Fonts for dummies

I'm sure most of you will find this post useless and silly; but then again, there might be 1 or 2 dummies like me who don't know how to install downloadable fonts. Well, actually, who didn't know how to install fonts until today ;).

Speaking of dummies, yesterday I watched an episode of Bones where she buys Booth the book "Plumbing for Dummies" ... Only she mistakenly called it "Pluming for Imbeciles", haha, I thought that was hilarious.

Anyway, the world wide web is filled with sites that offer free downloadable fonts. In order to be able to use such fonts you just need to download them, double click the file, click "install" and that's it. You'll then find that font available in programs such as Word, PowerPoint, Paint, etc. Had I known it was so easy, I'd have been using the hell out of them!

The one I used in the following 3 pics is called Jane Austin, designed by Pia Frauss, and can be downloaded here. Don't hesitate to browse through her whole portfolio.





 
My second favorite font is Mitre Square by the same designer.




And this one's called Ozh.




You can find lots more in Dafont.com. Have fun downloading pretty fonts! ;P

Have a great one! ;D

I have been living in the same bubble as you obviously! I did not know it was that easy to get fonts! I always get frustrated adding fonts to pictures

don't you love it when you discover a great new font? i've been trying to keep the ones i use on the blog down to just a couple, but it's so hard! i always want to try a new one. i especially love that first font you chose :)

have a great night, miki!! xoxo

I've installed fonts before....way long ago when I had my PC, but not since I've had a Mac....which has been years, so this was a good reminder that I desperately need to do this and stop using the all too comfy and slightly boring myriad pro...hehe. Will be checking the links out:) Have a good evening darling Miki! xx Marisa
