Comments on: Photoshop Widows Club – Rebecca Schewe The latest news about the top pixel wrangling application on the planet. Tue, 28 May 2013 20:20:15 +0000 hourly 1 By: Keith Rudesill Keith Rudesill Fri, 28 Oct 2005 03:49:11 +0000 Becky,

I can’t remember if I ever apologized for renting him that computer.

I’m truly sorry.

I think the next time you guys are coming back from Santa Fe, you need to ring me up in the Bay Area so I can take you guys out on your motorcycles through my favorite motorcycle riding grounds on Northern California…Lake Berryessa, Napa Valley, Alexander Valley, stopping in Calistoga for lunch. I’ve even gone out on the bike with the Canon digital and a buddy to shoot the Mustard in the winter and then go for a romp through the canyons….life doesn’t get any better!

Thanks for the article!

haha, Microsoft is going to release a product to rival photoshop some time soon. Yeah. Right. Good luck MS. I’m still learning Photoshop almost everyday since 1990 (I started using the 0.9 version I think – it fit on a floppy, wait while I go look for it…) I’ve never been at the level of the Jeff Schewe’s of the world but I appreciate it’s subtleties that always reward those who go looking…

Thanks for sharing your story. Great to see pix of you and Jeff from days gone by (that one at the top DOES look like Russell Crowe!). In the early days of EP (Editorial Photographers’ list serve) when I was spending waaaaaay too much time on the internet, my husband jokingly threatened to have a t-shirt made up that read “EP Widower”. Fortunately I eventually came to my senses and went back to my regularly scheduled life, which included him and our kids. :-)

Computers can be a serious addiction, but at least Jeff is productive and positively contributes to the community with his obsession.

All the best to you both.

By: Tim Wilson Tim Wilson Fri, 10 Jun 2005 18:45:30 +0000 Becky, I seem to remember Jeff very excited about his new Commodore 64 back in, let’s see… 1983? Maybe the writing was on the wall even then.

By: Noel Noel Fri, 10 Jun 2005 17:58:11 +0000 Wow, Becky! Great story. Thank you for sharing!

Unfortunately, I’m living the early days of your story with my wife right now. Working from home and my workstation is in our tiny kitchen -the only place where I can control the light! Eating dinner is often interrupted by, “Oh crap! I forgot to upload those files to my client!”


By: pxlfxr pxlfxr Fri, 10 Jun 2005 17:42:15 +0000 I am sure my wife can relate to your story Becky. A IIci was my downfall as well.
First job to 40 hours and I could do it now in 2 or 3. The Gaussian blurs to about 2 hours each and when the “Beep when done” went off I would look as see that they
were not “exactly” right and apply it again.
Stay supportive to Jeff. We all need him and his ilk around. It could be worse. He could be infected with an illness that was not fun!
Best wishes to the Schewe’s.
