    Specs:
    13" MBP - 2.7 Ghz, Intel Core i7, 8GB RAM.
    Photoshop crop reduced to a dot
    All of a sudden all of the images I crop are reduced to a spec, a dot, a blip on the screen. Why is this? I must've adjusted some size settings, but I don't know which ones.

    try the "tool preferences" ... when you have the crop tool active, there is a width/height/resolution field in the top in the place where you can set the size of a brush/text font and stuff like that ... maybe you only have the size set to something like 1px

    Thanks! But now all my resized images are coming out extremely pixelated. For example:



    How can I fix this?

    how much did you resize it depending on the original image? it will happen when you blow up a very small image, then there's not much you can do

    you could apply a sharpen filter of some kind or noise reduction, but once the image information is gone, all you can do is hide it somehow and make it look smoother or something

    Ok, thanks!

    Second problem I'm suddenly having is this: using Text tool, background suddenly turns pink and I can't create any new layers. Upon exiting Text tool, the text turns into that "Moving Ants" Selection tool. Any idea what this may be?

    you need to first finish your text layer before moving on, you can pres cmd+enter to finish with the text tool, so after typing your text you can then make new layers or move your text around, but you cant type and edit the layer at the same time

    you can pres cmd+d to deselect everything that has a marquee around it (you can still move layers, that's not dependant on marquee selection)

    edit:
    you can actually make new layers while the text tool is active and you are typing, creating a new layer will finish the text layer

    maybe you could specify on your problem?

    Is there just a way to return all PS settings to default?

    press cmd+option+shift when you click on the ps.app icon, you will get a window asking to restore back to defaults
