Watch YouTube Rentals Full-Screen and HD

It occurred to me today as I helped someone that had never posted in a forum before that there might be people out there that weren't aware that the RetouchPRO LIVE shows on YouTube look almost as good as the live shows if you watch in HD and full-screen.

So, when you rent one of our shows, make sure you click the 1080p and full-screen buttons. (if your broadband can't handle 1080p, select a lower option, but full-screen has no impact on bandwidth)

Speaking of which (and I know you are sick to death of this question by now so I apologize), but I don't suppose there is any more news regarding the availability of the rentals outside of the US?

Trust me, the moment I get the news you won't be able to avoid it.

One way or another, eventually everyone everywhere will be able to rent every available show.

Re: Watch YouTube Rentals Full-Screen and HD

Doug, I was wondering, will there be any consideration of offering these same RetouchPRO Live shows on disc at some point in the not too distant future?

I can see where the live shows would remain strictly on YouTube for 6 months or so and then, those that have been up for at least that time could then be offered; maybe offer related shows that touch on similar subjects or techniques.
These discs/DVD's could potentially include sample PSD (or other files) with which to follow along.

If this is already mentioned elsewhere, please excuse my inquiry/suggestion

Re: Watch YouTube Rentals Full-Screen and HD

There are multiple obstacles, not the least of which is to compress or shrink the files to a size to make this practical makes them essentially unviewable. Even just shrinking to DVD resolution makes menus and filenames only about 4 pixels high. And there's not enough volume to pay for pro editing with zooming, etc. Plus there are other factors.

I've kept the rental price low enough so you could rent the same show 4 or 5 times and it's still cheaper than a DVD would need to cost.
