Converting Google Fonts to Truetype

At last, I found a good online tutorial for converting Google fonts so they can be converted to ttf, loaded with Main Type and used in Photoshop! Here is link to video:

Thank you for the useful technique to acquire some OpenSource fonts in a useful format, but it's not anything to do with using MainType, so I moved it here.

You can also open WOFF fonts in FontCreator, which will export them to TrueType or OpenType formats, or indeed, back to a new WOFF font after editing it if required.

Stage One Copy the URL to Use the selected font.
