Of course, you can always type your tips into our tips forum, that way you'll have a powerful SQL engine to search through them anytime you want

Are you refering to tips we get from other sites? Can't we get in trouble doing that?

Ed,

I searched RP and found a few QuickTime tip links. I also searched on Google and found some, but they, of course, don't have any RP recommendations.

Perhaps you could start a thread that lists links to web pages which have tips with QuickTime movies that you liked.

Thx!

Gene

Hi Greg,

I use a program called Vault that you can download here.

http://www.personalmicrocosms.com/html/32bit.html

It's incredibly easy to organize your tips with this program and the freeware version has always been enough for me.

Hi Sharon

Thanks for the link to Vault program.. Could you please explain just how you use this program. For example:

If you see a post on the Retouchpro forum that is worth keeping, can you cut and paste it into the vault program.

Do you have to store your tips using Msword or some other text program and vault is used to open these documents..

If you could clear up the potential uses for this program It would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Jerry

Use a search engine.

With a lot of tips and tutorials in html format you might look at Sleuthhound at http://www.isleuthhound.com/products/. This program lets you specify search areas (i.e. store your files in folders called Tips or Tutorials) then you can use Sleuthhound to search for key words just like a search engine (Google, AltaVista).

For example you could search for "layer mask" or "brushes" etc. and Sleuthhound will find and display all the files it found with those key words, complete with a header and some of the text from the file.

It supports Boolean and wild card searches and there's a free demo download. The regular program costs $20.00 US and the Pro version is $34.95

I wouldn't say one could copy and paste them verbatim from another website, but Photoshop techniques themselves aren't copyrighted. They are routinely passed along and shared, and that is the intention of tips in the first place. If you have a tip that you routinely use and just type it in your own words, I doubt that there is anything illegal about it.

Yes, the tip itself isn't copyrightable, only the wording and/or presentation used to describe it. So paraphrase away!
