Re: April 2008: Contest Discussion

Hi hankw. Welcome to the Contest forum. It's always nice to see new members here. I'd hate to see you disqualified though. As the rules state, "Final image must be exactly 600 pixels wide and 800 pixels high" -- a vertical (aka Portrait) format. To achieve this you will need to CROP the horizontal (aka Landscape) source photo, NOT just resize it. I'm not familiar with Elements' tools, so you'll have to find out how to crop with it on your own. It should look something like the attached.

Hope that helps,

Re: April 2008: Contest Discussion

Thanks 0lBaldy. That's very kind of you to say.

It was an absolute joy for me to work with this gorgeous young lady's photo. As has been noted, the source photo is certainly less than ideal, but that should never stop a determined, creative retoucher. Confronting such challenges is, after all, what most of us do!

I took the liberty of adding a complimentary new "do" to accentuate a demure, "girl next door" digital makeover. While not necessarily glamorous, fashionable or "artsy", I believe the result is surely appropriate for a 'zine with the requisite title of _RetouchPRO_.
