Since you are a student, you qualify for Adobe's academic pricing. You can get a copy of Photoshop for a fraction of the regular cost, so it might be worth saving up for.

I cut it off because they were repairing the sidewalk at the far end of the depot and had a bunch of snow fence up to keep people from falling into the holes. I'll give it another try this weekend.

Was it because I cut off the end of the depot?
