Re: This photo is in dire need of help

sometimes when you edit a photo so long, your eyes start to forget things, or dont notice stuff, I have my assistants all the time give me advise on my retouches. they catch things all the time i miss.

Re: This photo is in dire need of help

Well, I am still working at it can't really say I am making good progress but I am starting to learn some of the technics from the excellent tutorials. I just have to figure out how to lighten some of the real dark areas without washing out the entire photo.

Try the Shadow/Highlight filter under Image/Adjustments.

Re: This photo is in dire need of help

Been working this one off and on for quite a while, using it to play with some of the damage-masking techniques described in Ctein's book. After futzing around with trying to do the job efficiently, this is where I'm gonna stop. Just for info, most of the damage got minimized using global corrections through channel blend masks in PS CS3. The rest was a little cloning/healing and a touch of dodging and burning (the latter not done too well - just enough to demonstrate that it would help). The only plugin used was Noise Ninja. If anyone's interested in detailed workflow (whatever I can reconstruct), pm me.

What does "WIP" mean? I'm frustrated with people who post in forums that use abbreviations/acronyms I don't understand.

Re: This photo is in dire need of help

Thanks. This is not a frustration I'm experiencing only on ReTouchPro and the Web. It's endemic to the entire media community. People throw around these abbreviations/acronyms (AAs), signifying that if you don't know what this group/forum, whatever, is talking about, you're not "in."

On the other hand, if I'd gone to Wikipedia, I'd have gotten your explanation. Well, I'm lazy & I think anyone who wants to use AAs ought to give the full words on first mention of the AA, as I just did. Again, thanks.

Doug, are you listening?

Re: This photo is in dire need of help

you say you dont want to search on wiki for a definition because your lazy.
mybe thats why people use abbreviations/acronyms, because they dont want to type out the whole word (lazy).

its just a matter of time before you understand them.
just like any language you learn.
abbreviations/acronyms have been around long before the net

you cant control others actions only your own.
so if you want to fit in youll have to stop being lazy and search for definition on wiki like every new abbreviations/acronyms user does
