The bright memories of our past is getting a little fuzzy, so I’m very glad I have photographs. It may be the best of the best things we get from our pictures, that very local history of our world, our family, friends, neighborhoods.
My son bought be an annual birthday present: Photoshop and Lightroom. I’m going to have to spend some time figuring out how they work and making sure I set it up the way I want it.
We suffer from a very erratic, underperforming and overpriced ISP. One of the main reasons I have resisted moving to a cloud based system — the new PS and LR — is because I want to be able to access photographs even if we don’t have a good connection — or no connection.
It’s the same reason I still buy CDs and DVDs. I want to own my own software and media. I want to own things that are important to me. I really hoped Photoshop would go back to producing some version of itself that comes on a disc, but obviously that’s not happening.
Still, I’m going to need some time to figure this out and I’m not as enthusiastic about it as I probably ought to be.
