    Ahhh I hate auctions. Because I took 3 months off selling, I was close to not making the 100 sales in 12 month period so I threw a bunch of stuff up for auction. Had a very nice EZ tie for $9.99 starting bid and this douche sends a message "I will give you $5". I sent back, sure I can do $5 but shipping will be $45. Then blocked him.

    I downloaded the trial for Adobe Lightroom, I can't see me ever needing new features since I basically want to use it to crop photos, adjust lighting based off a gray card and apply it to all in a series, and add a watermark. I can do that with the features available now, so I don't think it makes sense to go the subscription route of $9.99 a month when I can buy version 6 for $149 and own it.



    Thoughts?

    Thoughts, list them as a set or individually?

    I don't know Lightroom, but I'm using Adobe Photoshop Elements, which is like Photoshop-lite, which only cost me $43, thanks to some sale on Amazon. It's currently selling for $80. I use it mostly to crop and to make collages, but I'm sure I'm just scratching the surface of its capabilities. You might want to give it a look and compare.

    Can I / would it be wise to list something as New with tags if it is NWT but missing the spare buttons (which come in a pouch attached to the tags)? If not is it better to list as NWOT or NWD?

    List as NWT and clearly point out thaf there are no spare buttons.

    One big-timer (top shelf apparel, maybe?) routinely sells suits/SCs missing ALL of the sleeve buttons as NWT and seems to have no problem.

    The dipshit that asked me to falsify customs forms and remove tags on a NWT jacket left feedback.

    I'm still using version 5 that came free with something else I bought and it works fine.

    I have the whole creative suite but have never upgraded to the subscription because I am a very occasional user of photoshop and in design and would never find it useful to get on a recurring charge. They totally made the CSS off limits to casual users IMHO.

    Thanks for the reminder to cancel Illustrator, which I only use occasionally, and had added to create some flyers and a logo.

    What pisses me off is that when I go to cancel, they offered me the full Creative Suite for $360/year, which is less per month than what I was paying for just Photoshop and Illustrator for the past two months. I use Photoshop enough that it's worth keeping that $10/month subscription going.

    Hi All,

    Does this jacket look Legit? The only content tag I could find said 100% silk. Now the inner liner feels like silk to me but the outer shell feels more like nylon. Can silk take on a nylon type of feel? This is what is making me question it. Could there be another content tag somewhere? Thanks in advance!
