Now that you have some lovely new fonts, you want to be able to use them, right? How do you get them from their font files to the programs you want to use them in? Like Word, or photoshop?

If you’re on a Mac, like I am, One click and drag will make these beauties available in your intended applications.

Move them from your downloads into a new file, name it, oh I don’t know “fonts” – you know, be cryptic and mysterious.

Click anywhere on your home screen so your finder menu is in your top menu bar. Click on “Go” and them “Computer”.

Believe it or not you’re almost done.

Ok, next up, you need to be in your “HD drive”, click on it and this will get you to a screen were you can select “library”.  Now that you’re in library you’re looking for “fonts” – yup! more cryptic mysteriousness, it’s a Mac thang.
