No matter if they’re spoken or written, words can be a powerful tool. While a speaker has the ability to change volume during an oration, it’s more difficult to convey tone while writing. You can create emphasis by using bolds or italics, but you can have much more impact by completely changing the letters to a different style. You don’t need to be a professional graphic designer to become a typography fanatic, as there are thousands of interesting font choices on the market. Here’s an overview of how to install fonts on your computer so you can get started creating dynamic documents.
Much like Windows, the process of installing fonts on a Mac is quite easy. Open the zipped folder and you’ll see a preview of the typeface. From there, you can click “install font” at the bottom of the window and you’re ready to go.
