How can I install 'Arial Narrow' Font into Photoshop CS3

I'm trying to design a website for a client and their logo requires Arial Narrow font.

I am urnning XP SP3 and the font is available in Office 2007 Word, but it's not in Photoshop CS3...

How can I make it available in Photoshop please? In fact WHY isn't it there?

copy the fonts you want from...c:\windows\fonts

and copy them into
c:\program files\adobe\...\fonts

and i think there is an option in adobe (possibly tools or options) for use local fonts

that was somethin i did for adobe acrobat and reader not sure about photoshop tho..
In Adobe PhotoShop CS, you don't see "Arial Narrow" as separate font, like in MS Office, but in CS3, you should see it separate from "Arial".

In CS, it appears in the Character panel as Narrow, Regular, Italic, Bold,...

Doh ;-) thanks.

A lot of Adobe forums refer to this being a problem created by the installation of MS Office 2007.  Apparently the preferred subfamily name for Arial Narrow font family files were renamed to Narrow and thus Adobe applications only see the Arial fonts, not the Arial Narrow ones.  

Several Adobe forums suggest that, despite a Microsoft Hot Fix (, the best solution is to remove the Office 2007 Arial Narrow fonts and replace them with Arial Narrow fonts from a machine not running Office 2007.
