I have PS 7, and for some reason, whenever I try to make a selection using the marquee tool, it says either, "no pixels were selected" or "No pixels were more than 50% selected. The selection edges will not be visible" when it is apparent that I AM selecting something. (It does this even when I try to select a large chunk of an image)
The "select all" option works fine.
Can anyone help me out?

(I hope it was ok to ask this here)

ps7 weekly tutorial...

Hey everyone,

I'm trying to decide what topic to cover in the first issue of my (soon-to-be weekly) PS7 icon tutorial.

Got any suggestions, anything you'd specifically like to see covered?

These in-depth, illustrated tutorials will be posted once a week (Fridays, more than likely), at red_tavern, as friends-only posts.

Howdy all. New to the community, and new to Photoshop. Which leads to a couple of PS7 related questions.

1) How do I adjust the color level of a picture? In PSP, I just go to color level -> increase or decrease. Not quite as clear to me in PS7.

2) Why is it that some images will not allow me to dupicate or make a new layer?

3) Sometimes my text goes nuts. If its working normally, when I'm using 04b_03, I would do 8 pt, but sometimes that comes out absolutely HUGE and I have to go down to 2pt to make it look normal. Anyone have any idea why it does that?

Thanks in advance!

xvid to divx?

I have a video in xvid format, and I need to make screenshots of it with Virtual Dub for my new icon. However, Virtual Dub does not recognize xvid formated videos. Is there a way to convert xvid to divx, or to any other formats supported by Virtual Dub?

Edit: never mind, just realized that I only have a xvid decoder. works fine now.

ARG! I'm so aggravated at the current moment in time. When I first got PSP8, I was able to have fonts be different colors and whatnot. Well, I must have messed with something because for awhile now, I can't get them to be a certain color I want, they only come out white, and I've tried checking the anti-alias box, but it doesnt make a differance! I checked the memories, and I apologize if this has already been asked, but I couldnt seem to find it :\.

so can anyone help me? It's just making me insanely mad right now.

size of text

for some reason, the size of the text is bigger than usual. even when i put it at font size 6, it shows up bigger. this happened before, but somehow i fixed it. did i accidentally click on something? why is it doing this?

Not sure if I'm wording this as clearly as possible, but here goes:

(Don't use this icon)

How do I make my font transparent except for the stroked outline? I want just the outline to show up and everytime I've tried it my way it ends up deleteing the stroke as well...any help would be appriciated.


I use Photoshop 7.
