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.

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.

In everio media browser i try to change the "library destination" settings to point to a network drive but get the message "invalid destination respecify a different folder". Are network destinations...


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:
  1. Open "My Computer".
  2. Open the "Tools" menu and select "Map Network Drive...".
  3. Select a drive letter (eg. "V:" for video), type the path to the network video folder (eg. "\\Server\Videos"), and press "OK".
  4. You should now have a drive letter showing exactly what's in your network video folder.
  5. Create a folder on the network share to receive the videos (eg. "V:\Everio MediaBrowser").
Next, modify the Everio MediaBrowser settings.
  1. Open the Windows "Start" menu and press "Run...".
  2. Type "regedit" and press "OK".
  3. Navigate to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ PIXELA\ Everio MediaBrowser\ IMXLIBRARY
  4. 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
  5. Select the "SAVEPATH2" entry and press "Delete". This prevents MediaBrowser from deciding a local drive is a better destination.
  6. Close the program.
Now you can download video into the library on the network.
  1. Plug in your camcorder.
  2. Select "Playback on PC".
  3. When MediaBrowser starts, press Backup at the bottom of the screen.
  4. Select the volumes to backup and press "Next".
  5. 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.

How to use crop tool,magic?


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

I need to curb the text kind of like word art in corel x4 can you help me to do it or how to do it


To create curved text you need to use the text tool and fit to path. When you create a shape, line or curve and then select the text tool you can make the text take the same path as the object you created by just hovering it over the objects outline, you should see the courser change.

1- Draw the a curve
2- Select the text tool and hover it over the curve that you created and then when the course changes click on the line activating the text tool
3- Type the text
4- Select the curve and change the outlone color to transparent

Crop the photo in diffeent shaps like heart.


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.

I am trying to create a cd cover layout using my personal pictures


Hi there,

If you know the file location of your photos and want to get them into Photoshop:
  • Open Photoshop (PS)
  • goto File>Open...
  • Browse to the location of your photos and select them (all if they are in one location or just one at a time for now) and click Open
  • Once they have all opened they'll be stacked ontop of each other. So go to Windows>Arrange>Tile just so you can see them all
  • Now goto File>New and type in the Dimensions you need and use a pixel Resolution of between 150 to 300 pixels/inch then click Ok
  • This has created a new document you can now start adding the pictures to. So now chose the select tool by pressing the letter shortcut 'V' on your keyboard.
  • If you now click and hold on one of your images and drag it over to the blank document you can drop it down. You will notice it has created a new layer in the layers panel on the right hand side.
  • Do the same to another picture and another layer will be added.
  • If you now select the first layer on the Layers Panel and click and drag the image on the main document window you can move it around into position.
From here on you should be pretty fine. If not, post another question. I can also recommend highly Lynda.com as a training resource.

All the best and good luck

Converting text to an object


Select the type object (the Select tool must be used, not the type tool); then from the menu, choose: "Type," then, "Create Outlines." The text will become an object, with multiple lines and curves, fully editable, by each point or line.
