Check the image size, and see what the units are.  What often happens is we forget that size is set to a linear unit like Inches, and we dial in a size thinking it is in pixels.  At 300dpi a 1000 x 1000 image is going to be huge.  If type is set top pixels, then it tends to get lost.

Try a new Type layer, but specify a linear unit by typing in (for inch) or pt or mm.

Alsop look at Preference units. I suspect that Rulers might be in Inches.  I like to to use pixels, but YMMV (it's a while since I last used that  olde worlde internet short hand )
