Buyer’s Guide: Trying fonts with the FontShop Plugin

If you haven’t already downloaded our FontShop Plugin for Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, you’re missing out! Free and easy to use, you can preview any font available on FontShop as long as you have Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator CS5 or above.


When downloading the Plugin, a .zxp file will be downloaded that contains the Plugin for both Photoshop and Illustrator — if you only have one of these programs, you won’t be able to download a separate plugin for either program. Instead, the .zxp file opens up Adobe Extension Manager, which will automatically detect whether you have Photoshop, Illustrator, or both. Don’t worry if you have Photoshop but not Illustrator or vice versa — you’ll still be able to install the Plugin even if you only have one of these programs on your computer.

If you have any questions on how to install or use the Plugin, you can read more about it on the FontShop Plugin page. Don’t forget that our Plugin is still in its beta stage, so if you encounter any issues or have any feedback, please let us know!

While the FontShop Plugin is great for testing out desktop fonts before buying, if you’re looking to test a webfont by FontFont, you can go to FontFonter to try select Web FontFonts on any website.
