Ever need to track down exactly which font was used in a client’s old logo?

You can make that task much easier, using the great WhatTheFont tool on the MyFonts website. Upload a scanned image of the typography in question and this website will automatically generate a list of the closest matches in their huge database of known fonts.

Plus, if you find the font you are looking for, you can buy it directly from MyFonts.com.

This is a pretty handy trick!
