Thread: My text wont display on my photo after cropping it on PS!

  1. #1

    Default My text wont display on my photo after cropping it on PS!

    Ok this should be in digital darkroom but response there is slow so I tot I will ask over here.

    Something happened to my PS today. After cropping the photo, I tried to type in the text but no matter what the test wont display. I tried it on other photos and crop it and again the text after typing wont display.

    Does anyone know why?

    Might be cause your photo is locked.

    Try unlocking the layer.

    if you are uploading for the web, you probably want to resize the pictures 1st before adding the text..

    When I try to crop it we need to set the width and height right? So I set it as 2256 x 1496 so as to keep the aspect ratio.

    And it doesnt matter if I resize it before I type the text...the result is still the same. What is happening?

    sounds like a dpi issue..

    do you think the text size (1296 pt) isn't too big for the image size of 2256 x 1496??

    what is the dpi of the image... if it is small, try increasing it, say to 300, without changing your image size... that should help
