No matter who I talk to at the moment, the subject always turns to the credit crunch. I can be talking about absolutely anything – puppies, the Wizard of Oz, how I’m going to fulfill my dream of becoming a unicorn, and the subject always turns around to the doom of gloom of the credit crunch.Just the other day I was chatting to a Photoshop artist about their work and seminars and we trailed off onto the subject of the economic climate. The weird thing is, I think Photoshop and money are actually linked. As living costs rise, Im hearing that more and more people are choosing to stay at home and practice their hobbies. Photoshoppers are opting to spend an extra few hours refining their skills, rather than being tempted to nip down the pub and spending those all important pennies. I’m wondering whether people will be inclined to invest in CS4 in the current market? It may be a cheaper option rather than forking out for expensive days out and other hobbies. So perhaps in the gloomy climate  it may be time for an explosion of Photoshop creativity to brighten up the world! Let’s hope so…
