So it turns out installing OS 10.10 Yosemite was a bad idea. As I said on Facebook, it feels like someone walked into my office, took away my pen and said I couldn’t use it anymore unless I bought the more expensive version.
“But it’s a perfectly good pen.” I would say “It’s still half full of ink and I was in the middle of using it!”
“Too bad!” they would say “This one’s better, and you haven’t bought a pen in a few months.”
“I don’t have time in my life to write any more than I already do.”
“Then you should stop sleeping. We need the money.”
“But I was saving that money to buy a pencil.”
On the suggestion of my friends Scott and Tucker I downloaded some image editing software that — dare I say it — wasn’t PhotoShop. So I can now post an image of the painting I sold at a group show that I couldn’t post on the proud day I sold it
Ha! Take that Adobe and Apple!
Don’t get me wrong PhotoShop is still my favorite video game but affording to pay for it every month presents challenges that I haven’t come to terms with yet. Eventually I’ll probably join the Adobe Club as I still have access to the software, just not on the machine I blog from. For now GIMP will have to do.
Now I just have to edit the photos I took painting the picture above so I can create a post on that.
