Text Error

I hope i'm doing this right, it's the first time so please bare with me (:
I'm using Photoshop CS 2 && i've got this text problem very often:
If i write something it shows the text only in big letters...not the small ones...so you won't be able to use handwritten fonts f.e. ... it's all written big...hope someone gets what i mean...lol
Thanx for your help!

newbie

 Hi,

I'm new to this community and also new to icon-making. I use the GIMP 2.6 version and I'm slowly beginning to figure things out by fiddling around. The only thing that is getting me confused is how to use layers.  

When I follow a tutorial, I'm able to do everything fine until I get to the layers bit.  I checked out the archives but all the instructions are confusing me all the more. For instance I have no clue what to do when the icon-tutorial requires me to set the image to screen, change the opacity etc, etc. And when I add a layer and fill it with color  and merge it, the whole picture area gets filled with color and the picture itself disappears.

If someone could help me understand, I would very grateful.

Thanks.
