Re: joining pieces of a ripped photo

Thanks for that and I'll check it out.

I do have a copy of her 'Photoshop Restoration and Retouching'. It's also excellent but it does assume skills and knowledge which, in some cases, I'm clearly lacking...

...but I travel hopefully...;-)

Re: joining pieces of a ripped photo

I find that, in some aspects of using PS, the fact that I used to retouch photography before the digital age helped me a lot. If one was using rubylith and masking techniques and the mime art of D&B ;-) in the old days, one can be fairly gifted in the use of PS. Attend a course on traditional darkroom if you can, or at least read an old book on retouching techniques...each time I'm giving this advice, it has helped a lot! You must "understand" what things are made for.


PS: In France we have the "Rene Bouillot" a sort of a Bible, He wrote a course on photography (shooting and darkroom) that was an all times favorite. And also "Pierre Glafkides" which was a bible for the ones that struggled making their own chemicals...

Re: joining pieces of a ripped photo

Thanks for the tips. I used to dabble a little with printing photos and still have an old Gnome enlarger up in the attic. That, though, was at a very basic level... I'm thinking the books you mention are perhaps a tad advanced for me.

My problem with masks is just a mental block and I guess we all have them. I just need a book, or article or tutorial that 'speaks' my language and answers the questions I'm just about to ask without my having to.

Some writers have that knack and I'll need to keep looking 'til I find one...;-)

Thanks for that and I've gone through 5 or 6 of them so far. No problems as yet so fingers crossed...;-)

Thanks again for your help.
