We had review lots of web apps which lets you identify the font used in any web page or documents, identifying fonts from any web page or document will help the developers to work according to fonts and if they wanna use those font on their apps then they can use it by knowing them.

Had you ever got an image in which you had seen some text which you had loved and wanna know what font are they? as it is an image then you will get a little complex to know its font but here is a free web service which lets you identify the fonts used in the image of yours.

WhatFontIs a new web service which is specially for those guys who wanna extract the fonts information from a image. To use this service first you need to make sure that you had image in PNG, GIF or JPEG format, it wont work with other image formats.


To upload a image you can do this via your computer or you can also provide URL of the image, and then click on big Continue button on the right side of the page.

Once you image is uploaded you will be taken to Step 2 where you need to verify the image and enter the back colored character in the box provide just next to the image.

Then click on  next and then you will be presented with the number if fonts used in that image, it will show first 100 fonts used in your photo, you will also see your photo on the side so that you can easily know which font is used where.

You will also find some option at the bottom like, Display only free fonts or free alternative fonts, Display only commercial fonts or commercial alternative fonts, and Display all fonts.


This is free service which doesn’t requires you to make any kind of account on it, you will also find some description of fonts with their names on the Step 3.

It’s a nice service  for those who wanna know which font is used in photo.
