Congratulations on making your first greeting card! You all did fantastic on this section of Lesson 4. Also kudos for making your first meme during a pop quiz! Again, I am very proud of your progress so early in the class and look forward to seeing your Photo Booklet from this week’s homework.
Homework can be emailed to me by sending a screen shot showing items in your thumb drive, Edit or Organizer workspace.
For those problems and questions that weren’t addressed in class, they will be posted here:
Q: Why doesn’t my “Text On Selection Tool” work?
A: This was a common problem because of the way it is explained in the book. What the book does not tell you:
This tool is loaded with a 2-step function and process. The first step lets’ you select an area or shape of color (using built-in magic wand selection properties) in order to make a text path (see path question from week 1).
Once you have approved the selection, it automatically turns into a path (Step 2) so you can begin typing along the path shape.
Couple things to remember: once you approve each action (green check-mark at bottom of selection), you can move your text and path around for positioning by using your black arrow selection tool. This is another option than what is mentioned in the book.
When using text in your project, PSE automatically makes what you type into a new layer. To select the text, you can either double-click the text on your image or the text icon in your layer menu.
