^%$&%**&)(*&*^&%$#%^%$^& and UGH!!!
The first rule of thumb is to ALWAYS save your work as you go! And your saying “well DUH!” and “auto save”. OH contair mon frair!!!
Auto save is set in your computer or program settings at say every 5 minutes? And let’s say your in the zone and designing like mad—do you stop to save? Maybe after 20 minutes when you come up for air!
DO NOT RELY ON THE BACK BUTTON, UNDO BUTTON OR WHATEVER BUTTON!!
Save that Damn UFO, Photoshop or whatever program your using at the onset! and then don’t just play with one image! DUPLICATE that sucker so you have multiple versions so you don’t have to remember now what did I do?
This summer has been the worst for sudden thunderstorms and normally our power hardly ever goes out but this year I swear it’s been a daily occurrence! And of course it goes out inbetween the auto saves!
So remember to come up for air often, duplicate and then play, save everything!!!!
