Find Font Names from Images with WhatTheFont

WhatTheFont is a web based font recognition service, a part of MyFonts, which finds font names from images. It can also be called a font identification service.

When or why anyone would use this?
If you ever find a picture containing pretty fonts and you don't know its name, WhatTheFont will help you find the name of the fonts used in the picture.
Just provide the image url and it will be processed. Alternatively, you can even upload images from you computer.
After uploading is complete, WhatTheFont tries to retrieve the closest matches from their database.

I got to know about this thanks to the font enthusiast who posted this at Gecko & Fly.
