    I am doing a presentation on Google and in making the title slides (PowerPoint) I would like the subtitles to match the way the Google logo looks. How can I achieve this? Does anyone know the exact font (is it Times?) and also what word art or shadows I might use in PowerPoint to get the look?

    Well, some googling netted me this tutorial on how to get the bezel/shadow effects, which might be helpful for a Photoshop-newbie: http://www.logoogle.com/Photoshop-Tutorials-Google-Logo-1.htm
    Not the right typeface, though.

    The actual typeface used for the Google logo is Catull (Berthold), and can be found here: http://www.identifont.com/show?HF but I doubt you want to spend $150 for a font just for some subheadings. Most websites say the closest approximation most people will have is Book Antiqua.

    Or, if PS is not an option, there's also this online website which doesn't look exactly like the right typeface but is pretty close, good enough for your presentation perhaps and much easier: http://googlefont.com/?q=Hello+MacRumors!&submit=Create+logo!
