The text in photo elements 11 is small. Can this be enlarged?
Yes it can be enlarged and you can also change the font style. At the bottom of the screen, you will see something like this:
All you need to do is to select your test (if you have already typed) and then change the font size as shown in the picture within the red frame. Sometimes, if the text is very large, it might disappear from the screen and if this is the case, you need to enlarge the text layer by dragging it until you see the text.
I hope you get the idea from this.
The size of text in PSE is determined by the resolution of the image. Text that is large in a photo at 72ppi resolution will be very small at 300 ppi. You may need to type in a size much larger than any in the pulldown menu, but you can type the size you want right into the box where the pt size is displayed.
