    been gone, need help

    yeah, okay, I've been gone a while, like a lot longer than I had intended on being gone. For some reason the board here has been REALLY slow on my machine ... it's not a whole lot better, but I am once again going to make an effort to come back. Anyway, I wanted to ask -- when you need a...

    PS 6 -> 6.0.1

    I've been trying to update PS 6 to 6.0.1 on my Macinntosh for a while now. When I run the updater, it looks ONLY on my startup disc for PS, and it's not there. I've got a 40Gb HDD that I've partitioned into five disks, and PS is on one of the partitions that isn't my startup disk. Does...

    Quick question about transparency: Say you've got an image that has a background of a single colour. Say you want to take that colour and make it transparent. If the image in in Indexed colour mode, then you can view the colour table for that image ... and presumably assign one of the...
