If you like Carpel Tunnel Syndrome, you will LOVE Photoshop

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by too_many_mouse_clicks, Sep 16, 2003.

  1. Hi,

    For something as simple as changing the lighting exposure, there are 5
    separate mouse clicks or movements you must do in Photoshop. Nice,
    especially in a day and age where every single click and move adds to
    the wear and tear on human hands.

    In Paint Shop Pro, almost everything has a keyboard shortcut: In the
    case of light levels...shift b...BAM! you are there.

    I can work like lightening in PSP...so few mouse clicks...so many nice

    A lot of people like treasure hunts, easter egg hunts and so forth...and
    it can be fun to hunt and search for often used commands...but after the
    novelty of tunneling down 5 or more menu pulldowns wears off...so too
    does my appreciation of an app that makes you work hard...literally, to
    get the same thing PSP gives without hurting the hands.

    When I have lots of time and my hands are not hurting...PS is great. But
    when I want to get it done quick, without all the extra clicks...PSP is
    my choice.



    PS. I anticipate that lovers of PS will defend this complaint by doing
    what they always do to complaints against their beloved app - call this
    complaint a troll. But it's true...PS engineers have not gone out of
    their way to make shortcuts to most everything the way PSP engineers

    In that case i'd stick to PSP if I were you ;)
    Not to defend my most beloved app, but simple preference.

    And i'm quite confident that Photoshop 8 will be equipped with a Keyboard
    Shortcuts manager similar to that of Illustrator (that is CTRL-SHIFT-ALT-k)

    On top of that I think they should rename you app some time soon to Paint
    Shop Amateur. So far what they have been doing is wait for a new Photoshop
    and start programming like crazy to equip PSA with the same (or similar to).

    Looking at the website, I don't get turned on when they have to
    commercialise with features such as "correcting perspective" and
    "straightning photos"

    I also think there are too many people that do not have a professional
    attitude towards working with computers. We should all know about RSI and
    how we can prevent it. After working with Photoshop now for the past 7 years
    (and starting it up practically every day) I still have no complaints


    Normally i'm never this fiery in the newsgroups, but this was fun :)

    It's Carpal not carpel.
    If you would RTFM you'd know that CTRL+L opens the Levels dialogue box.
    Of course somebody like you would go the long way to find Brighten and
    Contrast through the menu bar, Levels is way too advanced right?
    Get lost and go troll somewhere else

    Of course it's true that you're just a sad little troll.

    That's how you detect a PSPer.

    I thought Photoshop users would be more professional and kind. One more
    reason to hang with a PSP crowd...features, convenience, picture-
    tube_tool, and ~nice~ users :)

    I am kind to people who dont post rancid stinking drivel.
    That troll got off light and deserved more. My critisism was aimed mostly
    from the point of view of a news group reader not a photoshop user.

    I'm unaware of any definition of "professional" that includes being polite
    to trolls who aren't paying us anything.

    BTW - your "prediction" was, of course, entirely correct, since you were
    indeed trolling it hardly took rocket scientists to recognize it for what
    it is.

    Nor did it take much genius to spot you changed your posting name.
    I agree, at least as far as you're concerned. Bye.

    Well being a Littleboy explains it all. My son just loves to do things the
    hard way.


    Geeezzzz I can't wait. Do you think that there's still time to suggest
    something as little more complex? Only 4 key strokes seems a little "newbie"
    or "childish" for such a mature application. Maybe something more
    professional to be in keeping with the propeller-head mentality.

    I like CTRL-SHIFT-ALT-y-o-u-h-a-v-e-t-o-b-e-k-i-d-d-i-n-g-m-e. Mostly Mac
    heads anyway and well used to being a slave to the keyboard. Now here is a
    shortcut to be proud of, only PS users with their infinite knowledge would
    be capable of doing it. And in the end isn't that what it's all about?

    Well.. rest assured Tony, you probably won't be needing it that frequently
    (unless you have trouble makin up your mind).

    You see, that's usually they are so clever to use these longer combinations
    for the things you don't quite need that often. It has been mentioned many
    times before ;) but are you familiar with the Illustrator shortcuts manager?
    Would you be much happier if you would find this one in PS?

    Greets ;)

    What's your goal here? Because all you do is proving that you don't know the
    apps you use. There are other ways to make a statement. Or ask a question.

    Love too,

    Hey, you can't spell, you can't read the shortcuts card that comes
    with Photoshop... we really shouldn't expect you to be able to do
    something difficult like use proper software....

    A very poor troll. Extremely obvious. 1 out of 10 for originality and
    0 out of 10 for use of the English language.
