This post is not about baking or crafting.

However, this has changed my life, so I must share with the bloggy world.

I sat down at my computer this morning and began editing photos.  As usual, I was agonizing over picking a font.  I’m just the average girl who sees “fonts I love” on pinterest and downloads them all.  Sometimes having a lot of options is a bad thing.  I take forever choosing fonts!

Since I can’t get a feel for how the font will look by these tiny previews, I just highlight and try them all.  Not all, but a lot.    Like the “Doris Day” font below.  How am I supposed to know if I want to try that font?  I try many of them, and other font candidates I skip all together because I just don’t know what they look like.  Well, turns out Doris Day is a darling font (see whaaa? in the picture below).

I don’t know why I haven’t fixed this problem until now.  I didn’t even google it.  I just looked around in photoshop for one minute and found the remedy to my subconscious font irritations.

This window popped up.
The font preview size was at medium.  There are several options, but I changed it to “extra large.”

It’s a MIRACLE!   I can see!  I can see!  My eyes aren’t aging after all!  Well, maybe they are.

But this small change has made my font selection process MUCH faster.  I don’t have to try them all because I get a better feel if it’s what I’m looking for from the larger preview.

To smart people, this post must seem ridiculously elementary.
And to non-bloggers, this post is snooze-worthy.

But I thought it might help/change your life if you are like me…

If this helps one person, I am satisfied with my day.  Have a good one!
