I have been setting type fine. Suddenly when I create a text box on a photo, or new layer on the photo, a red transparent screen covers the entire photo or new layer. The type reverses out of the red screen so that the photo shows through the letters. HELP I'm on a rush project!

Which application are you using?
Which version?

That sounds a bit like you might be using Photoshop or Elements, used the text selection tool by mistake, and are seeing the quickmask red overlay for that tool.
