i'm learning a lot about photography with this whole photoshop immersion thing. like, for example, there are some pictures that can't be saved. you either enjoy them as they are or delete them. and when spring hits and i'm outside again, i plan to take a million pictures. and i plan to go places this year. to the strip to tour the casinos, and then to other places around town. we will get more financially stable as the year progresses, so i can eventually start going to the museums and stuff that has an entry fee. like the Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay.
i've been comparing Photoshop 7 with Photoshop CS6. there are some simple and really helpful things that 7 does that CS6, the new and improved one, doesn't. and a couple of them were things i used all the time. like the ability to drag a file from windows explorer directly into Photoshop, instead of having to always use the File menu. and when you have an image copied to the clipboard, if you open a new document in 7, it will automatically be the same dimensions as the image on your clipboard. these are two important things to me.
okay, you want to know what REALLY bugs me? almost every article i read, in Buzz Feed, Salon, NYT, i find typos. words left out, words switched around. do none of these places have competent copy readers? it is really annoying to be sailing along through some article and have a word be missing. it completely trips me up, i hate it. blargh. and these places are online, it's not like they are in print. they can go in and change things and correct them and it never seems to happen. okay, enough of that pet peeve.
