Program question

Yep, it's me again. Sorry to bug everyone. Again. LOL. I'm thinking about switching to Photoshop, as I use PSP now. Everywhere I turn I seem to hear nothing but good things about PS and like the sheep that I am, have decided that it's at least worth a try. Thing is, I don't want to spend 900 bucks on CS2, which seems to be the best one Adobe offers right now. I've been looking at PS Elements 4.0 on Amazon...which is a little more in my price range, and I wondered if it was worth buying? I know it can't really come near CS2, but I wondered what kind of things it offers, like for example selective coloring? I'm just frustrated with PSP and what little it seems to offer compared to Photoshop.

Any help, suggestions or whatnot is greatly appreciated.

Problem with Photoshop CS2

Whenever I try to pick a color from a picture using the eyedropper tool, it makes the color my background color instead of my foreground color. It's not a big deal, really, but it's starting to get annoying.

I checked the memories for this and couldn't find anything on it. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? If you couldn't understand that, I can take a picture.

Positioning mini movie on base (ImageReady)

I have done this before, but can't, for the life of me, remember how I did...

I have one base and an animation. I want the two combined. The animation on top of the base.

I know you can paste the base under the animation, but that seriously limits your positioning options. There should be a way to drag and drop the animation to the exact spot where you want it. Too bad I can't remember how... *scratches head*
Help? Pretty please?

More Professional Looking Text

Hello, I'm trying to make an icon with this photo and the quote "A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on." But I can only do really basic fonts, that don't look nice or even remotely "professional." I want it too pop out almost, but I don't know how to do that. An example would be like the text in this icon, by meleada

I checked the mems, but nothing was really specific on it.

EDIT: I'm sorry...I use PSPX

I know I've seen a post about this somewhere, but I can't remember if it was here or elsewhere, so I'm hoping some of you can help me.
I've read that there's a way to find the colours of a picture by using the "save for web" feature and extracting that palette somehow. I'm pretty sure this was for PS (I don't even know if the "save for web" thing exists in PSP). I can't find the way to extract it >.> I'm not sure if I'm supposed to save that palette and then open it or what.
BTW, I use PS CS2. Hopefully this was understandable and someone can help. Thanks =)
