How To Download Fonts
A Guide By Emily
Welcome! This easy picture tutorial will teach you how to download fonts onto your computer. I used two famous font websites. One's in bold, one's regular. Follow one type ONLY.
Step 1. Go to any font website of your choice, like freescrapbookfonts.com
or dafont.com. I prefer freescrapbookfonts.com for fonts and dafont.com for "Dingbats", or "symbol fonts".
Step 2. Find a font of your choice. I'll use "stinkerella & stinkzilla".
Step 2 (dafont.com). Find a font of your choice. I'll use "Frank Handwriting".
Step 3. If you use freescrapbookfonts.com, click the font. It will lead you to a page like this:
Click that download button. It will ask you to download it, and say yes.
Step 3 (dafont.com). If you use dafont.com, click download. *NOTE: Some of the fonts on dafont are paid for. Watch out!* It will look like this:
• THESE WILL WORK FOR BOTH NOW •
Step 4. This will save it as a zip file. If you use GC like me, the downloads bar will pop up. Click the box that looks like this:
If I'm aware, MF has the same. Or, just save the font to your desktop, go to your desktop, and click the font folder.
Step 5. Go to the zip file. To the side, there should be something that say "Extract all files". Click that:
It will lead you to the Extracting Wizard. Click the next anf finish buttons. Make sure it checked so that you see the finished files.
Step 6. It should now look like this:
It is now a TrueType font file. Right-click copy this.
Step 7. Follow these instruction to get to your computer's font folder:
Go to "My Computer"
Click the Local (the C) disk
Click a folder that says "WINDOWS"
Scroll and find a folder that says Fonts and click it
Step 8. In the font folder, paste the font into the folder.
Step 9. If you're using it for GIMP, Photoshop, etc., MAKE SURE THE EDITING PROGRAM'S CLOSED.
Step 10. Use your font happily!
My PM box is always open for questions about font downloading!
