There are lot of fonts manager out there. But if you have a very extensive font collection you can spend hours looking for the right font to fit a particular project.
But what i found most helpful it's to created a folder with JPG of sample of the font in used. This way instead of looking for the best font type. I can find the font that best fit how i envision the image of my design.
The font designer all-way used the best possible used of the font in the sample pics, so in my opinion more the half the work has already being done for you.
