The above is not what I typically do with Photoshop, but I played around with some different things while contemplating a life without Adobe Photoshop. I could never have believed a life without Photoshop before breakfast or after, but I have to start thinking about it now. I have been an Adobe Photoshop user since before CS--sometime in the late 90's. I currently own CS5 which is running on my old MacbookPro mid-2009. The latest Apple operating systems are not compatible with my old machine. I say old, but it doesn't feel old at all to me. It's a gem. I've decided to keep this machine as my dark/light room, but keep it offline. When the time seems right, I will buy a new Mac, but my Photoshop CS5 will not work on it. As many of you know, Adobe Photoshop is not for sale--only lease at $9.99 a month last time I checked. That's why I'm keeping my current machine for darkroom use. But there might be hope for my future computer. I was looking at some photography related things on YouTube yesterday and learned about Affinity Photo editor. It seems it does everything I need and more, and at a very affordable price. As rainy days come along, I will have time to look at some of the tutorials. Really hoping this works out for me. If you have any knowledge of Affinity vs. Photoshop and care to leave a comment on your experience, that would be much appreciated.
Here are two more photos from the nearby countryside:
And here a line drawing done with Photoshop of the field above. What a surprise. It's a tool I rarely use.
Bye for now!
