Fancy text on images

Good evening! Grin

I've noticed that there are some great framed images that appear on the site that always have really excellent text on them.

Using PS, I can't ever seem to find any of the lovely texts that people are using, so I was hoping someone could help?

Is there some option that I'm not using that would give me a goodrange of classy fonts, are are you folks using a different programe and importing the text?

Many thanks.

Michael.

Michael, I use valadimir script which can be found near the bottom of the list. Try any of the script fonts.

Michael, the fonts available to you are not decided by the software you are using, but by the fonts you have installed on your computer. Many applications come with new fonts which get installed when you install the software and are then available to all other applications, so everyone will have a unique set of fonts on their machines. You just need to choose the one from those installed on your computer that you like the best.

I have a zip file of about 200 different fonts, if you want I'll email it to you, all you need to do is extract it in your font directory of C:/Windows

Unless you have a pretty powerful machine, loading an extra 200 fonts in to your fonts directory will slow up your boot up times, becaus fonts need to be read on startup so they are available to your applications, worth just picking the ones you like, and putting them in your windows/fonts directorySmile

Well, I have over 500 fonts on my PC and it boots in no time at all. Smile

hmmmm, i really haven't experienced much change, and I've got an old Pentium 3 500Mhz with 256MB ram.
I've been slowly deleting the stupid ones that came with this zip pack....
