Re: Mastering Retouching DVD by Nick Saglimbeni.

Please go to the website and read the product he is proposing. Six lessons for approximately 6 hours. The lessons will not be ready until Jan2010 for downloading. DVD not ready until March (they hope). Hard copy of the DVD for free (wow what a deal) if you order now in advance at the discounted $500 price...definitely don't wait until the price goes back to $700. Fortunately, the first lesson covers all the basic photo shop needs you will need to apply the "system". The last lesson ...most important ...are the secrets...well worth the investment to stay one step ahead of the competition. Go for it gamedonechanged and let us know what you think.

If you know nothing about retouching and money/value is not a concern...no.

Re: Mastering Retouching DVD by Nick Saglimbeni.

Meaowwwww

In any case I don't think there is anything wrong with trying something new out. Unfortunatley with a lot of these things it's hard to gaugue the facts first as no one here has tried it and there doens't seem to be a thread on MM. Also couple that with the fact that Doug refused to take a copy to try out that pretty much doesn't leave me with any choice other than to just wait it out until someone does take the plunge either here or on MM.

Not trying to have a pop at you Doug but a lot of us were keen to see what the DVD was like so it's unfortunate that you declined Nicks offer of getting a pre release copy.

Anyway I will be ordering it soon so will let you know how I get on.

Gamedonechanged, I don't think most here are saying there's anything wrong with trying something new out.
The thing is that by the little information that there is in the web page, the super simple video example, and what is being provided in the thread, most people smell something funny. I specially do when the producer of the DVD uses marketing language that you know its intended for the newbies, and the none responsiveness to some of the points I have written about.
If you feel the techniques are worth the $500 go for it. At the moment I feel it isn't worth the money.

I think a RetouchPro Live session will help in a big way to determine the quality of the DVD series. I will admit I thought the $500 cost of the DVD is expensive, but when you top of your profession then it seems reasonable.

Re: Mastering Retouching DVD by Nick Saglimbeni.

Are you thinking Nick will do a start to finish retouch so that people can bypass buying the DVD to just see his workflow for $10? lol Nice try but I doubt it.

Re: Mastering Retouching DVD by Nick Saglimbeni.

I looked again at the tutorial presented on the site showing "how to easily change the color of a bra". It appears that there is a mask of the bra prior using the lasso tool that selected the bra prior to changing the hues. Nothing about the mask was mentioned, so a novice seeing this tutorial would get the impression that what is show is all that is required. I see nothing on the tutorials mentioning lessons on masks. Am I seeing this correctly?

Re: Mastering Retouching DVD by Nick Saglimbeni.

Yes you are right I don't see any mentions of masks either. I think everyone here has scared Nick off and he also said he wouldn't be posting any more here so if you have a question you should try asking on slickforce. I asked Nick some very detailed questions there and he was happy to answer them. I'd reccomend you trying the same thing.
