Tip of the day: Don't interrupt Photoshop

Photoshop can be a finicky little son of a bitch. When resizing or running any sort of function on a 31MP file, Photoshop can chug. If you (or in this case I) make any mistake in decision-making and subsequently decide to abort the operation, Photoshop will penalize you 2-3x the time it would have taken just to finish the operation and undo the procedure.

So the tip of the day is to just let Photoshop finish its task and then to undo. Never interrupt Photoshop mid-process.


  1. That's the same advice I give myself when my wife is asking me to do something. ;-)

  2. Yep. I learned that one the hard way-- though when all else fails, I commit the tried and true, Ctrl+Alt+DELETE!!! That'll show Photoshop who's boss.

  3. I don't even know what the Mac equivalent to CTRL+ALT+DEL is... LOL! Fortunately I haven't needed it but once or twice since getting my MBP...
