How to Identify a Font Name from Image?

Knowing the name of a font

Sometimes you may like a font which appears on a website or somewhere else as an image. And it would be very difficult for you to detect that font. And if that font is not installed on your system, then it will be more difficult. So, in this post I'm gonna share a website that identifies font name -

Background Story

You know the title font of is Monotype Corsiva. When I visit this site using my Android Phone, I see a different title font. Look at the image below -

The title font in the above image is not one that I used as a title font for my site. But it looks cool! That's why I tried to know the name of this font.

I tried most of the fonts using MS Word to match it. But this font was not installed on my system. 

Later I took help from What Font is.

About What Font is

There are thousands of sites across the web which may help you identify the name of a font. But not all of them are good enough. Not all of them are reliable. I'm recommending What Font is because I got the result quickly using this site. And it's easy to use.

They have more than 300,000 fonts in their database!!

Font Identifying Process

  • First, you've to obtain the clear picture of your text. 

Marks PC Solution heading in Dancing Script Font

  • I've used the above image to prepare this tutorial. 
  • Hit on the Browse button > Choose your text image > If your text background is darker then mark the option Background Color is darker or leave it blank > Hit on the Continue button.

Uploading an image in What Font is

  • After hitting the Continue button, your text image will be divided into pieces according to characters. 
Identifying Characters from Image

  • Check every image and input character. Leave the box blank if there is more than one character in a image. Or if the character is not clear enough in the picture.
  • Hit on the Continue button. Then you will get a list of possible fonts that is matched/ related to your image. 

Pay Attention - 
  • Supported Image Formats: JPEG, GIF, PNG
  • Text image should be in a single line
  • Good quality image
  • Image size should be less than 2 MB
  • Text color and background color should be differentiable

Hope all of you will enjoy this post. If you face any trouble, please contact us . . .

Shake your Phone to Capture Screen!!!

Shake Screenshot works through rotating phone

Well I think not many Android users are familiar with this exciting feature. And I'm not talking about any third party app. Actually shake screenshot feature was not available in the previous versions of Android. It's really a comfortable way to capture your screen on the go!

Very often we need screenshot to save or share something. Sometimes you may need to save a conversation window as an evidence. And most of the time I need to capture my phone screen to make tutorial. Whatever it is, screenshot is essential for us. 

Traditional System

Traditionally, you can capture your phone screen with the help of power button. 
  • Long Press the Power Button > A new Window appears > Choose Screen Capture.
  • To capture a particular area, choose Partial Screenshot > Select your desired area > Save.

  • Requires at least few seconds to capture the screen. And sometimes you may not have that much time.
  • If you're thinking about capturing the window that appears after long pressing the power button, you can never do it! Cause, if you press the power button one more time, that window will disappear.

Shake Screenshot - A smart way to capture . . .

It's been added as a new feature in the accessibility option of your Android Phone. I've discovered this feature on Android 5 Lollipop. 

When you need to capture a screen that appears for a short time (i.e. 1/2 seconds) then you must use this shake screenshot feature to capture it.

Enable Shake Screenshot
  1. From the home screen, tap on the Apps button.
  2. Find and tap on the Settings button.
  3. Scroll down > Tap on the Accessibility option.
  4. Mark the option - Shake Screenshot.
  5. Press the Home button to back to the Home screen. That's it.

Enabling Shake Screenshot in an Android Phone

Capturing Screen

Let's test the new settings! 
  1. Quickly rotate/shake your phone clockwise or anticlockwise.
  2. If the settings is okay, you will hear a click sound and a snapshot will be captured.
  3. Now get your captured screen from your Screenshots folder.
Shake your Phone Clockwise to Take Screenshot

Screenshot Location

Screenshot location may vary depending on your phone. I use Symphony M1. Operating system is Android 5.0 Lollipop.

My default write disk is SD Card. I collect the screenshots as - 

File Manager > SD Card > Picture > Screenshots

If your default disk is phone storage, then screenshots might be saved on Phone Storage.

Hope all of you will enjoy today's tutorial. If you face any trouble, don't hesitate to knock . . .

Test your Site on Safe Browsing Site Status

Google Safe Browsing Report

Couple of days ago, I noticed a sudden fall in my site's traffic. It was not clear why Marks PC is experiencing a decreasing traffic. Later I discovered a harmful content in my site. That's why Google Chrome was stopping visitors to enter my site. Then I fixed the issue with the  help of Google Safe Browsing and Webmaster Tools. In this post, I'm gonna share my experience with you . . .

Warning Message from Google Chrome

About Safe Browsing Site Status

Safe browsing site status is a part of Google Transparency Report. Everyday it collects and examines billions of URLs to find out harmful contents on those websites. If a site is safe to surf then it's okay. 

But if harmful contents are found, Google enlists the sites in blacklist. And Chrome browser shows warnings to the visitors. 

Check your Site

You can check any site on Safe Browsing Site Status. It maybe your own site or any other site you visit often. So, what are you waiting for? Let's check a site on Google Safe Browsing Site Status . . .

Follow the URL below - 

Then you will get following view - 

Google Safe Browsing Report

Here you can see a search box named Status of. In this box, you will enter the link of your desired website. As soon as you hit the search button, you will see the current status. If the site is okay, you will see - Not Dangerous

If any malicious contents are found, you will see the status like dangerous or harmful

Taking Actions

If you're a site owner and find your site dangerous, don't delay a second. Immediately go to the Google Webmaster and sign in there. There you will get a message for critical issues. 

Sometimes you may know what is the problem exactly. Then fix it and inform the Google Webmaster that necessary actions have been made. Then you will request a review for your site.

If you're not sure about the problem, then talk to the experts. Or sometimes this problem might be caused by harmful ads shown on your site. In that case, you need to talk to the Advertisers. 

And never avoid this issue. If you avoid it, then your traffic will fall dramatically. And you will lose revenues. 

After taking corrective actions, Google will review your site. Within few hours (not more than 48 hours) Google will update your security status.
