Hey guys, I'm having a little issue with text in Photoshop 6.0. Occasionally when I try to add text to a picture I've made, the text is so small it's not even readable, even at, say, 100 font. I can't figure out any ways to make it go away, and it's really starting to get on my nerves, especially during this new sig project I've started on.

Any help or references would be appreciated.

Make sure you highlight the text you've typed before you set the font size?

make sure the image ur ur creating is the appropriate size and zoom as well. it *could* be alot bigger than you think and just zoomed in alot... possibly doubt it, but possible

Well the strange thing is, I've even opened other documents while mine is acting up, and their text sizes are all normal.

Resize the text after you type it with the transform tool.

Quick question about text. How do you add an image to your text? Because I want blood as my text "color" but I don't know how to add it. :confused:

put the blood as a new layer over your text, hold ALT and click the line between the layers (you'll see an icon by the cursor if you're doing it right). The top layer becomes invisible except over the text. That's called a clipping mask.

w00t, i have had the same exact problem, hence why my sigs have basic fonts...but what i usually do is bump it up to 1296 size, usually somewhere around there will make the text show up on the sig...but its a pain in the neck to deal with it that way.
