How many times have we seen a font used in a magazine, on a box, or in an advertisement, and wanted to find out what font it is? Up until I discovered WhatTheFont!, I had to go through every font in Word and compare it with the original.

WhatTheFont! is a tool to help you discover, well, what font is being used. You upload an image, and the website splices up the image into many little images containing one letter or symbol. It’s remarkable what it can do for you.

For example, I took this Honey Bunches of Oats cereal box, and put it into the font finder, and voilà: Mushmellow. Now all I had to do was find the font, download, and install it. Within minutes, I was using it to create a parody of the world-famous cereal box.

I hope you will find this tool useful!
