    Tool change mystery

    I know what a Wacom tablet is, Sam, I just have a habit of calling them a tablet. Sorry. I turn my computer off at night so it's been restarted with no effect on the problem. I just tried resetting Ps's prefs. No help there either.

    Tool change mystery

    No, I'm using Mojave - 10.14.3, Sam. Using a computer, not a tablet.

    Tool change mystery

    I was using the sharpening tool. Just checked. It's not the caps lock.

    Tool change mystery

    Hey Sam, Just checked. My tool preference looks just like your sample, "Normal Brush Tip" so that's not it.

    Tool change mystery

    I was just working on an image in Ps and the tool I was using changed to a small plus sign. Then I noticed all my tools now look like a plus sign. What did I accidentally do and how do I correct it? Thanks

    Something has "control" of my dessktop

    Hey Sam, I'm running Mojave 10.14.3. I'll try your suggestion. UPDATE: You found the problem. When I right clicked on the desktop there was an option checked called "snap to grid." I have no clue how it got checked in the middle of me working on some Ps images but I just unchecked it and...

    Something has "control" of my dessktop

    I have both Mac and Norton firewalls on my machine. I'd be really surprised if someone hacked into my computer. I think I accidentally triggered some setting that automatically puts all desktop items along one side of the screen. I just don't know how to turn it off.

    Something has "control" of my dessktop

    This may be a topic for a Mac computer forum but I'll ask just in case. I was just working in Ps and all of a sudden all my open images and folders just snapped to the right side of the monitor. When I try and move them they just snap back to the right border. I can't find what just happened so...

    Image size help needed

    I'm a little embarrassed here as this was so simple to do and I didn't figure it out for myself. I ended up just dividing 3040 X 1440 by 2 which gave me 1520 X 720 and made an image using that size. Didn't lose any quality (at least none I could see on my phone) so all is good. Do have a problem...

    Oh, forgot. I also have almost 5000 songs that take up a lot of space. : )

    Image size help needed

    Thanks, Aakshat. : ) I'm concerned about space because I have 425 images that change every 15 minutes using an automatic wallpaper changer I got on Google Play.

    Image size help needed

    Thanks. I'll try that tomorrow and let you know how it goes. I'm self-taught in all my PS skills and image sizing and ppi has always been a roadblock for me. Thank god for Youtube. : )

    Image size help needed

    Oh, I see what you're getting at, Sam. Now I'm more confused, though (easy to do at my age, 75 - lol). I have a screen that's 3040 X 1440 with 525ppi. I want to make an image fit those dimensions but not make it 3040 X 1440 as it would eat up too much memory. What do I do?

    Image size help needed

    Educate me here. Why would downsizing an image make the quality less? You obviously can't enlarge images too much without losing resolution but I thought downsizing would actually make more Pixels in a smaller area, therefore, the same or better quality. This is where my knowledge of PS is...

    Image size help needed

    Thanks for the great example. If I made my images 760 X 360 (3040X1440 divided by 4) would that make them fit my screen with little to no waste on the top or bottom? I obviously can't download a bunch of images that are 3040X1440. The phone would run out of storage pretty quickly. I'm not...
