RE: Font from picture
A useful tool for just this type of thing is WhatTheFont at MyFonts.com. http://new.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/
Read the instructions on that page, then upload a picture with the font you want identified. If the automated system isn't successful it'll give you the option to post to their forums and let the humans have a look at it. If they guys at that place can't identify it, its probably custom lettered.

RE: Font from picture
if it is a custom font and you have the letters you need to make the word you want, you can...if you dont mind a little time and effort to be put in...

color select the text, once you have all the text selected copy and paste...i would paste it on a smaller transparent work space
and then select the letters you want and then align them as necessary. then of coarse copy and paste the word back and affix.

good luck.
