    Is anyone good at guessing a font?!

    Hello,

    I am looking for this font or similar and was wondering if anyone would know or have a guess as to what it is? Cheers, Dan

    Can you link to that image rather than embedding it please.

    I just did a WhatTheFont search for you, and it came out with the font:

    Basic Commercial Roman

    If you would like to do your own search with this tool, I have attached the image I used to this post.

    You can upload a crop of that image here (http://www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/) and it will try to determine what font it is...

    Oh right, I was looking at the whole collection price. I have just found a free font that is similar to what I need on Smashing Magazine, think I will download that and make a donation.

    Thanks so much for your help, I didn't know about that Font Finder tool.

    How accurate is it would you say?

    Cheers

    Dan

    Well, you will notice that I didn't just crop the image you provided, but put the contrast to 100%, so there was a very clear separation between the colours, and easy for the tool to recognise the edges. If you can get any font into an image like that, then it's pretty much perfect.
