How to reset text on image back to basic black text?

May 20, 2013 9:05 PM

Tags: #elements_9 #add_text

Fairly inexperienced with Elements. Using Elements 9 I was adding black text to a .jpg image. Somehow during the process, the text being entered defaulted to a "wavy, illegible set of characters". Spent 30+ minutes looking at Help and FAQs and have given up. I want to reset to default simple clear black characters. Closing and restarting Elements does not resolve this issue. When ending a newly entered set of text - still get "wavy, illegible set of characters!"

    I'd try restting the Type Tool by clicking on the small downturned arrow and then clicking on Reset Tool

    Show a screenshot of what you get. Are you talking about the colour or about the type form?

    Your screenshots didn't come through.


    You have to use your computer and actually come to the forum to insert images.

    Inserting images from email doesn't work.

    To insert a picture into a forum message click the camera icon at the point of insert.




    If the picture is too large and you get a message saying so, you can upload the picture to the free service and post a form message giving the pixentral URL.
