When I used photoshop before, i sarted with creating a new file. I choosed how wide and how long i wanted to be. So one day I was in a roll and mest up with the advance settings. Now when I create a new file and import photos to photoshop, the photos are VERY VERY small which didnt occur before. Also the zoom in is at 1%, before the normal zoom in precentage was 66.7% and I could see the file perfectly. Also when putting text on the blank file. I cant see it while writng, even thou my text size is very small or very big. Please help, this is really annoying. Also I have reseted my photoshop preferenses by Ctrl+Shift+Alt.

Then specify the size you need when creating the file.
You control the size when you create the file.

Howdy Eduardo,

When you click File > New or press CNTRL/CMD+N, the New dialog appears.  In that dialog, you as the user control the majority of the parameters for your new file, including the Width, Height, and Resolution.  If you're uncomfortable setting these values yourself, click on Document Type and choose either Default Photoshop Size or U.S. Paper.  The settings are "sticky" -- that means what you did last will be the default values next time, though you can, of course, change them and then these new values will become the default.  

Hope that helps,
