By default, GIMP uses the fonts available on the system, but sometimes you want to use a font that is not installed on the system. This will explain how to add extra fonts to gimp.
- Get the font you would like to use. For instance, dafont.com supplies a lot of different and very well done fonts.
- If the font(s) are in zipfiles (or other packed fileformats), unpack them with the appropriate tool.
- Start up GIMP
- Click Edit->preferences
- Expand Folders and click Fonts
- Move or copy the font files to the folder specified. Alternatively, you can add a second folder containing your fonts.
- Restart GIMP
Now the new extra fonts should be available in GIMP.
