    Hi Guys,

    If you are willing to spend a few buck on a photo editor and manager (at a small price compared to Photoshop) I would recommend a less known program.

    I do not offer this as an "expert" opinion, but my thought is to upgrade first. I want to make sure that all the serial numbers AND user files are correct for a WIN 10 operation. Then I plan to do a...

    Hi Drew,
    1. Obviously I don't want to buy Win 10.
    2. Probably the most likely. Installing a new OS may clean out a lot of old garbage in the process of installation anyway. If not I can, hopefully...

    Why did you buy such an old version? Current is 2015 and has been vastly improved over 2012. Vastly is an understatement, don't bother with it! Maybe they will sell you an upgrade at a discount.
