The process is simple: Scan in a sample of the font, upload to WhatTheFont and instantly find the closest matches in the huge database.
I was trying to identify the font used in a particular design screenshot so that I can incorporate it into my own typography. It isn't a typeface that I was familiar with, and it wasn't in my extensive font collection.
I uploaded this image to WhatTheFont and it was quickly identified as "Neuropol". Job Done!
