      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...

                      Here here! I can vouch for that one personally.

                        so true CJ! when I'm working on photos I always save every couple minutes and every few days I do back ups of anything I haven't yet on CD-RWs so I've been lucky so far and never really lost much.

                          I save anytime I've done something I don't want to have to do over. I'm still not happy with the downtime, but the results can't be beat!

                          I also keep saving a dup file to a zip or external drive; I got told off on a job once for having more than one working copy anywhere, but then the server crashed with a 15-hour photo-composite and retouch on it. It took the better part of 8 hours to recreate it -- now I invariably save a dup.

                            Hi Folks!
                            sometimes after a photo retouching of a raw pic I'm not able to save it as Jpeg, I mean Photoshop doesn't give me this option -just a reduced number of options- and I didn't understand so far why and when this happens...Any suggestion to give me? Thanks.

                            That might actually save Medicare and SS.

                            After removing a yellow tape mark by duplicating the red channel, adjusting curves, saving it as a new doc. and then applying it, my options to save the corrected photo are limited. I'm trying to save these files for my siblings who have all requested that they be in bmp format. There's no option...
