    Which machine is better?

    Hi Tom, nice to see you again. I'm using photoshop for photo editing, working on 128mb 16-bit TIFFs using the Nik plug-in suite. So mostly applying filters as new layers one on top of the other. The external monitor I'm currently using for a dual-display with my laptop is a Samsung...

    Which machine is better?

    Hi everyone, I have the opportunity to get a second-hand desktop from a family member that seems to have better specs than my current laptop. Before I get it, do you think it would offer a noticeable improvement? If not, I'd rather my cousin take it. Hardware is not my forte. Here's what...

    Nik Plugins Take Forever To Load, help?

    Hi Mr. Tom. Ok, so it looks like the first half the problem has been solved. I've incorporated your suggestions. Progress has been made, but still not there yet. Now photoshop doesn't freeze up for 20 seconds when I load the image into photoshop nor does it freeze up when I lick on the...
