I must be really behind the times on technology. I guess because I've been so comfortable with my outdated gear.
I wanted to get the recent photoshop for my laptop for college because I'll be a brand new art major.
And I was willing to pay and I was excited to learn my way around the new layout and tools.
Thought it use to be *raspy voice* back in my day...
That you could just buy the program and your done. Viola!
Nope adobe wants you to pay by the month or year now and it's hecka more expensive which is just grand~
I'm a new college kid looking for a job and my parents aren't made of money this is going to be a pain.
But whatever! I have art to get done and get out to people so I might as well just get the trial for now right? RIGHT?
so I download it as well as some other cool programs and I get situated to do some hard work.
Then I realize my laptop doesn't have a place for disks.
I guess this is the thing now sense everything is now digital downloads and apple really wants you to stick to buying from their stores and this is a clever way of doing so.
But this means I can't install my tablet driver.
WHICH MEANS NO PEN PRESSURE.
I LIVE OFF OF MY PEN PRESSURE WHAT DO.
So I use the trusty google and low and behold Wacom has drivers available for download.
I was singing praises and downloaded the one under bamboo tablet.
Realized I have to get the one under bamboo fun tablet.
Sees the tiny print, "older products may not be compatible with recent operating systems".
Pretty sure my table was made in the EARLY 2000s. www.newegg.com/Product/Product…
And I'm pretty sure my macbook pro was made this year......
So I need a new tablet! On top of the photoshop conundrum!
The cheapest one is $100 and I don't know if I'll get it before my trial ends~ Fun~
For now I'll probably have to get out my old super heavy laptop and work on that >.>;; oh well i guess but this is really disappointing.
I'm taking commissions still if you feel like helping me out. XD I'll just be doing them on my Dell Precision M6300 and in Photoshop Elements 6.0. Unless it is traditional then it can be in various mediums (ex: pencil, ink, watercolor, acrylic, black or white paper, crayons, .etc)
Here is is if you're interested!
Best of Wishes,
