PIECE-A-CAKE,” said Peter, after taking his first peek at the Photoshop 7 upgrade. “We’ll get it done in time to have the whole summer off,” he added, smiling and polishing his golf clubs.

“Hah!” said Elaine, with a sneer. “Don’t kid yourself. Every single screen shot has to be redone for Mac OS X. Like, hello?”

“We’ll get somebody to do that,” said Peter.

“Good, glad you got that covered. Now, what about the gazillion nitpicky changes that nobody talks about? They add a word next to a check box here, expand the range in a palette there... Next thing you know, it’s the end of September, your golf clubs are rusty, the distributors are tearing their hair out, and Nancy Ruenzel’s had a cow.”

“Victor will help us,” said Peter.

“Glad Mr. Smarty will be on board,” said Elaine. “One more minor detail. We need to cover new features: Brushes palette, File Browser, Pattern Maker, Match, ’boo-boo’ brushes—blah, blah, blah, blah...”
