You know you're addicted to photoshop when..

You see the world with one eye and stock images with the other.

When asked what the primary colors are, answer "RGB"

You get the urge to 'fix' poor quality images.

You start teaching your significant other to use this "evil" program and in the space of one afternoon convince them it's at least only quasi-evil in the face of PSP.

You ramble about a breakthrough in the piece you're doing to people who have no idea in hell what you're talking about

You ponder the meaning of existence without layers.

You never leave the house without a digicam and notepad.

You drop something and your brain tells you automatically "Ctrl-Z! Ctrl-Z!". When you realize it won't work, your brain tells you "Ctrl-Alt-Z! Ctrl-Alt-Z!"

You're getting dressed for something important and you look in the mirror and realize you would look so much better if you could just tweak the levels a little and apply a slight gaussian blur.

You stop on the street to rant about cheesey effects that should not be on professional posters.

You scream out fonts as they appear on TV.

You have dreams in "glowing edges"

You're standing by the ocean and wondering who used Ocean Ripple.

You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends who are addicted to Photoshop.

You wake up after a wild night and try to "sharpen" the images you see through you eyes.

Failing this, you drag your life to the trash can, but it just won't delete.

sigh :(

Ok, so then you must put on an "inner glow"

Now when I watch documentary I realise that I don't catch the meaning anymore. Mostly because all my attention is on "how do they did this".

I thought it bad enough when my kids (including your eight year old) picked the technical faults in photos on walls, magazines, newspapers etc etc (gee look at the ca in that!).  then they progressed to artistic and composition faults, now when they are out they will stand tell and you how a photo hung on the wall could be fixed or improved.  (hard reviewers on stock, try my family :).

Now its sad that when I go to my local shopping centre (in a small country town in australia) I recognise the photos on the centre's display boards and can name the photographer...
