C in CS3

It's been about ten years since I abandoned Photoshop and took up with oils, but this evening C came home with a gift: CS3! The all new super delux Creative Suite package of Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, InDesign, Flash, and a whole mess of other stuff that I can't even begin to identify.

Opening up Photoshop was like coming home to the house you grew up in. But it's been renovated and upgraded. Some of the mechanics are the same, but there will be mucho to learn. It is only fitting that I should throw together a quick homage to the boy (wearing a t-shirt of his own design). Clicking it will make it huge and will probably disclose the rough edges of a quick job, but oh is it fun to be back in this saddle.

Everything that I can think of to say is totally appropriate. I'm not supposed to know how to appreciate your photograph.

But I do. Get arrested!

How joyous that after so many years he still comes home with a surprise gift for you! This speaks fathoms about not just him, but you as well. (I wish I may, I wish I might ... have the wish ... :) )

I'm looking forward to seeing your posts of some of the results.

"Clicking it will make it huge."

Click. Click. Click. Click. Click...

It's like an adult etch a sketch. Spouse adores his photoshop et al.

I would love to get CS3, though I think it's going to be a while even with the educational discount. (One of the perks of my job) Enjoy yourself. I understand that Illustrator has been really snazzed up as well. I will be looking forward with great anticipation to see what you will be treating your readers to with your new tool/toy.
