Is there a way to import a text document (no graphics) like from MS Word or Wordperfect into Photoshop so that I could then save it as a jpg?

I am to give a speech in a couple of weeks and the location does not have an LCD projector available. They do have a large screen tv. I could get one of those little jpg viewer boxes which hooks to a tv and if I could import text and save it as jpg, I could then transfer those to my cf cards and use the jpg viewer box as a sort of "slide projector" on tv to go through my presentation.

I realize that I could just tediously type my text using the text function in Photoshop, but since I have what I am wanting to display in Wordperfect form anyway, it would be simpler if I could just figure out a way to import and save as jpg.

I have already considered printing the pages on white paper, shooting them as digital images, like with a copy stand rig, but that seems low tech high tech if you know what I mean. It almost seems backwards too.

If you can create PDF files from your document, Photoshop 7.0 can open/rasterize them- one page at a time.

(On a Mac with OS X, Print -> Save as PDF.)

Hi Mark,

Do you have PageMaker or Illustrator? They are very well integrated with Photoshop and you can do wonders with both programs.

Good day!

Mike

would be to get a small RF modulator from Radio shack. If you have a laptop that has a video out (the little yellow RCA plug) then plug the video line into the RF box and put the TV on channel 3 and tada. Instant slide show.

(a couple of assumptions made here. 1. you have powerpoint 2. you have a laptop)

try this link open office tools and I think that the open office has a powerpoint knock off if you don't have MS Powerpoint. One of my friends uses it all the time for powerpoint,(MS powerpoint reads open office pp the same) but I never have tried.

1) If using a Mac, you can press command(apple/fan key)-shift-3 and perform a screen capture. The picture will appear on your system drive in OS9 or earlier, and on your desktop in OSX. It will be a PICT or a PDF, but you can import it into Photoshop either way if you have a recent version. If you get the page in page view mode you might get it all in one shot, otherwise take multiple shots and tile them.

2) Sometimes you can use the "Print Screen" key (upper right area of keyboard) to do the same thing on a PC, but I don't know how that works. They also make screen capture programs for PC's, but I likewise don't know anything about them.

3) If you're really feeling adventurous and you have a PostScript printer driver installed, you can try selecting it as the default, printing to file instead of printing to printer, and then opening the resultant PS file in Photoshop (which I think will open it) or finding some shareware program that will convert it to a Photoshop-readable format. I did this once many moons ago, but I forget how I did it.

4) You can copy and paste from a word processor to Photoshop's text editor. You'll lose all your formatting, but at least you won't have to type it in again if you decide to just do it manually.

5) It would be way easier to print the pages and scan them then try to use a copy stand on them in my opinion - but of course you need a scanner for that. *smile*

on a pc,

bring up the document within your processor and make sure that window session has the 'focus'. use the following combination of key strokes: alt + print screen.

you should now have a screen capture of such window seesion within your clipboard.

within ps click new, then paste the contents of your clipboard onto it. depending on the amount of lines, this may not be very useful to you.

hope this helped,
rick
