Font Identifiers

In the past, we’ve mentioned some free online tools that help you identify a font from a sample, such as www.linotype.com/fontidentifier.html, www.identifont.com, and the WhatTheFont feature at www.MyFonts.com (which also has a free iPhone app!).

Here’s another: www.whatfontis.com. One nice feature is that you can tell it to list only free fonts, commercial fonts, or both. Also useful: it provides a long list of alternate fonts, so if you have a font you like, but want a slightly different one, you may find an acceptable option in the list of results.
