Temporarily Making Fonts Available for Photoshop
1. Before you start Photoshop, open the font with Windows Font Viewer.
2. Start Photoshop.
3. Once Photoshop has loaded, the font will be visible in the Type Tool dropdown list.
4. Here is one final tip, if you have forgotten to open the font before starting Photoshop, but you HAVE NOT USED THE TYPE TOOL, then you can still open the font with the Windows Font Viewer and make it show up in the Type Tool dropdown list. The first time you use the Type Tool, Photoshop loads all the fonts in the system and these will be the only fonts it recognizes until you close the program.
ADDENDUM: This tip will not work in Windows 7. Because of the new Font Management system in Windows 7, you need to open the font with a Font Managing Program (not Windows Font Viewer) to make it show up for PSP and PS.
