All the fonts stuck on uppercase

I hope I'm allowed to ask this here, if not feel free to delete! I checked the memories and couldn't find anything so I'm hoping someone will be able to help!

I'm using Adobe Photoshop 7.0 and for some reason all the fonts (including those that used to write in lowercase letters) are locked on uppercase only. No, my caps lock is not on on my keyboard, so I'm thinking that I might have accidently changed a setting somewhere on the program but have no clue what it was. :S

Huge thanks in advance to anyone who might be able to help! :)

I really suck at placing text, making it look nice and such.
I was wondering if anyone knew of a guide, or tutorial, or something that helps with text on icons.
if not that's okay, I was just wondering ♥

(no subject)

I've come to realize that the icons I make on my computer often look oversharpened when viewed on other computers, while looking fine on mine.

Just wondering if there happens to be any way to fix this, or if my only solution is to under-sharpen when I make icons in the future.

scratchy textured background

I was wondering if anyone knows how to get that subtle but effective scratchy texture in the background of the above Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants icon (by forkeeps)? I've been trying to use textures to replicate the effect (such as the one above by wash_when_dirty) but the result is really soft and blurred, whereas in the icon it's rather crisp and quite distinct .

Does anyone know where I could find textures to produce that scratchy look, or perhaps some steps to do it in PS7 (the program I use)? Any help would be very much appreciated. :)

Not an icon tutorial

This is a technique tutorial which can be used for wallpapers/headers/icons etc. If it has already been covered by someone, the mods are free to delete it.

I present, a tutorial on how to convert any actor into Harry. We will be adding glasses and the scar to the actor's face. You can call it a manip maybe.

I made it on PS but I am sure you can use other programs. Also, I strongly think that you should not click this if you don't have a basic knowledge of the program. I am not going to tell you how to select and copy parts of an image.

isolating color question

hi, i'm new to Photoshop and I've really learned a lot from this community and all the wonderful tutorials. So, I have a question. I've got PSP7 and I'd like to know how I can achieve this coloring:

(icon snagged from lespapillons)

without desaturating and then coloring in everything by hand, because that's what i've done in the past to get a similar effect. Also, I'd like to know how to get that white in her skin. Thanks for any and all advice. :)
