  • Frequent Program Crashes

    Hey everyone, I'm new here so I'm not sure if this has been discussed before or not, if so please point me in the right direction. Anyways, I am experiencing frequent crashes with a couple of my programs, mainly Dreamweaver 8 and Illustrator CS2. Sometimes it gets to the point where they crash as soon as they are finished loading. I am running these on a Mac PowerBook G4 with OSX 10.4.8 with 1.25 Gb of ram. Has anyone experienced this similar problem or know what could be wrong?

    The first thing to try is repairing permissions with Apple's Disk Utility, which is located in the Applications>Utility folder. Launch it, and then click on the icon of your hard drive, and select Repair Permissions (don't bother with Verify Permissions).

    There could also be some bloated caches, fonts in particular. If you turn your computer off, there are also some routine maintenance scripts that the OS runs which are not being run, because they generally take place very late at night (provided the machine is on, not sleeping, logged out or shutdown). If you would prefer not to leave your machine on all the time, there are several free and/or shareware utilities that will perform these functions for you. They're referred to in this article from Macworld. I use one called Tweak Freak.

    Hope that helps. Keep us posted.

      Right, you don't HAVE to take it to Photoshop, but try it 20 times, then try direct export 20 times, and then decide for yourself which result is more worthy of your workflow....

      I think PNG is required in this instance because the file is interpreted literally by the software doing the direct to garment printing. Thus, if the artwork contains a white BG instead of a transparent...

      The sample you posted is a doodle. I see those books all the time too, and I find it amazing that someone (many people) figured out how to turn a buck from their doodles. They're fun to draw...just get...
