re: Announcing RetouchPRO LIVE - 05/27/09

I don't think that there will be any worry about me going to fast. My style is extremely repetitious. If anything t'll be more like "Is he still doing the same thing??? What gives".

Seriously though. I don't go fast, to anal about it to go faster.
But the nice thing about this format is there is the opportunity to let me know and therefore adjust one way or another.

The bigger problem is to get me to keep talking...

Chris

Thanks to those that have joined so far, but for this thing to succeed at this ridiculously low price-point it needs to be less like a kaffee klatch and more like an auditorium. Don't wait till the last minute to sign up, and encourage other sites to join in.

I've already gotten inquiries from other pros about presenting at future events, but this is still too on-the-bubble for me to tell them anything other than "let's wait and see how it goes".

This is less than the cost of some single magazines, 1/2 the cost of the most deeply discounted books, and 1/10th the cost of a typical DVD (and a DVD won't let you talk to the presenter).

So even if you're undecided about this particular presentation, buy a ticket anyway, as a vote for continuing this. And if you think you have a way to get the word out to other people that might be interested in this, do it.

This could be an interesting and educational couple of hours, or it could be the beginning of an entirely new medium for continuing education about retouching and photography. The difference between the two relies not on me and my industry connections, but on you building grassroots support.

I have one more question.
How is it going to be transmitted?... I'm asking because I'm a MAC user and sometimes I have problems with watching movies on some portals.

re: Announcing RetouchPRO LIVE - 05/27/09

I will do my best to keep taking. Honestly, it's Photoshop so it'll be a snap.

As Doug has stated already, this is somewhat of a unique event for this industry. There
are a lot of much more talented and knowledgable about different kinds of retouching/restoration than I might be. There are people very interested in participating in
this event in the future and are very curious about how this will end up doing. It's
not often that one is around for what could push forward a new way to present knowledge en mass for people who would normally never dream of being on the Presenter side.

And yes, there are other people who have tried to present or teach in this manner but very few have been succesful enough. Not because of the knowledge being given, but because of clunky interface or just being to slow on delivery.

And how often does one get the chance to get nearly one-on-one with one of the're
peers? And without the noisy person sitting next to unwrapping a candy bar or asking you
"what did he do? What did he say?".

And I have to admit the test run ran surprisingly smooth on my mac. Quite unlike when I have tried to follow others on different software.

And most people have "known" me for enough time that I try not to dissapoint when parting knowledge about using Photoshop.

I hope to be answering your questions next wednesday!

Chris

re: Announcing RetouchPRO LIVE - 05/27/09

Few technical questions:
- Is the transmission far enough to notice color corrections? (I am wary about image compression)
- what we will see? Full desktop, or what?
- who host this transmission?
- can we take a look on a hi-res? Will it be available for download bef/aft after the show?
