Re: HiRes Beauty available for retouching

The thing is, for some people it is exactly about selling part (post #6).

Anyway, I thought that link to istock would automatically assume they are not for free. But then again, from post #14 I can see that people don't know anything at all about iStock. Anything, at all.

Ok, my apologies. I certainly didn't think anyone here is stupid. I was hoping to see more input about my images, as well as other ways to get unedited images, and gladly, some of this input there was. I was not intending to fool anyone and try to get all your money out of your pockets before you know it. If attacking me made somebody's day, I'm glad. Sunny over here today too.

Re: HiRes Beauty available for retouching

Personally I'm very grateful to Iconogenic for putting the option out there & think that accusations of exploitation etc are a bit silly , ok so maybe it seemed like the images may have been free as generally around here everything is which is great but generally in the real world you gotta pay for the product of other peoples efforts , so I'll happily pay a reasonable sum for something I like, need & which is indisputably top quality, & also appreciate the efforts of high-end professionals taking the time when possibly they have no real need of their own to do so.

Thx Iconagenic , hope you continue to offer these images !

Thank you, Mark! So far it's been more of an effort to prove I'm not a fraud, than to put those images there

Re: HiRes Beauty available for retouching

i have to admit, i thought the images were offered for free but then i clicked on the link and saw istock...

i know you didn't try to be misleading people to make some quick bucks. what i don't get is that after you tried to explain yourself and people still tried to attack you.

in the business world, you have to spend money to make money. or you can steal

Re: HiRes Beauty available for retouching

People, don't start isnulting each others. Just be calm. Iconogenic, I know you can be upset but that doesn't gives you any authority to call "stupid" to someone just because that someone doesn't know what you know. If that's your reasoning, so you're also stupid, I'm an stupid and all of us are stupid, which is logically true, we're stupids in many ways. However, knowing we're not Goddes, we're not the WISE made human, we have to respect the stupidity of the others, but first we must assume our own. The real stupid people are those who doesn't assume that they're also stupids and call others stupids. Stupidity and arrogance goes hand to hand.

You should see what about each context, this is RetouchPRO, not iStock. Here, people don't sell more than their services, and there is a forum for doing that. If people have to buy your pics, even if you don't want to sell them and that's not the point of this post, this post should be placed in other forum/thread because it envolves a business-like thing from the beginning so people will not react as they do.

By the way, if I'm the item Nr 1 (since I'm who gets RAW Files), I don't blame you. I said that your offer is not usual and that people can choose between paying or getting the pics for free, same like you state.

Try to accept your little errors, like calling people "stupid" or mistreating people like you did with Nienna. I think people here is enough mature to accept your apologizes, if any. You, me and the whole human raze are not perfect. I don't know why we humans believe we are perfect and we expect others to be as perfect as WE are and we don't get realized that none of us is really perfect; we become fooled by arrongance as the time pass by, treating others like garbage while we have all the garbage we see in others but inside our soul. Of course, our ego takes care of blind our selves from our selves and we end looking the others defects.

When explaining yourself, as you correctly do, please, try not to be arrogant in the process. That's not good.

Have a good weekend,

Mart

Hi, Iconogenic

I think the negative replies were caused because you posted in the Photo Retouching Forum instead of the Classified Forum. It would have then been clear that the images are for sale and I'll bet you would have gotten more 'thank you's' for your offering.

Yep, got it. Sorry.

I never ever called anyone here stupid. I'm very upset to hear I did.

I wouldn't worry about it, Iconogenic. People get hot, then it's all forgotten. Sometimes it's too easy to vent our feelings when we don't have to look the person in the face.

Sorry for all the bad feelings. Just start over and leave this thread behind. I'm sure some will enjoy taking you up on your offer.

Regards.
