    Looking for a Font Recognizer

    I am looking for a tool that can recognize a font type. Ex. If I am recreating a logo or image with an embedded text, I would like to know the exact font type used. Is there an image scanning program that exists, or an OLD MAN on a mountain that knows all FONT types that I can consult? ;-)

    Any help is always appreciated. C/

    Also, if you want to post your favorite FONT programs (freeware is always great) and/or links to your favorite FONT websites are also welcomed!

    Thanks again.

    This isn't what you asked for, but sometimes I find this online tool useful:

    Online Font Tool

    Or maybe this would help:

    Font Analyzer

    i dont know of any offline ones if that is what you are looking for but these are good

    http://www.identifont.com/identify.html - to identify a font by answering a series of questions about it

    http://www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/ - analyzes an image of the font and then lists the closest matches or an exact match if there is one

    forums where the "OLD MAN" lives :P
