Question/Title sums it up.
How can I copy fonts from images in Gimp 2.8.0? I'm using/running the Windows version of Gimp.
I have dozens of images that I'd like to copy fonts from just to experiment/tinker with.
Here's a sample image:
It's not automated processes, but you may be able to convert the letters in the image to a font if you proceed as follows:
Simply put: you can't. The image file, being raster, is just a collection of pixels with colors: it has no information about which fonts are used.
What you could try is a service like WhatTheFont, which (claims to) be able to identify which font is used in a text. But (as noted in a comment), for better results, the background behind the text needs to be (mostly) the same color.
