Text issue

Okay, this may be a stupid question but I just can't figure out why my graphic is doing this! I am blowing-up photos to use in our store and want to put single word titles across them. For some reason the text gets truncated despite the size of the bounding box.

I am using Photoshop 6.0, my files are .jpg at 200dpi and are approximately 24x36. I am trying to insert 300-400pt text. Short words work but long ones are truncated. The truncation point is always the same point no matter what word I type.

Thanks for any help on this!

Havn't a clue ... but as a possible work around ... try duplicating the file and flattening to rastorize the text - if the problem is in the conversion of the font-to-print this should work (fingers crossed)

I'm assuming you're making your bounding box as wide as the image itself? How high is the bounding box? Id the problem with displaying on screen or printing? How many letters in are you getting before the text truncates>
