I have Photoshop Elements 8 to work on my photographs. I do find that the graphics are very small and being on a black background they are hard to see with my old eyes. Does anyone know of a way to increase the graphics size or make the background a different colour.

Hi Tesea. If you have a mouse with a little wheel between the left and riight buttons, hold down the ctrl button on your keypad and turn the wheel on the mouse - one way increases the size of everything on your screen, the other decreases it.
If you don't have a wheel on your mouse hold down the ctrl button on your keypad and hit the + button a few times. To reduce the graphics size use the - button with ctrl.
Have fun! smile

Bikergran - look at the bottom right of this page for instructions to add a link to a post. You need to copy the link, paste it into your message, then surround it with double square brackets.

MagieJ, Thank you so much for that tip.
I have been so fed up of squinting at the screen and this is a great way of magnifying.

When you're on Gransnet, you can also click on the large 'T' button at the top of all the pages and the text will get bigger. Personally, I prefer the ctrl and + option, though.

Surely it's time for a brew?

Oh, how funny.

They've thought of everything. hmm
