    For me the sample photos works best because i visualize
    my design in my head. But i will be incorporating some of this great ideas.

    Simple but great idea!

    I tend to start by setting which kind of fonts will not be useful for me. Slab,serif, sans, etc. And later on, when I decide for one or two kinds try using the ones I know. It non of them have worked, I start surfing the internet for extra references.

    I have a lot of font that i really don't have used for,haven't got around to cleaning out

    In my Font Sample folder, i only include the type which i deem very useful or with a lot of potential.

    These are all great ideas! I've been looking for a Font Explorer for my desktop!

    I've been using wordmark to preview fonts in a browser.

    I use FontExplorer X Pro. Been using it for years. It almost never crashes or creates problems; which is nice for a font-managing tool. In the past it was a different matter.

    Wow http://www.wordmark.it works great,I'm very impressed.

    My only concern would be security, since technically it's connected my computer.
    No possibility for a backdoor?

    Nice tip, I have a folder with some inspirational pics (which's something that everyone must have) but never saved font samples, will do it now.

    Cool tread, I was thinking about that the past few days !
    http://www.wordmark.it seams so great !! I will certainly use it in the future !

    I also thought of making a Photoshop file with all my image samples and maybe the glyphe or something, and play with the layers to make appear one or the other. (I don't know if my english is clear?). It's a lot of work to do, but usefull, don't you think ?

    So far, I've been using myfonts.com, I just insert the project's text, and search a suitable font by tag. (For example, Chic, chic fonts). But, wordmark.it seems perfect for me! Thank you!

    For me the visual sample are a great source of inspiration & time saving.

    But I'm wordmark.it blew me away, i haven't have time to get in to it, but you bet i will this weekend.

    I think it's all about time management. The more quick visual reference available, the less time spend, looking for that right type.

    Next i have to tackle my clip-art collection.

    This is exactly what I have done and it has saved me so much time. I will also be adding the jpegs to make it even better. Nice tip
