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.
The background ha a lock symbol and when i tried to drop the text box an additiona layer is created and this layer is not locked. How do i unlock the background...? Is that the cause?

Are you typing black on black???
Nope I tried different colours and it is still the same.

I am using photoshop CS2. I didnt have this prob before.Very frustrating!

Text size 1296???? How big is your pics?
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?

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 :)
