    What are some good fonts to use with gimp/photoshop nowadays - reluctantly I've gone back to photoshop temporarily.

    (target:web design/general assorted design)?

    I lost my large collection ages ago, so I need to rebuild with the latest trends.

    A few that I remember using years ago:


    -Avenir (my favorite, i think)

    -Helvetica Neue (or something like that)

    -Arial Rounded (for a generic rounded font)

    -Frutiger

    -Gotham

    -Akzidenz Grotesk (or something like that) - cool old typeface which was originally created in the 1800's

    -Futura

    -Bank Gothic (only for using sparingly - way overused)

    My favorite is "Sawasdee", an ubuntu native ... it's slim and elegant but yet usable for nearly everything.
