Adendum Posted April 7, 2013 Share Posted April 7, 2013 Hi people, I suspect I am going to need some help along the way, so a quick introduction, a plea for mercy and maybe a request now for some advice.... OK, I'm a long term Photoshop 7 user...until today. I refused to upgrade from PS7 because it did everything I needed it to do and it's pretty much been the mainstay of all my graphics needs (I'm a web developer). I've used it since 2003, so that's 10 years of intimate use and 10 years of PSD files. So you might guess I'm just a tad nervous! This weekend I had to buy a new PC, pre-installed with Windows 8. So everything is up and running, all data is in place and PS7 doesn't work. I managed to get past the scratch disk problem for disks over 1Tbbut any PSD file I open cannot be saved and any new file can't be saved as a PSD file. So I followed some of the advice I have given clients over the years and installed Paint.NET - plus the PSD plugin!! So that's where I am at right now - zero experience of Paint.NET but will play with it over the next few days. So a final hello from me and hoping to receive plenty of advice and suggestions from other ex-Photoshop users that could cut short my learning curve.
