    Got a question, I dont even know if this is possible but...

    I am not happy with the selection of fonts that CS2 has. Can I buy a disc of fonts and use them in photoshop? How do I get them into the program if its possible?

    Thanks,
    Doug

    yes you can. You can also go to www.1001freefonts.com and get some fonts from there. And its really easy to get them in your CS2.

    n addition to the fonts installed on your system, Photoshop uses font files in these local folders:
    Windows Program Files/Common Files/Adobe/Fonts
    Mac OS Library/Application Support/Adobe/Fonts
    If you install a Type 1, TrueType, OpenType, or CID font into the local Fonts folder, the font appears in Adobe applications only.

    Thats from the help file in CS2. So you just download or buy the fonts and copy them to one of those folders, start CS2 and you can use them.
    Hope it helps

    ah daan beat me to it but...
    yea sure its possible.... you can also download loads of free fonts from the internet. Once you have them downloaded you can just move them into your fonts folder. (control pannel > fonts folder)... then when you start up PS again they will be in the list.
    Do a google search for free fonts... you should get quite a large selection. ;)

    I've been using http://www.dafont.com for all my fonts. Not as extensive as 1001, but I feel they better suit my style

    I bought a cd from Best Buy for less than $10 with 5000 fonts on it. It has been great. :D Then I do not have to wait for the page to load on the internet
