Help with font

Does anyone recognize the font of the text that says "Amanda...." (the bigger text)? If so, what program did you find it in? It looks like something that would be in Photoshop, but I don't have PS loaded on this computer and I can't get at my disc (long story). I really like this font for my invitations, which I'm doing in FireWorks. However, I can't find a font like this that comes with FireWorks or Office.

Well I went to the "View typestyle options" link down that page and I think it's the one called Schneider, I can't seem to find it anywhere though.

Thanks! That sounds very familiar. I'll see if I can d/l it somewhere...

Yeah, it's Schneider.

But unfortunately, it's a pay font, and I can't seem to find it on any of my sites where you can download those for free.

Um . . . not that I would know how to do that.

Yeah, I've been looking everywhere. It's weird b/c I recognize the font and the name, like I've worked with it in a project before, but it doesn't come with the current photoshop CS, so I have no clue. I'm going to use the next closest thing. The font costs $249 and I plan on paying less than half that for all of my invitations.

Font prices are ridiculous. I've never understood how they justify the cost.

A couple of good places to look for free fonts that might be similar are:

www.dafont.com
www.creamundo.com

yeah, i don't get why fonts are so expensive either
the site i use is www.abstractfonts.com
they have a lot of free fonts, and they're really easy to download and install. all you need is winZip to unzip the files, and once they're unzipped, you just have to drag the little icons into your FONTS folder (located in C: > Windows > Fonts) and you're ready to use them!
http://abstractfonts.com/category/47/serif
^ those serif fonts should be similar to the Schneider one you're looking for.

abstractfonts also has LOTS of categories...jsut click the "categories" option on the left hand menu, and a billion categories of fonts will pop up for you =)
