the boobs were funny, but…

I like the “You know you’re addicted to when” stuff better, so

You Know You’re Addicted to Photoshop When…
You see the world with one eye and stock images with the other.

When asked what the primary colors are, answer “RGB”

You get the urge to ‘fix’ poor quality images.

You start teaching your significant other to use this “evil” program and in the space of one afternoon convince them it’s at least only quasi-evil in the face of PSP.

You ramble about a breakthrough in the piece you’re doing to people who have no idea in hell what you’re talking about

You ponder the meaning of existence without layers. (Don’t laugh, JT! I did just last weekend nearly cry when all that was installed on mom’s machine was Paint, and the lack of layers was causing me trauma.)

You never leave the house without a digicam and notepad.

You drop something and your brain tells you automatically “Ctrl-Z! Ctrl-Z!”. When you realize it won’t work, your brain tells you “Ctrl-Alt-Z! Ctrl-Alt-Z!”

You’re getting dressed for something important and you look in the mirror and realize you would look so much better if you could just tweak the levels a little and apply a slight gaussian blur.

You stop on the street to rant about cheesey effects that should not be on professional posters.

You scream out fonts as they appear on TV.

You have dreams in “glowing edges”

You’re standing by the ocean and wondering who used Ocean Ripple.

You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends who are addicted to Photoshop.

Have to say, I expected to have more in common with the “Addicted to Harry Potter” one, but only matched up to “Have read the books more than four times.”

    i don’t understand layers. i so wish i did, because from the sound of it it’s something amazingly useful, but never can figure it out. all i do with photoshop is resize pictures so i can use them as icons.

    they are so amazingly useful that once you figure it out, you’ll wonder how you ever did without them. It’s sort of like if you were working with a bunch of items printed out, that you had cutout and were trying to arrange to your satisfaction. Almost like.. paperdolls.. You have a background, then you have all the items you can move around on the background, you can put things in front of or behind other things, then change your mind later and move them some more. you dont lose info just because you only see part of an image at a time… if you want to see a different part of the image, it’s still there. make any sense?
