    I am in the process setting up my aphotofolio.com website flash/html mirror/ipad/iphone/android

    To change the font I need to purchase it.

    So I'd need to buy a that's OK to run with a flash website.

    Should I buy them from Adobe ($30)? Are the other sources that offer fonts at $15 of less quality?

    Thanks,

    I don't follow you, but I think you can get quality free fonts to do the job, you just need some time

    I found out the website comes with a large amount of fonts built in.

    Well, if I really want to buy a special font, I can do that from Adobe, but I don't think it's necessary.

    To the poster who commented on this thread: if you need a certain fonts for e.g. a software like Photoshop, or a flash website, you buy it, just like you buy software. You pay, and you download the font file and install it.

    Nostromo -- I think you missed his point..

    There are websites that GIVE AWAY fonts for FREE. www.1001freefonts.com
    He was suggesting you check out one of those.

    Not everyone pays for software.

    As I said, I saw that the website I bought has a vast choice of fonts already built in and I probably won't need to buy one.
