Help without even posting

Ok- So I made an amatuer mistake but it's a funny mistake. I was having some major problems on a family restore. You know- the kind that is old and has cracks and crinkles EVERYWHERE. Well long story short, I was working on a crack on the arm and it just wasn't looking right at all? What do I do? So I thought I would just post and see what you guys could come up with, so I started making small pics of the project to post on here and thought, I better make a small attachment of the original photo so they know what the original looks like and Low and Behold! It's not a crack at all!!!!! It was a bracelet! Hours of trying to fix a crack that wasn't there.... I think it's time to take a break. Just wanted to thank Retouchpro for being here, cuz who knows how many hours more I would have tried to fix it if I didn't stop and think, wonder what the guys & gals at retouchpro would do? How embarressing! Just when you think your on top of things, something like this slips by! Anyone else have a funny mishap to share?

Happens YOu send so long zoomed in tight you can forget to just step back and take in the hole picture. I have worked on details for hours only to realize that nobody would ever see them anyway once I looked at the full image. One day I will set it up on dual screen so I can keep the image full size on one monitor as I work in detail on the other. You can do this on a single screen also but easier with 2

That is exactly what happened, I was zoomed in to get all those tiny little crinkles and kept running into that "crack". I would love to have a dual moniter setup. Just not sure how that would work out in my workflow or on my desk.

Thanks guys!
