    Downloading fonts

    I have a photoshop document that I need to edit and I need these fonts GothamCondensed Bold, Gotham Medium, GothamCondensed Light and Gotham Black. How do I found out if I need to buy them? I've never installed fonts before so I am not exactly sure how it works. (I did watch a youtube video to help some).

    I went to this site http://www.fontslog.com/geometric231...-otf-17127.htm and ended up on this page http://downloadfreely.com/start/?p=EZ-Fonts I did install and download the EZ fonts, but I still don't see those fonts in photoshop.

    All the font sites appear to be very confusing with lots of crappy ads on them.

    By the looks of things, Gotham font is a commercial font that you would have to buy in order to use in projects.
    http://www.typography.com/fonts/font...tLineID=100008 is the purchase page but it is available at other shops.

    If the PSD is for a client that has already bought the font, they may send the ttf file over to you.

    For font installations.

    You didnt say what operating system you are using so I will give you them both.

    Windows 7 etc
    Either right click on the font file and select 'install'
    or
    double click the file and it will open in the font viewer, from there you can click the install button.

    Mac OSX
    Copy or Drag & drop the font file into your Library>Fonts folder.

    Note: if you have photoshop open and the text tool selected, you might need to select another tool so that the font has chance to be loaded.
    then reselect the Type tool .

    Note 2: You may find the font downloadable in other locations and it is your choice whether to install it or not. There are alternatives and similar fonts available.
