Is there a way to match a text style from an image? I have a link image that i need to make a new one with the same text style , but i can't seem to find the right text to match. Is there a way of doing this without going through every text in photoshop?

You could give WhatTheFont a go at recognising the font... http://www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/ you can either upload the image file or point to its URL... then, you have to match the highlighted letters... it'll return the closest matches in its database... Otherwise, you could resort to converting the image fonts to vector graphics... ^_^

I uploaded the image , but i dont understand the second step. It didn't put a letter in the text box , just showed the image.

did you crop and deskew the image to show just the text, like as shown on the site?

I didn't know you had to do that. I tried it again with the image cropped. It gave me like 40 results for different texts , i tried with a different image using the same text and gave me different results. I'm just going to do all them over again with a different font , spending too much time trying to find the font to fix 2 buttons. Thanks for the help thought!

Hey, I don't think that you can do that. Now the only thing you can do is somehow go through all the fonts on the computer/photoshop. Sorry about this, I think its the only way. Make sure you have a good day, Happy Lotting!!
