    Hello everyone, and thanks in advance.

    Using Photoshop 7.01 for Windows, I cannot do now what I have done hundreds of times before: add Type to an image.

    Old images with type can be edited with no problem. But with all new files created, the type does not appear on the image. (I have been in the RGB mode).

    The only possible cause of the problem (that I can think of) is that I have been using InDesign recently, and perhaps (in InDesign) I have changed the color mode in repsonse to a dialogue box.

    I'm perplexed and anxious-- I need my Type Tool to work!.

    Suggestions deeply appreciated.

    I’ve never had InDesign mess with my PS settings.

    In the toolbar are the little boxes arranged with the black box upper left and the white box lower right? Or is the type color you have selected in the upper left box. If the white is in the upper left you print white. The two tiny boxes below and to the left will switch it back if you just want black and white. The double arrows above and to the right will swap the background and foreground.

    I hope it is as simple as that.

    Are these PSD files or jpg's? You can only change text in an image if the file is a PSD with the text as a layer and if you have not ratsterized the particular layer.
