October Recipe Swap

13 October 2014 - 02:06 PM

It's cold, wet and rainy here in the Midwest.  Glad I'm inside today!!  Go Royals! 

 

This month's theme is Quick Breads.  

 

Quick bread is any bread leavened with leavening agents other than yeast.  Quick breads include many cakes, brownies and cookies—as well as banana bread, beer bread, biscuits, cornbread, muffins, pancakes, scones, and soda bread.  Mmm...great for a cold wet day!

 

  • To participate in the Recipe Swap, please email your 4"x6" high resolution (300 dpi saved a high quality - (1200 x 1800 pixel)    Recipe Card to sg.sodscrap@gmail.com by 9 am ET Thursday October 30.  ***(please double check, I've been receiving cards in all sizes and dpi)***
  • It is easiest for me if you use your name or user name + the Recipe name (SodScrap_YummyFood) as the file name on your recipe. (I may change it to make it easier for me to track if you don't.)
  • You are welcome to submit more than one recipe.
  • After I have compiled the recipes, you will receive a link to download the recipe cards from all our participants. You must send in a card to get the link!

Please post your recipe in the Recipe Swap Gallery and post a link back in this thread!

Ps Cs5 Text Is S L O O O O W.............help

22 September 2014 - 08:35 AM

Hello Ladies!!

 

I am having trouble with CS5.  (PC, Windows 8)  I mainly notice it with the text tool (haven't been able to get past that...).  If I try to edit the text, it will take 2+ minutes for one little change.  (Like, to add a punctuation mark, nothing fancy).  Nothing else is open on my computer and as far as I can tell there were/are no scans etc. running in the background.

 

I have:

 

  1. Ran every cleaner I know to do
  2. Ran disk clean up, several times
  3. Cleaned previous restore points
  4. Reset my preferences in PS
  5. Reset my defaults in PS
  6. Ran defrag, it says 0% fragmented (on all drives)

 

I have not:

 

  1. Yelled and screamed at it
  2. Thrown it out the window
  3. Bought a new computer
  4. Yet.........................

 

Anyone have thoughts or ideas??  Thanks in advance for all you help!!
