08 January 2013 - 07:38 AMDid you try resetting the text tool. With the text tool selected, look to the top of the icon list - or maybe with PSE11, it's now at the bottom with the tool option bar - but anyway - look for the "reset tool" box and click that.

Another suggestion - I find 'fattening' the text makes it stand out better. Duplicate the layer and then move one layer over one pixel.
To move your layer one pixel at a time, use the arrow keys.

QuoteThe Scrap Girls clubs are released on the 1st of each month - the January one is featured in this color challenge.
The ScrapSimple club is released on the 15th.
Thanks for the clarification. I guess I have a subscription to the ScrapSimple Club. I figured it was just that I was confused, but that's not a new thing for me. />

QuoteDo the colors look familiar? That's right, I got them from this month's club!
I get the monthly club, but it seems January isn't available until the 15th. Is that what you are talking about?
12 December 2012 - 07:38 AMI have Photoshop Elements 4 and 9 (presently own 11, which I haven't yet installed)
I have CS3.
CS3 was fun to play with, but in reality - unless you are a professional photographer - it's overkill for the casual user. I digital scrapbook and I can create all I want to do with Elements.
Unless your son wants to create actions, and wants 100 options for each function rather than dozens, there is no need to spring for the high priced CS.
If he has CS already, there may be upgrades to his CS that are available at a lower price - you go thru Adobe's website to get the upgrades - upgrades available depend upon the version he already has. Same holds true for Elements, however, I have found good bargains at Sam's Club or at Costco - which were comparable to the upgrade pricing.
So, I guess my short answer to your questions is - Elements is an excellent program. CS is overkill for the general user.
Of course, he can start out with Elements and move on to CS if it turns out he wants to move onto the professional level. Those of us who are "Adobe Junkies" are never satisfied with the current version - always looking for the upgrade to "play with" - however, spending our hard earned cash for the upgrade is what holds most of us back.
