Font size problem on Elements 10

May 12, 2012 9:40 AM

When I try to add text to a particular picture the font size appears huge  taking up half the screen.

Changing the font size only helps slightly even when I click the font down to 6. How do I correct this?

    When the Text tool is selected, click the little arrow at the left of the Options Bar, and select "Reset Tool".

    Is this happening to only that one picture?  What are the image dimensions and pixels/inch?

    I'm at a loss then, for those particular files.  As a test, try opening one of them and using File...Save As and picking the same file, answering "Yes" to replace the existing file.

    Back to my earlier question:  what is the pixels per inch (PPI) of one of the failing files?

    Yep, it's the resolution that's causing the problem.

     

    Open the image, and use Image...Resize.  With all the boxes at the bottom checked, first change the "Resolution" to "72", then change the top units to "percent" and change the value to "100":

    Yep,  you can do a test on a directory with a few of those photos, using the Editor's File...Process Multiple Files and selecting the "Resize" option's "Resolution" setting.
