I’m ba-ack! I was MIA the end of last week as I set up my new laptop. I am TICKLED with it, and so thankful to have it!
I am almost completely transferred over from the old laptop. I’m already so amazed how I no longer get “Not responding” messages, how I can unplug it and it doesn’t die within five minutes, and I can run multiple programs at the same time with no lag!
There’s only one bad thing.
My Photoshop program is incompatible.
Talk about a sick feeling the two times I tried to load it without success. I think I even broke out into a cold sweat for awhile. I might have even paced. And whined. Perhaps a tear was shed.
My point is: I love Photoshop and will not use an inferior program.
My problem: I don’t have $600.
My solution: Taking it old school. Saving bartending money, etc. bit by bit until I have the needed amount. Until then, I’ve downloaded a trial version of Lightroom, so I can see if it interests me. It does! I like what it does! I’m just so stinkin’ LOST using it. I miss my Photoshop!!
I have a goal of some day saving up to have both Lightroom and Photoshop CS5. But for now, my focus is on getting the money together for Photoshop. I need it. I want it. I WILL HAVE IT.
But in the mean time, I am totally enjoying my new laptop. I’ll do my page design stuff on my (ugh) old laptop. Perhaps if I uninstall some of my other RAM hogging programs it’ll run a little better. We’ll see. I’ll make it work! I am determined… I’m finally upgrading into this decade of technology!
I have only one word for it:
Of course if anyone ever wanted to just give me a copy of Photoshop and/or Lightroom I wouldn’t decline…
Hey, I had to try!
