Just to clarify,

Is it and(both)/or. Own rights and have permission of person?

Thanks for all you do.

For you and those interested, here are some links where you can find some information and samples about model releases:

Retouch Idea - Me at Ballybunioin, Ireland

This one has terrible light leak. Touch to retouch due to the many background transitions. I would love to have the group take a shot at this. I have a high-res version available.

here's a picture that is a bit of a stinker. this photo is a proof, taken about 80 years ago when my mother was a bit younger. so, first, yes, i have all the necessary permissions/copyrights.

this picture is deteriorating quickly. it's in such bad condition that the emulsion has all dried up and is actually flaking off the paper. just to scan it i had to cover it in clear plastic to keep the flakes from coming off.

it is discernable, however, and i think it would make a great challenge. the larger scan is bigger and at 300 dpi. i can put the larger one up on my web site for download if used for the contest.

Hi T.

An idea for a good contest.

Post an oil painting and the challenge would be to turn it back into a photograph.

Mona Lisa or similar would be a great challenge.

No permissions would be necessary. Just post a link to an oil painting on the net.

Another idea for a contest that may eliminate some of the issues with rules etc, and open the doors to creativity.

Before and after Contest:
Take a photo of yourself and use your skills or tips found here at retouch Pro to do with it as you wish. This is an open contest where you can be as creative as you wish with your image, or just show your retouching skills. The final image will contain both the original and retouched/modified image.

1/ Image must be exactly 1000 x 500 pixels or below. Any image above this will have their votes discounted.
2/ It must show the before and after in the image
3/ It must fit within the 100 KB limit

Just a thought, as it may open the doors to people wanting to show kills they have, but have not been able to show in other contests. In turn it will share that skill with everybody else here.

Just a thought about a gallery and voting system that may be of use here.

Coppermine gallery is a nice little setup that has a 1-5 point voting/rating system on. It also locks it down so you can't vote on your own image, and lets you comment on the images.

It's open source, so it could be modded to suit the needs of the contests here. I'm not sure, but I beleive it will also import/share the user DB from vBulletin.

A "Memorial" Photo

This is the last of a very small number of photos of my brother who passed away back in the 80's. It was used 'as is' for the service. For a long time I have intended to do a memorial piece for the family but, never having done that, I lack good ideas.

This is probably a frequent task for pro retouchers. Lets put it out there and see what comes back. I would not put any restrictions on it other than making it a suitable memorial and 'require' contestants to give some clue as to how it they did it.

Please feel free to scrap this posting after you've read it.

Image for Contest

Here is a portrait shot of my (then) 7yo brother I took a while back, but scanned from negative today. Permissions are granted for it's use on RetouchPRO site and thus for any of the contests. I can provide a high res if needed.
