PS Elements problem with layers

  sheila.weston 14:20 17 Nov 2008

I want to create a new banner from one in Front page to my new site in Expression Web.

I have opened the FP-theme banner (a *gif file) in PS Elements and want to add some text to it. However, when I select TXT in PS Elements and try to type, the text is white and I cannot make it change colour to black. I notice that the background layer is locked and I cannot a create a new layer, either.

Any ideas?

Go to Image > Mode > RGB color. You should be able to create a new layer now.

Many thanks, Maj. I thought I had replied to this and marked it 'resolved', but apparently not. it is easy when you know how!
