Download FREE custom Fonts for Photoshop & Other purposes

FontFeature

This article contains references to various sites for downloading and installing custom Photoshop fonts.

Although Photoshop users mainly use the software to edit snaps, Photoshop can be effectively used to create design templates for Web Development and also posters for promotion and stuff.

Now, creating a template or a poster means that there has to be some amount of descriptive writing inside it.

The spatial presentation of the writing and its customization indicate the level of importance of the text.

Hence, we feel the need to use different fonts for the text.

Let us look at some of the sites from where Photoshop fonts can be downloaded. All of these sites provide fonts for FREE, but some fonts might be restricted for personal use only, while others might be free for commercial as well as personal usage. Be sure to check the license before you decide to use them for your commercial projects.

refont.com- Free Photoshop Fonts

Refont.com was one of the first sites that I had visited when I had to incorporate Photoshop fonts for my system. The site basically categorizes Photoshop fonts by the type/style of customization. On clicking of a particular font, the page reloads to display each character in that font set. Having a wide range of fonts, it is one of the better sites to search for Stylized fonts

1001freefonts.com- Download free fonts

1001freefonts is one of the older sites for Photoshop fonts. There is a clean, almost Spartan style of decoration by means of which the fonts are categorized. The one good thing about this site is that it includes a Custom Preview option for each font. Here, you can insert a sample text in a text box and the transformed stylized font will be generated. This feature alone makes this site very much recommendable

Urbanfonts is one of the newer sties that has come up in this field. The cool thing about this site is that the Mouseover event over a particular Photoshop font generates an instantaneous display of the name of the font in its own style. Aside from this,the Custom Preview option is also available here.

dafont.com

dafont.com was actually suggested to me by a friend of mine a few days back.The site is actually quite good.It provides a very good user interface and a clean mode of categorization. Selection of a particular Photoshop font results in the page reloading and displaying the font’s entire character set. The only downside is that no Custom Preview option is available.
