I am not sure what botton I pressed wrong but whenever I try to type with text box the whole screen turns red and when finish typing the text doesn't actually show on the image. All I want is to put words on the image.
I assume that's ONLY happening in Photoshop? If so, please go to Edit>Preferences>Performance and turn off use GPU.
Thanks for reaching out.
Which version of Photoshop and Windows are you using? Can you please share a video of what you see? Have you tried any troubleshooting steps?
You can try to reset the preferences of Photoshop using the steps mentioned here: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/preferences.html#reset_preferences.
Please back up your settings prior to resetting the preferences.
Let us know how it goes.
Most likely you inadvertently selected one of the Type Mask Tools, which leaves a selection after typing instead of the actual text.
Left click and hold the T in the Tools Panel and select the Horizontal Type Tool to see actual text when typing.
Another possibility, if you have right tool selected (Horizontal Type Tool) is that you turned Quick Mask mode. In that case you will also see red overlay on your screen. However, after typing your text you should see it with marching ants around text.
yes that is exactly what happened, the screen turns red and then marching ants around ants, how am I able to turn it off and simply type without marching ants?
Hi there, thanks for reaching out. Did you try the suggestions shared by our Community Expert and others?
Which version of the application are you using?
Is your GPU software properly updated?
I had something similar while using an external monitor. It fixed itself once I updated everything again
