I had a heck of a time with my Feline Friday entry this week. I knew exactly what picture I wanted to use, and I had it off the camera and on the laptop in time. My downfall was trying to edit the picture.
I don't know what has gotten into my computer (and if anyone has had the same problem, I would love to know how to fix it). I added a gig of memory last Monday. I had it installed by the techs because I didn't have the proper tools, so I know it was installed correctly. Seems when I start working in Photoshop Elements (both 4 and 2.. I did try both) when I go to do any kind of effect my computer shuts down. I opened up PSP, but couldn't duplicate the problem there, thus my belief it has to do with the Photoshop program. I finally managed to get the picture done by knocking the size down right away and then working on the smaller file. I plan to experiment more tomorrow and see if I can figure out what exactly is causing the problem. Suffice it to say I was very frustrated! Before I call and whine to the tech, I am going to uninstall and reinstall the Photoshop Elements files and see if that fixes it.... GRRRRRRR!
On the bright side, I've been very pleased with the increase of speed on my computer for everything else. I went from .5GB to 1.5GB
