This is my first tutorial so please bare with me. I realized there wasn't a tutorial for downloading fonts so i decided to make one. Here goes.....

Step 1: Find your font from a website. I like to use fonts from <ahref="http://www.dafont.com</a> because they have a wide variety.

Step 2: After choosing which font you want click download.

Step 6: When it opens you'll see a box with somethings in it. all you have to do is click extract files which is on the left side under Folder Task.

Step7: An extraction wizard should come up. Just keep clicking next and finish.

Step 8: When thats done. You will see what you downlaoded. It should look somewhat like this.

Step 9: You can close it and all the other windows that were opened including the website you won't be needing it anymore.

Step 10: Now open Adobe Photoshop.Go to File Browser.

Then click the font that you downloaded. Right click and open file.

Step 11: Now just look through your fonts and your font should be there. Look through the whole list of fonts because sometimes it isn't in alphabetical order

Its different for CS3 users. If you use vista and CS3, the font folder is in C:>Program Files>Common Files>Adobe>Fonts. After you saved and extracted the font, right click and click install. It should install automatically. For you use XP and CS3, just drag and drop the font in your font folder.
