Things like these don’t happen very often I suppose.
You are surely familiar with the situations when you really want something, you spend hours thinking about it, imagining what life would be if you had it but for some reason you are not so sure whether you should spend that money … . You just can’t decide.

I wanted Photoshop.
For quite a long time.

So I downloaded it (for FREE, because it is for FREE!!!) and have used it happily ever after.
In fact, I still am a beginner, I have much to learn.

The “GIMPressionist”. On canvas!
This one is wicked!
I love it.
What about you?
