Memories of the space we use to have

The Bug was asking me about the memory and space. Graphic programs are memory hogs. It seems the more you have, the more they want. You will want to make sure your ram is maxed out and that you have at least 2x the size of the program in free memory on your operating drive. … Continue reading »

Lay it down, part 3

Since we have already gone over layer palette, I will just provide a link to “Not quite your standard layer cake” here.
