    Default How to find font size and colour?

    I have been sent a letter in the post. I scanned it but I want to find what font size and colour it has been printed in. I have photoshop elements. How can I do this?

    Thanks

    You should be able to do this with OCR software. Optical Character Recognition software converts images of text (scanned documents) into text. And from there, your word processor should be able to tell you the font, and text size.

    I've also used the WhatTheFont service in the past with some success. Your mileage may vary.
