    there must be a better way

    I've been watching tons of tutorials over the last week on how and why to retouch. I think the perfect teacher would have the following qualities;

    Philosophy of Chris Orwig (most definitely a favorite)
    breadth of knowledge of Deke McClelland (he's amazingly thorough)
    and the voice of Colin Smith (I can listen to him endlessly)

    Notes on changing to a Mac.
    The magic mouse can be programmed to have a right click. Woot!

    There's good and bad about the glossy screen. I have to take frequent breaks or risk a headache. In one sense it makes everything look good. In another sense I can see details that were not visible before so it's difficult to know when I'm done.

    Many, many of the free plug-ins aren't available for the Mac. I do have a Windows partition but it's such a pain to use that I probably won't.

    I can't believe how quickly I was able to rebuild my Nano. This was a task I was avoiding and it only took a couple of hours.

Having looked at one a few years back I was put off by the highly reflective screen...

      Windows > Mac

      I guess I should chronicle my switch from windows to Mac here.

      Why a Mac? DH was behind on a 50th birthday present and a 30th wedding anniversary present and the local shop ran an amazing 3 day sale. So he told me it was now or never. They were clearing things out for an end January inventory...
