PS 7 Newbie: Can show text frames? Link text frames?
Posted on 2006-03-24
I am examining using PhotoShop.
I have to produce an occasional newsletter (i.e., mainly text - lot's of it) for a charity cause.
1. Can I keep the all the text frames showing (i.e., the rectangular border the text), i.e., not just when a specific text block is selected?
2. Can I link text blocks so that text flows from one block to "the next" so I can position the text around pictures?
I have Corel Draw 9, but it crashes a lot, and anyway it's not what they use in the print shops in my country.
The print shops in my country use Photoshop (for photo editing) and Freehand (for texting, page layout, etc., i.e., for everything else to get the job done). I would like to get Freehand but the charitable cause has no budget ('cos it's a charitable cause...), but they have Photoshop 7 for me to use. So that's what there is.
I must admit, the memory handling is much better than I thought it would be. In Jasc Paint Shop Pro, if you set an A4 page @ 600dpi, it would actually hold all that in memory and bring the PC to its knees every time you tried to move a largish pic. I had ignored Adobe photoshop for so long because I thought that's the way they all work...)
