This is one I've been thinking about, and I make so many boo-boos that it's hard to pick one . But there's one that stands out, because in some cases it's a fatal mistake. That is not saving the original scan. When I would think I've got something just right, I had a tendency to get rid of the original. Then I get a little better, or find a new technique, and realize my efforts could have been better. I now have a folder just for original scans, and they stay untouched.

Hey Marie, good to see you back again! I was wondering what had happened to you.
I know exactly what you mean about hard drive space for the big projects, I just had to buy another 40 gig a couple months ago.

Saving the original scan has got to be number one! DOH!

Not saving often enough is number two (not just for Photoshop....everything!). Especially when my computer crashes or does it's magical program close. But that will be fixed soon when that new Powerbook G4 arrives.

Being in the wrong layer or not creating a new layer before making a mess and regretting what I've done is number three.

Nothing new in this list just the normal stupid user (Heather) errors.

Trying to do something on a levels adj layer or just plain using the wrong layer. Sometimes the worst mistake is starting before I have my 1st, 4th,6th, etc cup of coffee!
