Did you download the FontShop Plugin yet? Well here are some tips to help you use it in Adobe Photoshop CS5. I’ll go over two features to assist you in finding similar fonts and how you can use tags to help you compare typefaces in a single document.
First choose a typeface, for this example I’ve picked FF Tisa OT Bold Italic. Then click on the find similar icon which is highlighted in the image below.
You should get a list of similar fonts.
I know it’s hard to choose just one, but tagging multiples is as easy as clicking a few buttons.
Once you’re ready to use the fonts then you can click on the tag and you’ll see a list that you can use to create multiple preview layers within a single document.
Please note that every time you create a preview, the visible text layer is turned off. So just turn on the text layer you want on to create a new preview layer. All preview layers are labeled with the name of the typeface that is being rendered.
Wasn’t that super easy? This plugin is amazing!
