Intro: How to Add Cool Fonts to Your Computer
Ever wanted that cool font you saw on a sign? Or the Coca Cola font on your school work?
Well this tutorial will show you how!
You will need:
A Word Processor, examples:
>Microsoft Works Word Processor
Step 1: The Website
This is the website that you will need: Cooltext.com
It is a free, non-profit website that has a database of thousands of fonts.
Go to the main page first.
Then click on 'Fonts' in the bar at the top.
The fonts page should look like the second picture. It catargorises the fonts into lots of different sections, such as Brandname, films etc.
Step 2: Choosing a Font
For this tutorial, I chose the Coca-Cola font.
To find it, click on the 'Brandname' catagory.
You should end up with the screen in picture 1.
Scroll down until you find a font that is called 'Loki- Cola'.
This is picture 2.
Step 3: Downloading
Click on the 'Loki Cola' font.
You get the screen on picture 1.
Click 'Download'. I'm using FireFox here, so it comes up with the dialog box in picture 2, the options are- Open, or Save. ALWAYS choose Save. Then press OK. There should be a box like this on other browsers, I haven't tried yet.
On FireFox, once the download is complete, the box appears in picture 3, again, on other browsers there is some sort of download list.
Step 4: Installing
In the doanload list, click on the font you just downloaded, then click on 'Open' in the list that comes up. (Picture 1).
A screen like this next one should appear, it is the coding for the font itself.
At the top there are 2 boxes, 'Print' and 'Install'. Click on install.
Your font is installed, CONCRATULATIONS!!!!
Now for testing the font.....
Step 5: Testing the Font
Open up a Word Processor, then go on the fonts list.
Find 'Loki Cola', and clock on it.
Type loads of warble-garble on the page in the Coca-Cola font!!
