Bested by Software...

I am positive: If my computer (or rather Photoshop) had actual hands it would rub them together and cackle evilly. You know, the cackling that each and every villain has to master before being allowed to call himself villain. Well, I am sure my Photoshop by now is VERY good at cackling.

It has been pulling my nose since I brought home my last badge of pictures (people who have read the forums, might have seen my plea for help Zea’s ragous outburst about photoshop

Well, I spent another 2 hours just now and I figured out if I use a software like Irfanview and plainly just rename it and safe the pictures on a different location, I can at least change the canvas size again and work it almost normally in photoshop. What saving and resaving JPGs does to the quality though, I don’t have to evaluate here, do I? Either way, at least the image size doesn’t show up with negative values any longer…
However, the typing tool still won’t work and I can’t figure out why. The layer shows up in the layer listing with text and formatting and blending options, but the actual writing never shows in the picture. Neither does the curser or any other framing to indicate WHERE my writing actually IS.

I have decided to post this question as a blog as well, because I assume that not everyone reads the forums (somewhere I read the example about the forums being a busy beehive and in such I totally understand if not at all everyone browses through them – wish I could find the blog entry again, about that busy beehive – I think it might have been something about administrative advise or so).

Eitherway, maybe one or two of you non-forum-browsers know an answer to my dilemma here.
It seems like my PS does not want me to sign my pictures anymore :P

Love from Vienna,
