Is this the voice of experience?

I spent most of the morning masking out some trees and bushes and then my computer froze and I had to do a hard boot. Lost it all.

That's a good tip to get in the habit of doing. I think we've all lost at least some time by not saving often. For some reason it seems to be hard for people to get into the habit of saving frequently. Maybe an alarm clock set to go off every 20 minutes might help.

I hear ya and I firmly believe it because I've gotten caught so many times I can't count. Good advice. Sorry you had to suffer such a loss though.

I guess I need the practice - both making masks and saving!

Here's another tip for you. If you spend more than a few minutes creating a mask, save it as an alpha channel. It will save you alot of grief also, especially if you ever need to remask that same area or the inverse of that area in the future.

Good advice. I usually do, but today was income tax day for me and I was a bit rattled LOL

as well as save,save save we should all back up our hard drives often. Another voice of experience, but luckily not recently.

Of course, it never crashes unless there's something IMPORTANT that hasn't been saved yet. Another one of Murphy's Laws...
