Update 1:11pm: I've had Windows 7 for about a 2-3 months now...it's still in the beta development even though they released it. So when I tried to install my Photoshop CS3, it didn't work so I guessed it wasn't compatible YET. Just a few minutes ago, I googled about CS3 being compatible and got a great link saying IT IS compatible so I decided to reinstall my CS3 and it works now. They have fixed my issue. I still may teach myself how to use GIMP, I also have PSP9 and know that program as well...doesn't hurt to know a few.
Since I have upgraded to Windows 7, my Photoshop CS3 wasn't compatible and it was recommend to to be removed prior to upgrading. Mind you I got Photoshop free and now there isn't a way for me to upgrade Photoshop to be compatible with Windows 7. I installed Photoshop CS4 30-day free trial and it is up in like 9 days after that I will have to purchase and it cost a whopping $699, too much money for me. I'm not a happy camper at all about this. I have spent the last 4 years learning & using Photoshop and now my other option is to start all over from scratch by using the FREE program called GIMP which is similar in some ways to Photoshop. I just have to learn all over again. I will try to spit out about 5 blogger templates before the end of the weekend and hopefully more before my trial is up. Wish me luck on learning GIMP, lets hope there are some good tutorials out there. If you know of any GIMP tutorials, please send them my way.
My review of Windows 7....one word...AWESOME!!! Everyone should get it. It has some many things you can customize to your needs. It is truly made by us, the consumers.
