Danny,

Wow , I too was raised in Culver City (a humble duplex on Jefferson Bl)

Valuable, useful? Value in the case of the forums is based on intangibles. Yes I consider it valuable because the forums entertain me. They do contain a lot of information, tips, and nuggets that can indeed be valuable. However, they are of no use to me unless I decide to apply them.

I am a newbie so they are both valuable and useful.

I am extremely pleased that I fell upon this website/forum. Being able to view what I deem to be professional level work inspires me to continue studying and learning from the lot here.

I was trying to involve myself in another forum prior to this one and it seemed to be a bunch of kids talking about how cool their ipods were. No forum management and way to much slang and broken sentences for me.

Thanks for the forum!

Well I didn't really need to post here as you all know how much I've been enjoying this forum since I decided to jump in. Now I'm addicted! You'll be seeing much more from me!

Thumbs down I'm still reeling

Very, very useful. I'm still reeling

There's so much to take in, I think I could spend a week here and still only scratch the surface of what there is to see and learn I wish I'd found you ages ago, cos I could have done with knowing I wasn't the only person who didn't know one end of a pencil from the other, but who craftily used Paintshop Pro or Photoshop

Thumbs down Wish I could come here more often

This forum is highly motivating, educational, inspiring, and worthwhile. I only wish I could come here more often. I learned about it over a year ago through reading Eismann's retouching book.

Five Stars

This site is my new home, as this site is the most fun , and informative of all
the sites I found so far.

When I search for tutorials, I find how to make a holiday snowman, or christmas trees. Here you learn how things, work. I thought know how
layers, masks, and smoothing worked, but here I'm getting the "rest of
the story"

I started out with a 8008 based computer (Digital-Robin), no graphics,
but Basic, Visicalc (spreadsheet), and word processor.

Next came my first PC a 16bit 8086, (a Leading Edge), with MS-DOS,
again no graphic's. My next PC still with DOS, but now with a color
display. I now found a public domain graphic's software, from a writer
from Cal. I think it was called IMP, maybe not, it only ran on DOS,
He had some good filters, incorporated, and the one I liked most was
called plasma, and could generate good cloud effects.

Next I went out and bought one of the early versions of painter, and
was promptly over my head, also the computer was under powered.

After that I have had several comuputers, and versions of PSP.
Regards, Dick
