Natty got a new toy this weekend!
...and now I'm busy making the dreaded switch from PC to Mac. It hasn't been totally impossible so far, but it's some work, I'll tell you. As many of you know, I work from home. I use Microsoft Office for my writing job, and I use Microsoft "Picture It" image editing software (a user-friendly, cheap version of Photoshop) for the majority of my Etsy projects and blog layouts. So while I can download Word and Excel for Mac and be on my merry way, I can't use Picture It anymore (sob!) So, I have to learn Photoshop (dun dun dun). I've fiddled around with it in the past, but I've never had to seriously buckle down and use it to make or fix anything. Dude. It's hard.
This weekend I've been busy trying to teach myself the ropes, looking anywhere on the Web for easy how-to tutorials. Pioneer Woman offers a few goodies, and I've purchased two books to help make the switch as easy as possible (here and here). Oh, and I'm praying to the blog gods for Bri to hurry up and make her way to Atlanta to teach this class -- I've researched similar classes at UGA, and her's is half the price and no doubt way, way better. I would sign up to take her class in a heartbeat.
So, my question to you guys is, where else can I find some helpful information on making the switch? Are there any tutorials out there on the Web about Photoshop + blogging, editing artwork and photographs? Any advice or help would be so, so appreciated!
Thanks, and have a happy Monday! ♥
