Question about Adobe Photoshop CS2 for PC

1 Answer

Text is not the right size

I am adding text to a picture. I hit the T & build the box for my text. I have chosen an Arial font, 24 pt. The cursor is very small & the type is too tiny to read. Even if I increase it to 72 pt, the type is still tiny. I have the picture at 17%, but that shouldn't matter. I have used the text tool many times to do captions, & the size is much larger than it is now. Any clue why my actual text size isn't matching what I'm requesting? I appreciate anything you can suggest for me to try. I have even tried a restart on my computer & the setting was still the same the next time I opened PhotoshopCS2.

With Print Shop 23.1-If I am adding text inside a text box, say font 60 and I complete the line and press "Enter" to start a new line, the font # changes back to what it was previously. Then I have to


When using text boxes I typically type the entire box in the preset font/size and then double click the text or select all, and choose my fonts ,sizes, spacing, etc. afterwards. Typically I use text boxes for smaller font items as I find the headline feature to be the most useful for larger size text. also under the text tab , after you double click your text box, you can select a paragraph style which has presets up to 143. I apologize that I didn't really answer your question, but maybe this will you get you by until you do, that is if you haven't already figured it out.

Problems viewing all installed fonts in Indesign and Illustrator CS2


This is a common problem with CS2 and a variety of fonts. 

Try using this missing fonts loader plugin:

If that doesn't work for you, let me know and we can try something more involved.

I am trying to create a poster for a fundraiser. I can get as far as creating the legal size of it, but then I do not know how to put the 4 pictures onto it and then move them around and resize them. I...


Howdy, here's my 4c worth.

After you have your legal size image ready then go to file > Open > the_file_you need.jpg
Gimp will open it in another window.

just hold CTRL down then press A while still holding CTRL to select All the image
then hold CTRL down then press C to Copy it
Go back to your blank page and hold CTRL down then press V to Paste it.
This step is weird but necessary, in the Layers panel it will have a new layer called "floating selection" or similar. just right click on it and select new layer...
the copied image will be pasted into the new one as a new layer (so you can edit it independently)

To resize it, look at the tools (on the left) panel and select the Scale tool (hover your mouse over each tool to see what it is called). once you have it selected then click anywhere on the image you wish to resize. then it will go into Scale mode where you can "grab" the corners with the mouse and stretch it to your liking. if you wish to keep the Aspect ratio (so it dosn't look stretched and warped) hold CTRL and SHIFT at the same time whist resizing.

And finally the Text!

Click on the A (text tool) in the tools panel.
Click and drag your mouse on the image to create a "text box" (the actual text you type is in a separate little box, but you can edit the color, font, size, etc.. later by clicking the A (text tool) and then clicking on the solid part of a text layer.)

Hope this rambling was of some use.

I dream that i took a bath..then i had a hair falling...what does it means?


To dream that you are taking a bath, signifies a cleansing of your outer and inner self. You are washing away the difficult times. This dream may also be symbolic of ridding yourself of old ideas, notions, opinions, and other negativities. Your dream may be pointing toward forgiveness and letting go.
To dream that you are going bald, suggests a lack of self-esteem or worries about getting older. Alternatively, baldness symbolizes humility, purity, and personal sacrifice. You are at a stage in your life where you are confident in fully exposing yourself.

1.) Did you paste the fonts into a text box in Corel? Sometimes this works better than importing.
2.) try to copy all of the text from Word and then paste into a text box in Corel
3.)Make sure you answer yes to the "maintain fonts and formatting" question when pasting text into text box in Corel
4.) After pasting text, Save the Corel file!

Photoshop 7, always have put text in a photo and all of a sudden cannot. Cursor is huge. All looks normal in tools. What to do?


This sounds like it could be a couple of things. First, since the cursor is huge, go up to the menus at the top and choose Window>Character which will open the character palette so you can change the size of the text. Then make sure the text color is different than the backgrd color 'cuz it could be getting lost. Check your Layers palette to see if the text tool worked as whenever you use the text tool it will make a separate layer for the text. If your font size is small and your cursor is still going off the canvas, it could be that your image is very small. Check this by going to Image-->Image size and you can change the dimensions or the resolution. If the resolution is already low (>72ppi) then the image will pixelate when you make it bigger so try to get a higher resolution copy of the pic.

Text is blurred


Hello,

The problem is with text font size and image resolution. These two are married together. In other words one supports or hinders what the look of the end result will be. Increase the pixel depth of the image and then insert your text with a larger font size and the result should be clearer. As you may know, when you enter text it becomes another layer in your image. Once the object in this layer is created it can be resized. And, resizing may be the answer to get the font size you actually want and a crisp, no pixelated, edge for your type face.

Can you exchange messages with me over the next 12-24 hours as I give you a tutorial with your current project?

I have a business to run myself and just so happens that today and tomorrow I'm pretty busy. But, I've taught this software in version 7 at our community college a few years ago and help local clients all the time with PSP.

Regards,
Worldvet
