Identify the font (name, type) on the net, for free fonts download the respective font (if the font is inside an ZIP archive file extract/unzip the font from that). Install the font on your system (Win/Mac via a right click Install, or double click). Start Affinity Photo it should now have added and show that new installed font too in it's font list. Then use and place some text on an your image, select the text and choose it to be this font type.

Note that Affinity just reuses the operating system wide installed fonts.

The ‘Matcherator’ on Font Squirrel is the same as the one on Fontspring.

Some childs have more than one first name, some call it via the one or other. - In this case (fonts) I just listed what Google gave as a quick link overview.

I guess you haven’t used it! I have, which is why I was aware that they acknowledge where it comes from (“Powered by the Fontspring Matcherator”). For what it’s worth, I tend to use WhatFontIs more than the other ones.

Hello,

I don't understand how to download and upload it to Affinity. Also when I tried on one of the websites it gave me many options but I want the exact font. Can you please try and let me know what you get. 

Thanks

I use those seldom and I also recall, that one or two such services when once tried out weren't that good in determining/recognizing font types. Also one such service I then tried didn't listed freeware fonts at all, instead only commercial ones and there was no option to change this.

That’s one of the things I particularly like about WhatFontIs: they give you a clear choice between freeware only, commercial only, or both types. The other sites either make it difficult to find the freeware option or give you no choice at all.

Ok, that font you listed first looks to me like a standard Arial one, so a font which usually is already part on most operating systems (Win/Mac). In Affinity Photo just use the Text-Tool (artistic or frame text) select "Arial" from the top context menu font selection list, set up a font size for that there and a color to use, you can also make it bold if needed.

Ask them what, Dex? Can you see any difference between the font in the logo and the Arial Bold in @v_kyr’s video?
