Words of advice: SAVE OFTEN! I have awesome talent for crashing programs. They often crash just when I try to open them. Once, Max crashed 3 times when I tried to open it; then it was fine on the fourth time. I think another piece of advice I can give is you shouldn’t have 20 tabs open in PhotoShop. I think that’s why PhotoShop crashes on me so often. I’ve had Visual Studio crash as well. I’m sure programmers out there can understand how painful that is as well. It really sucks to lose your work. Sometimes you don’t even have the motivation, or the time, to do it all over again. So save often. Set an alarm to remind you to save. Ingrain it into your memory to save every 5 minutes. Etch it into your DNA so your children will know to save their work often. Save your work often.
