Funny Break: CS 4 Crash Reports


Garrett Murray, like us, spends quite some time in Photoshop.

Which means that every so often, more often than he’d like, Photoshop crashes. And he’s presented with this window asking for details.

Unlike us, he obliges:

Crashed on quit again. I’m confused by this. Why would quitting the app cause a crash so frequently? This would be like if you worked in an office from 9-5 and every day at 4:59PM you became filled with rage and ran around throwing chairs and breaking windows. Then you went home and came back the next day acting like nothing happened. Only a psychopath would do this.

You’d think quitting, of all things, would be the easiest action Photoshop could do. Hell, it’s not even an action. Photoshop just needs to give up. I see it giving up all the time half-way through important work, why can’t it do it when I hit CMD+Q?

Oh, crap, I’ll have to fill you in on more details later, it’s 4:58PM and I have to get ready to throw my chair through the window in a minute.

Don’t miss the rest of his collection. (And for more Photoshop chuckles, an oldie but goodie: 101 Photoshop Tips in 5 min.)
