Is "paint program" a generic description for any photo editing application? If so I have Photoshop and Jasc. Also, how do I access the clipboard in Vegas?

Thanks again Edward,

Yes, "paint program" is generic for PhotoShop or PaintShopPro or any of the others out there (even Microsoft Paint that comes with Windows).

If you're wanting to paste the image from the clipboard into Vegas, you can't. You have to paste it into the paint program, save it, and then load that saved image into Vegas.

I run a dual monitor setup, have for many years. I edit on my main monitor and preview on my secondary, a widescreen LCD. Works great for me.

Yes... I have been using dual monitors now for a 4-5 years and I can most definately vouge for this being the ONLY way to go. I simply couldn't imagine editing without having two monitors. I would *definately* go with 2 - 24" monitors over 1 - 30" in a heartbeat. Makes your job easy because all you need to do is pickup another 24" monitor identical to the one you have now.

Another plus to dual monitors is that with MCE I can watch TV on one while "working" on the other. :)
