Okay...either I'm tired, have preggo brain, or there's something I'm just being clueless about. All are realistic possibilities lol!

1) I'm trying to add a drop shadow to a picture (in a siggy I'm trying to make). It worked fine on 2 pics but on the 3rd pic it places the drop shadow WAY WAY below the picture. How do I get it to go where it belongs?

2) I can't seem to make a font smaller than 6 point, which is huge on my siggy. So is my siggy too small (I did 600x400) or is there a way to make the font smaller?

I hope that makes sense. Clearly I need to go to bed, but this is making me crazy!

THANK YOU!!!!

I dont have a clue about the drop shadow Hope someone else does.

As for the text if you make your resolution 72 you should be ok 6 pt shouldnt be huge if your res is 72. Hope that helps a little.

when you add the shadow to the layer a little icon will show on the right side of that layer in the layer palate. Double click that tiny icon and it'll let you adjust the amount of shadow, bevel, glow, and stroke

It sounds like you have your dpi set at 300. When you go to create a new workspace (or start a new siggy) there should be a drop down thingy you can pick from when you set the canvas size, select web (640x480) its automatically set at 72 dpi (web quality) and that should help.
