Finding the Correct Font

I have taken on the task of finishing a previously started effort by another person. That person is gone and I have not been able to determine the font he used.
Is there any way to determine the font? Thank you
James

What do you have to start with? Printouts? Sketches? XCF files? JPEG files?

If you have xcf (or PSD) files, open them and see what fonts are requested.

If not, use a font identification service - the app Find My Font seems to work quite well if you have an Android phone. There are some online ones too, e.g. at myfonts.com.

If the image you are working on was created by GIMP the name of the font will be in the .xcf file. Short of that, you can use websites such as identifont.com or https://www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/ to get an idea of the font used by telling those sites about characteristics of the characters in the image.

Cheers!

Kevin.
