Your Pet Peeves

  • # September 19, 2009 at 5:21 pm

    I would like to know some of the pet peeves of some of the users. The two I can think of now come straight outa photoshop.

    1. Sometimes all tools default to the hand tool. The only fix I know is to go to General Preferences and reset all warning dialogues. That seems to fix it.

    2. This

    If you cannot see it, the current Window is stuck BEHIND the application bar. The only fix I know is to temporarily turn off the Application bar to move the Window back down into the viewport. It absolutely pisses me off when I have to mess with the Photoshop layout.

    ^ Affirmative on #2.

    I noticed you use the default screen shot app that comes with Macs. I found a kick ass widget: http://www.apple.com/downloads/dashboar … tplus.html

    Try it out when you get a chance, it’s really convenient and you don’t have to run an app.

    Thanks for the Widget. Much better than Grab.

    One of the things I do to fix #2 is to use the keyboard command… option command zero I think… to zoom the image back to actual size. There is a preference which you can turn on or off that allows to disallows this to affect the window size. If you let it, it will then get that dang top bar out from being hidden.

    Thanks, Chris, absolutely solved my issue. In other news, my Mac Pro comes in Tuesday, so I don’t have to work on this (wretchedly old) PowerMac G4 anymore. :D

    I have one more related to photoshop..
    Its when I crop with all my tab panes closed… after selecting the area with the crop tool I cannot get my task panes visible again cos that time the tab key doesn’t work.. or vise-versa, i.e. the task panes are visible and I want to hide them cos I cant see where my mouse pointer is. Any solution for this? :)

    I might upgrade later, but for now the Quad core more than meets my needs. Besides that, I’m poor and Irish. (not really Irish)

    Lol, am a student and can’t even afford the cheapest mac at the moment, leave alone a mac pro :P :) But you are going to get one so be happy hehe. My target is to get one by the end of next year if my work keeps going well *touches wood*. There is nothing like getting what you want by working hard for it ;) 8-)

    And yeah, quad core is more than enough for any needs at the moment.. Mostly a small server would require a 8 core processor.. right?

    Unless you’re going into multimedia, even a quad-core can be overkill. Photoshop can use those 8 cores, but it can usually do 90% of average work just as fast on a Quad Core, and to a degree, some Dual Cores.

    I say go get a Drobo before you go spring for those extra 4 cores.

    EDIT
    For a small server? A Dual-Core will do just fine. Medium Server, Dual to Quad. Large, Quad. Enterprise, 128 or more please.
