Finding what font my letters were created using....

Finding what font my letters were created using....

Finding what font my letters were created using....

Hello. The art I work with is always letters. In illustrator, if my art is still in raster format (e.g. it hasn't been vectorized using create outlines yet), I can tell what font the art has been created using; however, once the art has been vectorized, there's no way to tell that I can find.

I need to see if there's any possible way to figure out what font my art was created using once the art has been vectorized.

Thanks so much,

RE: Finding what font my letters were created using....

...it's not possible directly in illustrator to know what the font was after being outlined, unless you have a copy somewhere that maintains the font (like another layer)...

...the best option to date is to use an online font identification tool from myfonts:


...here you can upload a bitmap sample and the system will attempt to identify the font, if it fails then you have the option to post it to the forum to have a font expert look at it.

apepp: Thank you for your response. I wanted to see if this was at all possible..and sounds like it's not.

Also, I checked out the link you sent and feel that may be helpful so I'll give it a try - thanks for sending.

Thanks again,
