Ok so it seems the easiest part of this tutorial has thrown me for a loop. for some reason the text is very small. too small to read even at 1296 pts. whats going on here how can i fix this?
We see this problem once in a while. Please check the resolution (Image > Image Size, Resolution). When I downloaded this image, mine was set to 240. It should be at least 72. (The odd thing here is that you would have downloaded our sample image, so I don't know why it comes in differently for different people.)
I did some searching on this and many of the people who reported the "tiny text" problem ended up having the resolution set too low.
