Who here's worked with it for some time now? I'm about to get a new laptop and it pretty much has to be Windows 8 else I'm gonna start having problems again a lot sooner. I've seen the ups at the store where the guy demo'd some stuff for me, but obviously a salesperson won't show the drawbacks. For instance, I saw in the wikihow page that you have to run it in "windowed" mode in order to have multiple applications running simultaneously. What does "windowed" even mean? What's the lightest-weight, shortest-to-load program to view images in, preferably one that will allow me to page through a series of images without closing and reopening the program? If I want to disable the touchpad to wipe off the screen or something, is there a setting control that will let me turn it off momentarily and then turn it back on without, say, rebooting?
...Tell me. What am I in for?

Update: because Adobe has adopted an obnoxious subscription service model that could end up costing me 4 times what I paid for my past version of Photoshop if I get the same number of years out of it, I also want to know how easily I could potentially switch from Photoshop to SAI. Can anyone name specific drawing, painting, and/or editing features of Photoshop (as of the CS4 edition) that don't exist in SAI? Am I going to be missing maybe a clone stamp or some equivalent of a pen tool?

I've always loved art. I spent my middle school & high school career in magnet schools for the arts. In high school I majored in printmaking & art history.
But I've also always loved science, & late in high school I realized that science is more lucrative & maintains its novelty longer. In particular, I find studying physics of space (i.e. astrophysics) an immensely spiritual experience, to the extent that one can be spiritual as a secular humanist. So that's what I'm pursuing my PhD in. Yep, I'm learning how to take the universe apart & bend it to my will. :evillaugh:
Art is still an integral part of my life. It's just not for a grade anymore :meow:.

:star:Note: if you want to color my line art, please PM me for permission (I have never refused—ask and ye shall receive the full-size line drawing), and when you're ready to post, be sure to include both my name and a link to my original line drawing in the description. If I have given you the lines to color, I will check in after a certain amount of time to ensure, if the work has been colored and posted, that my policy has been followed.

it looks like you are an astronomer after all, i'm sorry usually when i see somebody say they have a PHd its hard to believe because its people on the internet. usually i think they are posers, but youre obviously a real astronomer. before you shut me away like so many others you must have an open mind to other's theories. you may never know what you might discover from talking with other people about the universe. all people look to the sky and wonder what's out there. they wonder if there are other races, they have yet to find out this answer. :) (Smile) :( (Sad)

Understandable. I try to have an open mind, but at the same time, I need evidence. For instance, for issues and observations dealing with 3-body problems in planetary systems, I can refer you to chapter 2 of Planetary Sciences by de Pater and Lissauer, as well as lecture notes by Philip j. Armitage, arxiv.org/pdf/astro-ph/0701485… A theory, in the scientific sense, is the most complete and well-supported description of reality that we have; it's the closest thing to "fact" science can offer. While they are subject to change, it does a tremendous disservice to the term when people without the proper credentials refer to their own works in progress as theories (actually, a good scientist should never refer to their own work as a theory), and when the public defines "theory" as a "best guess." I think it's highly improbable, if not impossible, that we are the only life in the galaxy, but if all anyone can show me to the contrary is blurry photos that could've easily been manipulated, or the nighttime recollections of backwoods farmers, I can't give these supposed sightings any credence.

well if we ever stumbled by each other in person i could show you the proof, its physical proof but i'm not allowed to say it or post it on the internet. but take this message from me and give it to humanity nothing is impossible. i know for a fact there is other life in the universe, but i wish so badly to tell you how i know, but my mother has restricted what i'm allowed to say to strangers sorry. i really wish i could. i'm really sorry about the whole argument with the other guy on here. and i'm sorry that i cannot tell you my secret either but if we could be friends on skype maybe we could talk there where its private. if you wanted to be friends with me i'd love that. the more friends the better.:) (Smile)

I don't have a skype. Or a FB, or AIM. I'm not really into the whole social network scene. This site & one other is pretty much the extent of my social network online.
