Student needs advice on Digital Darkroom Software and Hardware
Jan 11, 2012

My sincere apology for posting again but I need advice.

I'm a second semester photography student....on a budget. The pariticipants on the DPR Beginners Forum gave me great in advice when I bought my first DSLR and lenses. I'm thirlled with my T3i and the lenses. My next hurdle is learning digital darkroom and I was steered to this site for my new questions.

I've going to buy Adobe Photoshop CS5. However, my beloved Lenovo laptop is a dinosaur and does not meet the CS5 system requirements. Soooo.... now I have to figure out what to do about a new computer, OP system, monitor, and I suppose the next hurdle will be a printer. (I currently have an HP Officejet Pro L7680.)

Do I get a PC or a Mac, which operating system, what monitor, etc.?

Thanks in advance for your help.
