First, I haven't read any threads here all day. Sorry about that. Will read them once I work through the madness I'm about to share ...
So I've been working for the last 90 minutes on a layout using Elements. Elements has crashed on me THREE TIMES. I keep saving my work, and so I haven't lost much more than my time. But I can't do it any longer. I need to go to my crop corner in the basement and do the layout with Picture It (it's on my laptop down there, which I can't move since the battery is dead, so all of my digi scrapping must be done in the same corner as my paper scrapping ).
I had even done my own torn edges on one of the papers. I'm sad that I can't finish the layout. Maybe when I'm ready to start Elements again, I'll save what I've done so far as a jpg just so I can show off my edges. But Picture It lets me do more, at least, I know how to do more with it (if that makes sense).
I am not reading any threads here until I get this layout done. I've lost too much time. But my goal is to complete the layout AND post here in the next 75 minutes. I do have performance issues on the laptop as it's about a million years old, so it will take me a little longer. But I already know what I'm doing since I started it on this computer. It's a shame I can't open my PSD file and pick up where I left off. Picture It doesn't open the layers of a PSD file. Ugh.
Anyhow, just needed to vent. I was so optimistic with Elements. It's not just the software, it's this computer too. I need more power!
