Using a Third-party app

There are some websites available on the Internet that provides font identification from an image for free, but if you like that font you will need to buy it for using it. I don’t recommend buying fonts. So, the purpose of this section is only to know the name of the font.

On the website, you can upload an image in which the font is visible (the image can be a screenshot of the website from where you saw that font), and then after some processing, the website will give you the font name.
