I made a graffiti poster in Photoshop can I open it in silhouette and have all the words the correct size? Does this make sense, I organized everything how I wanted it in photoshop so I was hoping when I opened it it would all be the right size.

If it is not the right size - you can easily re-size it. Most images do open up in the correct size. I have save the image in PSe as a PNG and it opens the correct size in Studio.

You will need to trace it. It will not have cut lines on it. Select your trace area, then uncheck High Pass Filter and adjust the threshold so your text is all yellow and select "TRACE".

When you go to open your file from Photoshop, be sure to select the file type that you are wanting to open. It defaults to .studio. Change it to what you saved it in PS (JPG or PNG)

I design in Photoshop all the time and then import to Silhouette to cut. I do the exact instructions posted above and it works perfectly.
