Practice pics

Hi, Is there any sites that I could download any practice pics from to restore, I cant seem to find any good pics to work on at all.

Any help would be great, thanks.

I Agree with Craig and Janet... RetouchPRO Challenges would be an excellent place to start!!

A few other sources for pictures:

Another good source is the Government @ "The Library of Congress "
