Although I have an arsenal of User Guides and various Adobe Photoshop Tutorial books, I have no clue what I am doing in Photoshop. Nor does Charlie. We spent almost four hours the other night trying to make "simple" edits to these pictures. In the course of this editing process, we wound up crashing our Macintosh computer.
Based on all the commercials I've seen about Macs, I didn't think that it was possible to crash a system. But apparently it is.
Charlie dropped our computer off yesterday for a little "vacation" after what can only be described as a black screen of death slowly descended across the entire screen with a message that flashed (in several languages) "system failure."
Hopefully, our computer will be restored to working order soon.
Hopefully, the 24,000 pictures that I've taken over the past four and a half years have been backed up properly.
Hopefully, this photo - which was uploaded to Flickr mere seconds before my computer crashed, isn't symbolic in that, I can just kiss my computer and ALL of it's contents good bye.
Hopefully, you'll agree that although my photo editing skills might be a little shoddy, this is quite possibly the cutest picture I've ever posted on my blog.
Last week they were a prince and princess.
Today, they were earthworms crawling around the dirt in the backyard.
Every day, it's something new.
(PS: This update was done on a work computer. But it certainly makes me think that investing in a back up computer for the house isn't a bad idea at all. Good heavens! What if I had NO computer access? Would the world continue to spin on it's axis, or fall straight off?)
