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.

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.
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.)
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!
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.
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.
