  • Need help to add fonts to Adobe Photoshop

    How do you do this? Its easy to add fonts to InDesign and Illustrator. I have no problem with that. I just export/drap fonts into font folder of InDesign and Illustrator and its added to the font list. But when I do it to photoshop it doesn't work. Need help

    I think you need to quit completely out of Photoshop and then relaunch it in order for it to update the Photoshop font list. At least that's what I have to do.

      It didnt work. Do you put them in the fonts folder or Composite Fonts folder? When I go into the Composite Folder another folder shows up named Temp.

        I use a font manager to add fonts. I'm on a Mac, are you on a PC? If so, I'm not the best one to ask about font management, hopefully someone on a PC will be able to be more helpful.

            If you wait for a bit, someone on a PC will be able to help you, I'm sure.

              In Windows you should, in general, only need to add fonts to C:\Windows\Fonts. There are occasional problems with apps not necessarily rescanning the font directory, though. It's more reliable if you go to Control Panel -> Fonts, and from the File menu select Add Fonts, then add the fonts through the dialogue box that appears.

              (If you tick the box that says Move to Fonts Folder, they will be permanently installed, if it's unchecked then they will only be installed until your next reboot.)

                Ok thanks..Now adding fonts to C:\Windows\Fonts will update my font list for all of the programs at the same time such as Illustrator and Indesign?

                  That's the Windows system fonts folder. Any font in there is available to all applications running on the computer.

                      If you are talking about a portfolio you have in a case and take with you to interviews where you will be doing a presentation of the work, a written blurb is not needed.
