Installing Additional Fonts on your Phone Tutorial (Phonto)

Give Away Winners Announced & a Kinfolk Give Away 

looked what arrived in the mail.... Kinfolk Volume Seven.... Yes

Hello lovelies.... How are you? I hope well.

I'm popping in as promised to announce the give away winners from Sunday's posting.... I also have another iPhone/SmartPhone tutorial.

Have you tried the app Phonto? It's awesome..... It's packed full of fabulous fonts you can use to add text to your photos on your device. I LOVE it. There's a ton of fonts already in the app, but like most font-attics.... I can never have too many at my fingertips.....

So I put together a quick little tutorial..... walking you through a quick & painless way to install fonts from you computer onto your phone or device.

Phonto gives you the instruction for installing fonts using iTunes... But I have another way to share with you.... using dropbox or a cloud storage system. Check out the tutorial for a little Phonto tut and the step by step instructions for adding fonts to your Phonto app.

Sidenote: you will need to know where your fonts are located on your system. This varies from PC to Mac....but a quick google will get you there.... Also be sure to copy not move the fonts to your dropbox folder.

Okie doke.... check out the video below for more details.

Let's move onto the give away winners.

The winner of a spot in my upcoming Photoshop/Elements class, Picture Pro-cess is: Karla

How 'bout a chance to win a copy?

To enter simply leave a comment below.... anything goes...

I will announce the winner in a few days. 



So much gratitude.... Until next time....

I'd love a copy of the spring Kinfolk. I purchased the winter edition because of you and loved it. :)
March 13, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKristina
What a gorgeous magazine! I'd love to have it --- spring is the time for fresh inspiration, isn't it? Looks like I could get some from Kinfolk!

Hi Kim. I would love to win. I can never have too many beautiful magazines. But more than that, I am eagerly looking forward to my Photoshop 11 class in April. I'm going to Mexico for spring break on 3/25 and plan to take many pictures. It will be fun playing around with them once I learn how to use my new Photoshop. Take care and have a blessed week.

It wold be so nice to win Kinfolk. With all the not-so-good things that have been happening in my life lately, a browse through a lovely magazine would be a pleasant diversion. Thanks, Kim, for the opportunity.

I love Kinfolk - lovely and inspiring, I would love to win a copy! Thanks for all the info and updates!
March 13, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJenn
Thanks for the great tutorial!
I have a tech question...
How do you get your iPhone demo onto your computer screen to do the tutorial? Is there software/app that does that?
Hope that makes sense...
March 13, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKaren
You inspire me to try things I never thought I could accomplish.
For this I thank you with all my heart.

Hi Kim,
I've always enjoyed cool fonts, but lately... well let's just say it's good to know I'm not alone with this serious addiction... WOW! Kind of like with textures, I honestly don't think it's possible to have too many :) Unfortunately I'm still unemployed so I'll have to try and catch a future class, but a gorgeous edition of KINFOLK would sure ease the pain and pass the time until summer gets closer and places start hiring, hint hint... lol ;)
March 13, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterScott Allan
Kinfolk looks like a great magazine! Thanks for sharing all your inspiration and knowledge!
March 13, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterNatalie E.
Hi Kim,

I get your newsletter and always stop by to see what you are up to and a friend is doing your course now and his photos are amazing. I have gotten a few of your textures and really starting to learn them. I am writing because I see you have an iphone app and would like to request an Android app. So many of us have Androids and are hoping that you will include us in all these wonderful textures and info you are so graciously teaching and sharing. I have a new Samsung Note tablet and Android phone so would love to have the ability to do some texture work on them. I see I have much to learn and will be checking for short classes I can do soon. Thanks for all you do!!

Hi Kim -

Thanks for taking "figure out how to add text/fonts to instragram" off my "technology bucket list." That litlle "not enough time" thing on this end to do the looking and learning. Thankfully, my Canadian Technology Assistant (that would be YOU) took care of me once again. Thanks tons!!! Enjoy your week,

Happy Spring......your knowledge and sharing is a gift. You are so thoughtful to always give so many things away. I know I appreciate it all very much. I love to learn and read and would LOVE to win the copy of Kinfolk. I love looking at your work and using the amazing textures. You have so much talent....Thank you for sharing, as there are a lot of people who won't share. I have never taken classes and I have learned most of the things I do by reading, which I love to do. Once again, thank you so much and have a wonderful day.

I love interesting new magazines...and I've never heard of this before, but I do love the front cover with the lady holding the giant ice cream cone :)

I"m also going to check out that phone photo app, too :) :)

Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

Thanks so much Kim, that was a huge help! I also didn't realize that I could crop it for IG in Phonto. I was moving it over to square ready to do that. So, another big help.

I have heard of Kinfolk and would love the chance to win. Looks beautiful!
March 13, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterAnita
Would love to get my hands on Kinfolk!
March 13, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterS.Welch
Would so love to win.
March 13, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterjoanna
Wow! So exciting to see that you are making tutorials for the phone! I now use my phone for most (if not all) of my photo editing needs. I simply love my iPhone camera more than my computer! ;). I admire your style & your art.
March 13, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterHeidi Guenther
Oh my gosh! More fonts! I can hardly wait! I'm so excited about the phone apps too. Is it really legal to have this much fun as a grown-up? ;) I've never had a copy of Kinfolk. It looks like a purely delightful magazine, full of inspiration..... love that!
March 13, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJudy Johnson
Kim, thank you for the tutorial. It is gracious of you to freely share so much. My hand is raised for the issue of Kinfolk!
March 13, 2013 | Unregistered Commentermelody
Oh my, thank you so much for sharing this video. I tried to install the fonts using iTunes and gave up half way through. This is so much easier. I use dropbox all the time to share photos and PDFs, never thought of using it this way. Genius!
March 13, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterCindy C
i'd love to win a copy of this magazine. have never read it but it looks wonderful~!
