Everyone can feel free to email their favorite vendor and say "Hey, why don't you contact Doug over at RP about donating a prize?". If you think this month's contest is tough, try asking a complete stranger to give you their products for free

Usually only works when you have one of Mr Colts products in your hand, rest of the time they seem to ignore you.

Craig, Doug and Greg !!

You guys are a riot exchanging comments, I laugh so much !!
Craig, you have marvelous ideas for prizes, a new car, a trip to the caribbean I mean, those are reasonable requests Doug, why couldn't we get any of those !

And Greg, I think that trying to get something out of a complete stranger with Mr.Colt's products in your hands is called "armed robbery" and that is a no no -or so I was told. Still a good idea though .

And Doug this new photo contest is the ultimate terror for a newbie (meaning me of course) I will still give it a try with not many hopes to win --so you may save the car for another more accessible contest. Though I think we should address our "complaints" to T Paul who accepted the "kind" offer to use that photo.

I downloaded the larger tiff and wonder how will my PC react when starting to work with it if to start it is 12,8 mb and 3285 x 4096 at a resolution of 400 pix/inch !!

Well one thing is certain it will be great fun !!

Thanks T Paul and Doug

Regards - Martha

Just to get a little discussion going.......
Restore and turn the file into full-color oil painting.

I could well imagine myself trying to go direct from the "damaged" original to the painting without actually restoring (*). Would I get kicked out? I suppose not, but best to clear this up first.

*Tried it once and failed miserably - but that's experience.

If you want to restore by painting that will be acceptable. The key is that it must be a finished full-color oil painting--so the missing parts and so on must be corrected. I guess you may say that this is a 3-part contest:

1. Restore
2. Colorize
3. Change to an oil painting

You can choose in what order you approach it and how you plan to accomplish the tasks.

Question History brush

Some help please ?

I tried to use (for the first time) the history brush in the image, but there is a "forbidden" icon and a message appears indicating that the type of color characteristics do not allow to use the history brush.

I converted the image to RGB and it was set as an 8bit RGB image, after receiving the message about the colour I set it as a 16bit RGB but still it would not let me use the brush. Is there a way that I can use that tool, is it useful for this job? I use PhotoShop CS2.

Thank you - Martha

I am not familiar with a forbidden icon for colorization. Have you cropped the image after the point when you want to "history" back to? That's the only time I have seen a forbidden icon...

Marthig Hi

Have you changed the dimensions of the image in any way?
Or the resolution of the image.
The history brush will not work if you want to go back to a state before image or resolution changes.
