Adding new fonts to list of fonts in GIMP

Just thought that documenting this will help someone.

Procedure to add new fonts to list of fonts in GIMP :

1. Download the required fonts. Extract them in some directory.  You will get to see the <fontname>.tff file.

2. Open GIMP -> Edit Menu -> Preferences -> Folders

3. Expand the Folders tab. You will find a FONTS tab therein.Just add the path of the directory in which you have extracted the .tff file. Screenshot Attached Below.

4. Restart GIMP. Your new font is  added to the list of fonts.
