, a LOT of fonts.
If you are anything like me in this respect, you will have discovered that having all your current favourites loaded makes Photoshop a little cranky to load. So, when I learned that it was possible to make a font available for use in Photoshop WITHOUT LOADING IT, my little heart went pitter-pat.
And it is so easy! All you have to do is open the font(s) you want to utilise before you open Photoshop, and when you select your Text Tool, the font will appear in the dropdown menu as usual. Now join me in a happy dance….
