Just a quick shout out to Adobe this morning, as I only have 12 days left on my free trial of Photoshop.
That was clever.
Here was my plan: download free trial of PS4, take PS course, apply knowledge to the GIMP and edit for free.
Here's what really happened: downloaded free trial of PS4, started taking PS course, fell in love with PS. I was dazed and confused by the GIMP before and now I'm annoyed and frustrated by it. My desire is to shun it evermore.
That's right GIMP, you may be free but YOU DON'T MAKE ANY SENSE!
Furthermore? I'm so completely addicted to Photoshop actions I'm going to need a 12-step program. I'm not even kidding.
Oh sure, GIMP has "scripts" but they're not anywhere near as delicious as actions. You want to take away my heroin and give me tylenol and tell me it's the same thing? MOM-MY!
So good job Adobe. Nice "free" trial. Way to sucker me in. Now how the heck am I supposed to afford you?
