Hiya Kristelle,

What application are you running?  What version?  Which operating system?

When you say that you're adding text to your pictures, how do you do this?  Are you confirming the text when you're done?

Thanks,
David

Photoshop elements 11. I use the type too,l and I have a mac. Normally I just need to click on it chose the font and color I want and it appears on my pictures just fine but lately it just does not show up. It shows I am typing but it's like it is invisible on the image. I have tried changing it's layer position and the color of the font but it still does the same thing.

And yes I confirm the text when I am done.

Hi Mark,

Are you also running Elements or are you running Photoshop?  Also, you might want to check out this thread: https://console.getsatisfaction.com/photoshop_family/conversations/my-text-wont-show-up-on-my-graphi...

Thanks,

David, it's the Online Photoshop that you pay $10 a month for.

There is no such thing as "Online Photoshop", and the creative cloud subscription allows you to download 3 major versions of Photoshop (CS6, CC and CC 2014).

Hiya Mark,

Chris is right; you're almost certainly running Photoshop.  You can tell by clicking Help > About Photoshop.  What do you see?

Also, did you try the steps I posted in the other thread?  I'm pretty sure that'll solve your problem...

Thanks,
David
