Re: My type tools does not work.
Perhaps you've got the text color set to the same color as your background (both white). With the text tool selected, left-click on your document once, then left-click on the 'set the text color' box in your toolbar. Choose a color that is dark enough to show up in your screen. Make sure your text size is large enough to show at your current screen resolution.

Copyartwork from a damaged repair illustrator file.
Open the damaged file, and then choose Object > Path > Cleanup to remove unwanted items (for example, stray points, unpainted objects, empty text paths) from the artwork.
If the original file contains multiple layers, choose Paste Remembers Layers from the Layers Panel pop-up menu to ensure the artwork appears on the same layers when you paste it into the new file.
Using the Selection tool, drag a marquee around the artwork.
Choose Edit > Copy.
Choose File > New to create a new file.
In the new file, choose Edit > Paste In Front to paste the artwork in the correct position on the page.
Choose File > Save.
If the new file exhibits the same behavior, it may contain a damaged object. To determine whether an object is damaged, delete it from the new file, and then save and reopen the file and try to re-create the problem. Repeat for each object in the file.
When you can no longer re-create the problem, delete and re-create the damaged object in the original file:
If an Illustrator-drawn object is damaged, then re-create the object with the drawing tools in Illustrator.
If a linked image is damaged, then re-create the original image, and then replace it in your artwork.
If a text object is damaged, then convert the text object to outlines or change its font.
To quickly change all fonts in a document:
Open the document in Illustrator and Choose Object > Unlock All.
Choose Edit > Select All.
Choose Type > Font, and select a font not currently used in the document.
Note: To prevent text objects from becoming damaged in the future, reinstall the problematic font from the original disk.
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.)
No, they're not allowed, but I've found you can change it manually in the registry. Always be careful changing the registry. Mistakes can break Windows!
First, make sure the network share is mapped to a drive letter:
Open "My Computer".
Open the "Tools" menu and select "Map Network Drive...".
Select a drive letter (eg. "V:" for video), type the path to the network video folder (eg. "\\Server\Videos"), and press "OK".
You should now have a drive letter showing exactly what's in your network video folder.
Create a folder on the network share to receive the videos (eg. "V:\Everio MediaBrowser").
Next, modify the Everio MediaBrowser settings.
Open the Windows "Start" menu and press "Run...".
Type "regedit" and press "OK".
Navigate to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ PIXELA\ Everio MediaBrowser\ IMXLIBRARY
Double-click the "SAVEPATH" entry, change the value to a path using the drive letter you created above (eg. "V:\Everio MediaBrowser"), and press "OK". This folder must exist, so create it if you haven't already
Select the "SAVEPATH2" entry and press "Delete". This prevents MediaBrowser from deciding a local drive is a better destination.
Close the program.
Now you can download video into the library on the network.
Plug in your camcorder.
Select "Playback on PC".
When MediaBrowser starts, press Backup at the bottom of the screen.
Select the volumes to backup and press "Next".
MediaBrowser should now say the destination is the network drive. Press "Next".
I have not attempted to import existing videos from a network share yet. That could be another challenge.
yuo want to know how to use the crop tool and the magic wand?
crop tool works just like everything else it works like it does in word powerpoint ect
the magic wand this selects the areas which are the same colour which are touching each other
imagine in a picture filled with back the corners are white but the white corners are not touching each other when you click on one of the white corners with the magic wand then that whole white secon of that corner will be selected
and to make that into a layer you can either copy that selection or cut it from the original by right clicking and selecting either layer via cut or layer via copy
go here it is a really good page on photoshop help

The crop tool will not let you crop in shapes like elements cookie cutter tool will. However, there is a work around to do what you want to do which indecently is the same as you would have to do in Photoshop CS4. 1.Create a new document file or press Ctrl + N. 2.Open an image you want to crop. 3.Press Ctrl + A then Ctrl + C to copy the image. 4.Select the new document file you created and press Ctrl + V to paste the new image in a new layer. 5.Select the Rectangle tool or press U for the hotkey. 6.Move the mouse over to the Rectangle Tool and hold down the left mouse button and select Custom Shape Tool. 7.At the top of the menu you will see a Shape: icon with a pull down option. Left Click on the arrow to expand the window to select the shape you want. If you want more shapes to choose from when the shape window is displayed click on the arrowhead with a circle around it and select a new library or all. 8.Use the mouse to draw the shape to the size and location you desire. 9.The shape will be in a new layer with a mask which will cover the image. Hold down the Ctrl key and left click on the Shape 1 layer in the layer window. This will mask the shape and only the shape. 10.Press Ctrl +Shift + I to invert the mask selection. 11.Use the Select pull down menu to Feather, Modify, Contract, Expand and Border if you want apply those effects around the edge of the mask. 12.In the Layer window click on the eye next to the Shape 1 layer to hide the image. 13.Select the image layer you want to crop and press delete which will delete everything outside the custom shape you created. 14.Do not forget you can right click on the image layer and select Blending Option to add drop shadows and other special effects for the cropped shape.
