In this tutorial, we’re looking at installing fonts on Macs and PCs in Illustrator and Photoshop. We’ll be using two products from the Design Cuts marketplace – Mademoiselle Script Font by Moonloop and 50+ Hi-Res Autumn Photos by PinkCoffie.

We’ll first guide you through the basics of extracting the files and accessing them on both types of desktops, and then get into fiddling with the font. To explore the contents of the font, we’ll head to the Glyphs panel and see the range of characters installed as well as the alternate letters that make the type look different. To go more into depth, we’ll test out the available swashes and show you how to change the spacing between characters.
