1 - Let me start out by saying that the the title is a half truth. I'm not officially a newbie - not by a long shot, since I started digiscrapping in 2004 - however, so much has changed that I feel like a newbie. I have had to take major breaks b/c life just gets too hectic and I don't have time to scrap. Plus, last time (in 2013) that I had time to devote to scrapping, I was on too many CTs as an advertiser and that left no time to scrap, so it has really been a LONG time since I have truly scrapped. I really miss the designers and the teams, but I'm looking forward to scrapping and taking pics.
In addition, I used to use a very old system (a PowerPC Mac with OS 10.2 and PSCS2) and now have updated my system to a Yosemite iMac and a Wacom pen & touch tablet. I REALLY am learning a LOT over again.
Also, of note, I am more of a photographer first
and scrapper second so here are all my questions:
2 - What PS do you use and why? I picked up PSE13 because it was fairly cheap, but I wonder if it will be enough. Do you use just Elements or do you use the photographer's PSCC or the single-app PSCC or the complete suite PSCC? I have NO plans to design, except to maybe (big maybe) make the occasional odd element that I cannot find anywhere else. Is one able to upgrade to a higher plan for just a month, if needed, and then go back to a lower plan?
3 - I used to use iPhoto, but now they have Photos, which, from what I've been reading, sucks. What Photo Management software do you use and why?
4 - In what non-designing ways do you use your tablet?
5 - What Font Management software do you use?
6 - How do you print your layouts? I used to use my old Canon i9900 printer, but I'm not certain that I can still use it with Yosemite.
7 - Thanks in advance for any and all help!!!!
