Getting my Head around PS cs6 #InWorldz

For almost 11 yrs now I have been a content creator for virtual worlds, when I began in #Secondlife February 2006, I tried photoshop, but just could not get my head around it, then I found paint.net even with that it took me a while to learn about layers & I was always aware that there was only so much that I could do with the program, even with the plugins for brushes & effects. I knew that if I could just use #photoshop then my textures, therefore my designs, would be so much better. I did try Gimp as i heard that was very like photoshop, but I would open it up see the 3 windows & quickly close it again. I have tried photoshop a few times over the years & have never felt as comfortable with it as i do using paint.net. However I think all that is about to change with the PS Cs6. I don’t know why but suddenly its beginning to make sense to me. I am comfortable with the interface though its a lot harder than the one I am used to with #paint.net, I don’t feel as overwhelmed by it as I once did. There are 1000’s of tuts on youtube on how to do things & I can hardly wait to begin designing my very 1st item of clothing with this wonderful program. I love all of the brushes I have found Free & installed. I love playing about with them all & seeing the wonderful effects I can use on my textures. For years I have gone with ‘You can’t teach an old dog new tricks’ now its ‘Your never too old to learn’ I put it all down to my faith in LOA which has literally changed my life since I became a deliberate creator of my own reality. There is Nothing I cannot be, or do, or have!

IWv3 hmmmm #InWorldz

I am torn over this new InWorldz V3. Somethings I do like, but a lot of it I totally dislike, problem is, once used, its kinda hard to go back to a V2 😦

I tried them all none of them came up to scratch..

I had been on IWV2 beta still on my old lappy, but … and I had not noticed this before… all the shaders etc in preferences are greyed out, you can’t apply them, so the world looks kind of dull compared to how it looks on the V3

On the V3 though, a lot of my sculpts are sort of broken… they do not rez at all. Even after applying the LOD 4, it seems to be the very old maps, you know before any alpha layer has been applied, when they were just colours… those seem to be the ones that the V3 just does not rez, so I am walking around my gardens & I see bare trees everywhere or my fields of grass are big balls, most annoying!

A really annoying thing too is that I still have OLD LM’s stuck on my favourites… I delete them they come back on a relog…. still have the very old clothes attached to my avie when I go into appearance too, which drives me nuts & has been doing so for the last 4 years.

I don’t like the chat window, I don’t like the inventory folders all being black or grey. I can’t find the AO so have had to go back to actually wearing one, I am sure there is a ctrl thing I have to do to get that AO up??

I suppose I will get used to this V3… overtime, but really do they have to change everything so drastically so that you have to go to re-learn school each time?

pffft
