Post Getting & Using New Fonts.

Spoiler for Reply:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Geting Started

Here's are some nice little websites to get free fonts:
downloadfreefonts.com
dafont.com
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Installing
The easy normal way...
  1. First download the fonts from the site above
  2. You'll have to extract them.
    You'll need programs like WinRar or WinZip the FREE alternative to these is 7-Zip.
  3. Go to your Control Panel then Fonts.
    Chouse Install New Font (from your File menu)
  4. Go to the directory where you have them saved
  5. Chouse Select All (or manually select them) and hit OK.

Now if you go into PhotoShop or ImageReady or any other application you can see the fonts, and use them, even if the application was running when you installed them.

Even Simpler
Another way...

A simpler way to install fonts is to create a shorcut of the Fonts thingy in your Control Panel. Just go left click on it and select Send to... Desktop. Now all you have to do is extract the fonts then drag and drop on the icon to install them.
