So, I've uploaded a ton of very sketchy pictures lately and very few digital pictures. That's because, as it turns out, Photoshop works shit with Windows 8. Screen keeps flashing and going black when I try to do something even semi advanced such as *gasp!* using the lasso tool.

Oh well, I like the sketchy look with minimal work done to it. Makes it feel more raw and less set in stone.

I looked through a lot of the comments and didn't see anyone suggest a diff. program than PS. I personally like to use GIMP, it's free and customizable and works with 8.

Also, I like your sketches too. I'm not suggesting a fix so that you'll do it that way, just in case you wanted an alternative for maybe other projects. I know I'm always uncomfortable when I don't have all the tools I'm used to.

I have Windows 8 and it has been working amazing. Also, PS (I have CS6) works without problem.
However, I've had a friend that her PS kept doing that do her. She had found out it was something to do with her graphics card. Maybe you could look into that.

Microsoft is just in the crappy operating system phase. Don't worry though, after this will be a good one, and then a bad one after that. It's just an endlesss cycle.

XP(good), Vista(bad), 7(good), 8(bad), etc.

I rather liked Vista, though. I was rather sad when my Vista-operating computer broke and I had to get used to Windows 7. =P

I had to get used to windows 7 too, I went from xp to 7. So I never used vista on a computer.

What version of photoshop are you running? I need to get PS soon as well as a new computer.
