to just open / just to open , pardon me
ledirlo   @ 10:09 am (30 Jan 23)
I'd reinstall photoshop or/AND the OS if it happened again

do a virus check if ever that was a corrupt jpeg you have opened in PS for instance

one Day, a couple years after my imac had become so slow and unresponsive it had become unuseable (imac 2017), chrome or PS took about 3 minutes each to just open, crashing the whole OS,I had no choice but to format my HD and to reinstall the OS and I was then able to use it normally, although it still was slow.

So I bought a samsung external SSD drive (T7:about 100$), and used it as my main drive, installing my OS and programs on it, forgetting the original internal drive, and my computer got kindda fast...like I had bought a 2021-22 new imac I guess.

no.

you need to purge all caches from the PS menu edit / purge

maybe you'll need to reinstall ps and it will do


Thanks for the suggestion. I did the purge and we'll see if the problem comes back

Sorry folks, I just figured it out
wedoo2   @ 1:09 pm (20 Jan 23)
I bought a new computer. On the old computer I used the mouse wheel to zoom in and out. The new install is working differently and the scroll wheel just moves the image up and down. Can I change that?

Rabbit soup???
ledirlo   @ 5:21 pm (17 Jan 23)

Jaurah04   @ 7:13 pm (05 Jan 23)
Damn.
genesis2   @ 2:13 pm (05 Jan 23)
Yes
Jaurah04   @ 8:34 pm (03 Jan 23)
For paid contests, is it normal to see how many votes your own post got?
Jaurah04   @ 3:00 pm (03 Jan 23)
warped wood had some incredible entries
ledirlo   @ 5:58 pm (01 Jan 23)

First make sure your updated version is no greater than 1280x960 and under 512kb. After the update refresh using (ctrl + F5 ) and Wahla! Happy Chop'n!

Most of the time it works, but you might not see the difference unless you view large. Sometimes it takes a while. Happy new year!

ledirlo   @ 5:44 pm (31 Dec 22)
yeah, happy new year Pscers

with a thought not to the forgotten - who don't even say hi here anymore - but to the ones who died since I found this in 2001, and to us
genesis2   @ 4:48 pm (31 Dec 22)
Go for it, Happy New Year to you and everyone else on PSC. :psc:
Jaurah04   @ 4:00 am (31 Dec 22)
Just got it! Man this is great. I don't know if I'll be able to beat you genesis but I will put up a good contest! Very Happy
Jaurah04   @ 2:49 am (31 Dec 22)
Will definitely consider getting Advantage, thank you!
genesis2   @ 10:24 pm (30 Dec 22)
One big tip, watch your proportions, light and shadows, perspective, color integration, etc etc. most of all keep away from the obvious, and be "Creative". I need a drink now, good luck.
genesis2   @ 10:20 pm (30 Dec 22)
Advantage is not that expensive, and it gives you what images are coming up for a month, well worth it especially for the prize contests, but I shouldn't tell you that, I don't need the competition.
genesis2   @ 9:57 pm (30 Dec 22)
as far as tips or tricks, come up with a great idea and spend as much time as needed to make it great. then when you're done, think of a way to make it even better. Stay away from the typical "cut and paste"
genesis2   @ 9:54 pm (30 Dec 22)
to go with a 1280X960 you have to pay for "advantage"
Jaurah04   @ 6:44 pm (30 Dec 22)
genesis2 said: Thanks Jaurah, I work hard at it.
do you have any tips or tricks? Very Happy how do I upload higher res submissions?
ledirlo   @ 8:55 am (30 Dec 22)
thx db, good to see you have survived the texan/east coast/winter weather madness
genesis2   @ 12:40 am (30 Dec 22)
Thanks Jaurah, I work hard at it.
Jaurah04   @ 7:40 pm (29 Dec 22)

what time do contests end-start please it seems it has changed it used to be 8am NYC time and 2:PM France ?
wedoo2   @ 1:36 pm (24 Dec 22)
It seems that my advantage is set up but I am unable to use it. Still downloading the lower resolution sources, unable to see future contests (not so much an issue for me) or submit a contest entry. Any suggestions. This has been a bit of a bugger.
MsgtBob   @ 4:11 pm (18 Dec 22)
To contact admin, try going to rajan's Profile and then use the private message button.

I am trying to sign up for Advantage but with either PayPal or my credit card I get an error saying that I don't exist. Any suggestions?
