Re: HiRes Beauty available for retouching

Bill Frey, Skauskas, and Nienna are right. You misrepresented your 'offer', Iconogenic. And that's the kindest, most neutral way to put it.

Don't purchase Iconogenic's images, folks! He's (tried to) abuse(d) your trust, and thus forfeited it.

And when you do purchase those images, you get ff-ing JPGs! Not even RAWs!

Re: HiRes Beauty available for retouching

i did not read everything. But as fellow dutch photographer i was shocked to open istock and i thought right away about somebody try to make a buck. Sorry but i can understand if people think what is this.

I don´t want to offend anybody but in my opinion if a retoucher wants photowork and have to pay for it he will work with a photographer and pay the photographer to do his kind of work so he have starting point to edit from. And he will not take use of your istock photos.

But that is my 2 cents so sorry if i offend somebody.

Re: HiRes Beauty available for retouching

This thread get more amazing by day. I've learned a lot so far.

- I am a thief, an abuser and a quick buck maker
- "making a buck" has worse reputation than porn: it's SHOKING
- paying a photographer is suddenly a much better deal than buying from microstock
- putting an offer in a wrong part of a forum is followed by the worst ban imaginable: THIS kind of thread.

After all I said already (and I'm running out of all diplomatic ways of saying it, you see, I even started to use capitals), this goes on and on. I actually had a much better idea of retouchpro dot com audience... Pity. Well, have fun, watch you blood pressure and try not to get too ridiculous. I'm out.

Re: HiRes Beauty available for retouching

Hey people, what the hell you keep insulting this guy. If you don't like it, don't buy it. You people must be civilized instead grouping yourselves to feel the power of majority and start insulting just like savage hordes of arrogant ignorants hyenas!!! Nobody here can state Iconogenic is a bad guy. No body have proofs of that. Before pointing with the finger and opening the mouth of the madness be sure you have proofs! Imprudent people!

The buck making is not mented about you. It is about the istock. If i open a link and i see istock i close it. But that is my personal feeling. That you offer a service and can and will make some money with it is totally normal for a photographer.

What i said paying a photographer is because he can make the work in the way you want it to start editing from. Then having a photo that is allready made and maybe is not the style for retoucher.

I did not read all thread. I only gave my opinion. When i open a link with istock. Alot of people work here to help others to understand certain ways a certain retoucher/photographer edit photos. So it is all free based. It would be the same if you wanted to learn a technique. And somebody here offers you to learn it to you. But then you have to go to link www abc-itellyou . com and then you come there and it says cost 25 euro to use freely my technique explanation tutorial.

Sell work on the right places. And if you wanna help people to good work then right away say it is for low price or for a cost price. Then nobody will stumble over it. Now people thought they get offered something free and find out they don't.

You can now download 21 megapixel highest quality unretouched jpeg images here to practice and give your portfolio a good boost. My best models, awesome detail and enough “imperfections” to play with - I hope it will help you to create a professional looking presentation. Feel free to show “before and after”. The credit back to my istock portfolio is appreciated and required... and appreciated.
If I purchase an image from istock, there is no requirement to post a link or credit back to you.

You also failed to mention in the OP that there was a cost involved.

He also didn't say

"DOWNLOAD THESE AMAZING RAW FILES FOR FREE"

I looked at it, thinking "ooh this could be nice" saw it was jpegs I had to pay for and wasn't interested in buying them. That was it.

I am slightly surprised that there's such a bit deal about this. Someone's taken some pics and wants to distribute them in a way that's beneficial to both parties. He (or she) gets a bit of money, you get a relatively high quality file. How awful is that?

I'm really confused at this debate. Not everything is free sadly. Buying the creative suite costs a lot of money. A model costs money, equipment costs money, makeup artists cost money. Everything costs money, so someone charging a nominal fee for his images, and giving you complete freedom to mess with those images, is REALLY not that big a deal.

If you don't like what he's selling don't buy it. If you don't like the way in which he's selling stuff, don't buy it. Stop whining and carry on.

Also: if the copyright police ever came round.... well.... I'm pretty sure there's a lot of celebs/models/photographers that would be quite interested in what most people are doing here. This purchase from iStock would be safe in that way, so there is an upside to this

No problem. Most of them will give you permission to show the stuff. You will get something very fast

Well it is not like you really brought anything to the board that was not soley profitable for you so I am sure there is nothing to be missed. I hope you have a great day
