MAC Syndrome

I did it. I finally converted. I'm now a MAC designer.
(insert applause here)

After years of struggling -unwittingly- with low memory and immense frustration, Andrew finally made me see the light. It's amazing how time flies. I had the old Dell for 4 years and I thought I was fine with it. Sure, in the beginning, but after struggling with huge files and several windows of wait time to complete any task, I'd soon lose my interest and wander about my studio, working on other projects. Ugh!

My first small project was inserting our iSight capture into the screen of this MAC image within Photoshop. Needless to say, I had to purchase another Wacom tablet straight away so that design won't feel painfully awkward with the mouse -feels like working with a bar of soap. One can see that the light used with iSight overexposed our faces and I really didn't feel like correcting the skin tones -ala bar of soap.

Woo-hoo! This baby is gorgeous!

oh my gosh, you are going to find all the millions of reasons why the mac is the best invention for artist on the planet! I still only do my work on the macbook pro, but it's like 4 times more powerful than my pc ever was. I'm getting an iMac soon enough. Congrats!!!

Congrats! Seems like most artists like the Mac. I actually like the look of the photo with no futzing. Really shows up and you two---make that three--look fantastic!
