Why I’m So Happy with PicMonkey and You Will Be, Too

Use your own fonts on PicMonkey

PicMonkey now allows you to use your own fonts!

That’s right — you can select “Yours” and you’ll see the fonts from your computer’s font book.

I’m so stinkin’ excited I can’t stand it.

But, let’s get down to some serious font talk, shall we?

How to Get Cool Fonts (on Your Computer)

You want to have more cool fonts on your computer, don’t ya?

You can go to these top sites for free fonts:


Font Squirrel 

Google Web Fonts


Download a font. Open up the folder and for each font category (bold, italic, regular) click on it to open.

Then — install the font. (Sometimes you have to restart your computer or program for the new installs to show up.)

You’ll see it in your Font Book.

I’ve had corrupted font files whack out my computer so a word of caution. I don’t know how to predict which fonts are corrupted though. My best guess is that you only download fonts that have been downloaded a ton already. (Look in popular or top category of fonts and check how many times the file has been downloaded.)

Be sure you read my tutorial on how to pair fonts — so you your fonts look gorgeous and not crazy.

What do you think – isn’t this great news?
