First of, since I forgot to make a post on this blog for New Year's Day, Happy New Year to the small number of readers of this blog and hope your 2019 is a good one.
Now back to the topic at hand. Since last night I have been running into severe issues with my copy of Adobe Photoshop CS5 running on my Mac OS X, which I've owned and proudly used since late November 2010 with little trouble.
My current situation is the following: If I open a project and proceed to click the project window with any sort of move tool, or click the top part of the toolbar to move it to a different part of my screen, Photoshop completely self-destructs and closes itself. I can click around on things like the layers window, swatches, and use shortcut keys to change my current tool, but if I do anything that involves clicking a project window with a tool that moves layers and other parts of an image, even after opening multiple windows, Photoshop can't handle it at all and just gives up.
This effectively means I cannot do any form of art-creation or sprite work, which is a shame because I wanted to return to doing art today after slogging through a Splatfest for several hours last night. My current options are either to somehow get these issues resolved, or go and buy the newest version of Photoshop which is locked behind a subscription. Until then I'm pretty much forced to go on a hiatus till I can work something out. Sorry, everyone.
