Flora,

Thanks for the Settings, found the curves adjustments really interesting, much more radical than I would have used, (but obviously effective), must try being a bit more adventurous with my tool use.

Oh, almost forgot, thanks for your kind comments.

Gary.

Thanks to everyone!

Im sorry I havent responded sooner, my computer has been giving me trouble since I switched to broadband... I think it got a virus between switching my antivirus subscriptions. Im having some trouble with Internet Explorer. When I bring up the thread, the messages are there but the attachments do not show.

Anyway, Im looking at them here at work, and since I do not have PS CS here, I cant do much to play around with the suggestions yet, but what you have all done is extraordinary. I cant wait to try working on it now.

I hope you can bear with me until I get this straightened out. Then Ill post some comments...

ok?

cedwar,

for browser troubles, get 'Hijackthis'. it can handle a LOT of junk that is targeted for your browser that the anti-virus folks cant or dont. just be careful with it. it's pretty powerful and always use the backup mode that will back everything up before it 'fixes' things.

Does this make any sense??

I just noticed that if I view the forum when Im logged in as cedwar, I cant see attachments in the threads. But when Im on the site, but not logged in, I can see the icons with file names after them and can click on them to view. I may not be able to see the thumbnails, but at least I can see the icon to click on. I looked in my user preferences and cant find any setting that looks like its set wrong. Anyone have any ideas?

If you look in the FAQ section, Doug has posted some reasons that people can't see the images, check there first.

Gary! Thanks!! After quite a bit of clicking around in my firewall (I have a firewall different from any of the ones with tips in the FAQ section), I finally figured out what settings to change and can see the thumbnails now.

Thanks again! Now Im going to get to work on trying everyone's suggestions!

Thank you for your patience...

Hi everyone... Ive been away for a while. The problem I had before with my computer got worse and I had to take it in to be worked on so I had limited access to the internet and no access to Photoshop. But now I have it back and Ive been trying all the suggestions I received and it certainly looks a lot better than the original. I cant seem to get any better as far as the blotchiness goes, especially in the face. Maybe its too much to expect, to get it better than this, but I thought Id post my copy of what I got out of your tips, and see if anyone thinks it can get any better than this. Thanks for your help and patience!
