Font search and identification utility.

Overview

FontGenius is a font search and identification utility for Mac. FontGenius examines pictures and identifies typefaces of any text within a picture. Using advanced recognition technology, FontGenius will produce a list of likely fonts that match selected characters within an image, and will generate character previews of the matched fonts.

FontGenius can match both installed fonts and uninstalled fonts using a built in font profile database. An Internet search can also be performed on the list of results to locate, purchase, and/or download matched fonts.

FontGenius supports most image file formats, and can even grab an image right from your desktop.

I'm using Find my Font, and was wondering what FontGenius can offer me more than FMF ? It seems to be working similarly.

Sorry guys - no cigar. The database needs to be MUCH bigger for this to be of any practical use. Even identification of one of your own sample pictures (Futura) threw up dozens of wildly different fonts, when the typographer's eye would have suggested only about eight possibilities. It's likely that any app capable of doing a reasonable job of identification would need to cost a good deal more - possibly with regular updates by subscription. Nice interface tho!

Agreed. This software has potential and the UI is nice but it doesn't work well. I actually imported a whole bunch of fonts into its database to create profiles (which took for ever), and the software still failed to find the exact match and gave me a gazillion of very unimportant matches. Just for test purposes, I screen captured a font that I knew I had a profile of (and that existed on my system) and it did not even show up on the list!!!!!! Sorry, but I am kind of bummed out since the actual software has potential but the brains just don't work. Too bad :(
