    Hi
    Whats the best way to find out what font is being used (if I can make a photo/scan) of a text?
    Thanks

    I found the page
    www.myfonts.com

    Is there any (better) alternative?

    This one works pretty well. some times you really have to tweak the image to get the right results. If you're looking for a script make sure to put a break or a space between each letter. if they are connected the program reads the word as one letter.

    I've had instances where this has worked better than What The Font but chances are if you work on the text a bit in Photoshop (separating individual characters and bumping up the contrast) [as mikeishellachill recommended] that What The Font will be 'good enough'. Not certain what database is better but I wouldn't be surprised if myfonts couldn't identify fonts from Commercial Type or maybe even Hoefler and company as it doesn't sell them...
