What happens when you click inside the box containing the text "Type text here" ?

That text should disappear, leaving you with a flashing cursor which you can then type into.

Hey FXhomer87395,

I also run Photokey on my Macbook Pro running Snow Leopard, but I have not been able to replicate your issue.

Though they seem obvious, one of basic troubleshooting steps below may fix your issue.
  • Restart your computer
  • Repairing permissions (click here for more info)
  • Reinstalling PhotoKey

If none of that works, it may be helpful to take a short video of what exactly happens when you go to type text. In Quicktime X, just go to File>New Screen Recording, and use Imageshack or YouTube to host the resulting video online.
