How to add fonts to photoshop step by step :

STEPS

1) Go to Dafont or any font website of your choice and find the type of font that you want. Click “Download” next to it. This will take you to a page with more information about the font, as well as an option to download it. Click “Download Font.”

2) Open the downloaded font and install it. If you get a popup saying this is not a photoshop file, don’t worry about it.

3) Go to Window –> Character Palette. It should be at the bottom of the drop-down menu that opens when clicking “Window.” A new window should appear with your character palette icon.

4) Click the little arrow next to “Character Palettes” in the menu bar. This will show you all of your currently installed character palettes that are saved on your computer. Look for the font that you just downloaded and select it. It should appear at the bottom, with a letter and some symbols showing what it looks like.

5) Click the character palette that you just installed and then click “OK.” You should now see your new font in the list of characters.

6) Now, when you open a new image, go to Window –> Character Palette. It will appear at the bottom. Scroll through the list until you find the font that you just added. Click it and then click “OK.”

7) You can now use your new font when making images in Photoshop.  

This process is very similar for other programs like Microsoft Word, but the steps might be found under different menus or options.

There are many free fonts that can be downloaded easily. Simply search the program you would like to use and the type of font you want. The steps will be similar, but not 100% identical for each program.  

In conclusion, it is very easy to download new fonts into Adobe Photoshop or any other image editing software that uses character palettes. This article explained the basic steps about How To Add Fonts To Photoshop
