I understand olbaldy's point. But then again, when non reputable companies start selling DVD's no one knows about them and what to expect. So new dvds should clearly state what they will and won't be covering. The DVD mentioned only provides basic techniques and works on a almost flawless picture to begin with. So for a newbie or aspiring retoucher this would have been money wasted, as most newbies won't start off retouching such flawless and hi res images, and the techniques to fix common flaws are not taught. In contrast, anyone pirating anything from Lynda.com has absolutely no excuse, they have a good reputation, charismatic and knowledgeable teachers, 3-4 sample tutorials available for each course and you know exactly what your getting for your money.
