Text too small

This can be changed from display settings if you are talking about the text on the desktop ..Just click right on the desktop ..choose properties and select the last in the right ...settings you can select a smaller resolution ..(best for 17 inc is 10024 /768 )and click apply and OK ..
if you do not want to change the resolution but need larger icons and text ..just select on the same window advanced..and you will have the possibility to increase the icon and text size with the percent you want ...After that click apply and OK to exit ..It may ask to restart for to apply the changes..
if you are talking about the writing in the can zoom it by changing resolution ..or by pressing down the ctrl button and scroll up or down ..
Also all text size can be selected manually for each location if you click right on desktop and in the window select appearance (second in the right 0 and advanced..This advanced feature will allow you to select the size color and font size for each item by one between them ..for title and menu bars..etc.
But , I suggest not to mess with that ..cause you may not be able to manage it well ..just engage a smaller resolution and will solve the issue for the writing .

How to edit picture?


You don't say which operating system you are using.

Photo Editing requires Photo Editing Software.

To do basic photo editing (cropping, rotating, flipping, adjust brightness, adjust contrast, adjust image size, adjust colo(u)r, adjust exposure, adjust size, adjust red eye) you can use free, built-in software that comes bundled with Windows and Microsoft Office such as: Paint, Microsoft Picture Viewer and Windows Photo Gallery.

In increasing order of editing functions:

Windows Photo Gallery: Fix > Auto Adjust, Adjust Exposure, Adjust Colour, Crop Picture, Fix Red Eye

Microsoft Office Picture Viewer: Picture > Brightness & Contrast, Colour, Crop, Rotate, Flip, Red Eye Removal, Resize, Compress.

Paint: Image > Flip/Rotate, Resize/Skew, Crop, Invert Colours, Adjust Attributes, Clear Image, Opaque.

In Paint you can also use additional tools to manipulate the image or add or delete shapes, text and colour (with a selection of writing or drawing implements): Free Form Select, Select, Fill with Colour, Magnifier, Brush, Text, Curve, Polygon, Rounded Rectangle, Ellipse, Rectangle, Line, Airbrush, Pencil, Pick Colour, Eraser/Colour Eraser.

In Windows Photo Gallery you can view and edit the same image in either of these 3 programs by clicking Open.

For more advanced photo editing, you can use the bundled software that comes with digital cameras such as:

Adobe Photoshop Elements



Photo Studio

For more advanced, professional standard photo editing you must buy expensive Photo Ediiting and Graphic Design software such as:

Adobe Photoshop

Adobe LightRoom

Adobe Illustrator

Adobe InDesign


Corel Painter

I hope this helps.

How do I increase text size

Are you referring to the default text size Vista uses? Then, contrary to windows XP, in Vista you have to separately increase the text size for different instances.
1. Right click on the desktop and select personalize

2. Select Windows Color

3. Select the required item of which text size is to be increased.(for example: Icon, Message Box etc.)

4. Then you can change the text size, font, color, and font weight
