I own a PC, so I didn't have to buy parallels, and the RAM helps my computer all around, honestly. The point I was trying to make was that I didn't know SAI could only reserve 4 GB of RAM until after I bought the extra 4 GB.
Gotcha gotcha. @_@ Muh still, too much effort to put it on your mac that way. Bootcamp is much more sufficient if you want it on your mac at all and you'll have better access to your other windows programs if you had some.
Maaaaaybe bootcamp will work. At least it's something to consider. I'm not to eager to replace Parallels at this point in time since it took some effort to set it up. Perhaps if there is no other solution I will go that route.
I realize that. I have Paint SAI because I like the easy interface. I don't like complicated gunk and features that I'm not going to use. I like the blending option in the tools. I like the line stabilizer. I've tried alternatives. I've tired gimp, photoshop, corel paint, manga studio, and fire alpaca. These programs are supposed to be similar to SAI. But to me, they will never be SAI. I didn't like the features, layout, and some just didn't even offer what I was looking for.
I still use photoshop, have for years. But I don't like to paint on it at all. Anyways, I customized my computer for SAI for a reason, I'm not about to ditch it the drop of the hat because it I'm trouble shooting with it.
