I'm a single mom with two great kids living near Dallas, Texas. This is my life; day to day things that are probably only important to me. This is my record of my ups, my downs and the road that I've taken along the way. For whatever reason YOU'RE here, I hope you find something you can enjoy and/or relate to. God bless.

I Hate Photoshop

I'm in no mood to blog. I got my Photoshop the other day in the mail and have been in nothing but a pissy mood since. Unlike Hizzle, I suck at this. The first day I got it, I transferred all my pictures from my files to Photoshop, and they disappeared. I had to find them individually on my hard drive and transfer them to Photoshop, by looking for 'pictures' which brought me up 14,832 pictures (everything that had ever crossed my computer) to sift through. Right now, even the simplest thing is giving me problems. Hell, it's 1:32 a.m. and I'm still trying. Anyway, if you don't see me for a couple weeks, that's why. Suicide by way of Photoshop.

It's as good a way to go as any, I guess.

Homicide by photoshop sounds better. I have a long list of people that have transgressed against me....does that help?

UGGG! New computer programs suck until you get used to their nuances and quirks! Good luck to you!

kevin ~ no, really, don't worry about me. LOL.

casually me ~ no sweetie, why would that help? I don't want people to be anything but kind to you. I'm killing myself here with photoshop...that's suicide. Though, I've figured some things out a bit.

Photoshop does rock (eventually) but it has the worst, least user friendly interface I've seen in 21 years of computer use. I hope that some consolation. An engineer I know was so pissed off about it, he hacked the license protection and was giving it away to people for free.

I convinced him that grand larceny is probably not a good idea.

I do not own photoshop and if I want anything done, I have to ask Furzl which is highly frustrating as he doesn't regard my picture as priority.. but reading this - maybe it is not such a bad arrangment after all.

Sorry you're having problems but don't disappear just because of this. I am sure it will get straightened up. Visit my latest blog post. I would love it if you voted for me! Stacy

When you're in Photoshop, hit "f1" - it'll bring up a menu. At the bottom is a link for the tutorials.

sable ~ I need an in person tutorial, I'm afraid. Actually, I've done quite a bit, it's the cutting and pasting that's giving me a problem. My husband says it's the computer, because I'm having problems with the d drive, and some of the downloads may not have taken...so taking the puter in for work.

I use Photoshop, but I think it mostly sucks.

awww kathi .. i'm sorry to hear this. What do you mean when you say, I transfered my files to photoshop? You can't do that .. you use photoshop only to OPEN a picture (you specify the location of the picture in the open dialogue box)

You mentioned the D Drive .. is that your CD drive? Whenever you plan to work with a picture .. please copy them to your local hardrive and then open 'em and edit them. makes things alot simpler.

it's funny that the post before this was titled, "It's All Good" :) .. things change quickly haan!

Thanks for such nice comments about my blog. I'm flattered and am soooooo glad that I actually (indirectly) help your students .. that's just sooo nice to know. How old are your students? If kids .. u know what .. i dunno .. i shouldn't ask but .. it will be SOOOO NICEEEE (if they are like 2nd grade or something) to get a hand made drawing from them (I understand that these grades have lot of drawing activities)

sable ~ yup, I liked my other two programs MUCH better...so far.

Nabeel ~ I'm so glad my pity party amuses you. :)
Nope, sorry...I teach high school level (grades 9 - 12). But if you want, I'll ask them to draw something cute for you anyway, lol. :)

I just let me wife take care of stuff if Photoshop has to get involved....its way to time consuming for me to get involved with it. Good Luck.

I'm sorry you're having some much trouble. I haven't ever tried to use Photoshop...but I hope it's nicer to me if I do :) I'm sure you'll figure it out soon enough.

photoshop is REALLY easy. all you have to do is remember KEEP IT SIMPLE.
you dont need half the stuff they offer.
i use it all the time. and its TOTALLY GREAT!!!!
it does everything . all one has to do is just try and understand the " language" it uses.
just KEEP YOUR REQUESTS SIMPLE and it will do EVERYTHING for you .

Kathi, I bought photoshop a few months back and I LOVE it. LOVE it. If I can help you, just email me. I'm not perfect at it, but I can probably get you going. You don't want to transfer your photos there. I just left mine alone and open them in photoshop when I want to mess with 'em. Let me know if I can help.

HEY HEY HEY hun, watch it when it comes to Photoshop. Keep those harsh words toned down :)

I use it for my profession and by far it's the best editing software ever. As for just viewing pictures? I'd use any other viewing program on your machine. Much quicker I imagine....

i use a combo of photoshop and paintshop pro...
paint shop pro is a little more user friendly, more push buttony if you know what i mean... but photoshop is more professional and puts out a clearer graphic 99% of the time.

What is it your trying to do? Email me I may be helpful?
