RetouchPRO LIVE "Black & White" with Gry Garness

It seems like a long time since we've had a live show from Gry Garness because it has been a long time. Far too long away from one of our most popular presenters.

On our next all-new RetouchPRO LIVE show watch the live desktop of professional retoucher and trainer Gry Garness as she shows you her black & white Photoshop techniques.

From Gry:
"This show is about creating black & white images that emulate the traditional darkroom print. I've printed my own work in the darkroom for over 15 years and have lots of advice on how to make the grain look film-like and achieve the right tonality. I will be showing my high contrast Lith technique; a simple recipe that works on most BW images, using Smart Objects and a rarely used filter. Using another image I will show how 2 adjustment layers can be combined for a flexible BW conversion, followed by a simple split tone. With a third image I'll focus more in-depth on grain, texture, quality and printability."

Please remember to click "Return to Merchant" after paying so you can complete your registration.

Saturday, October 9, 2pm CDT (see link below for other time zones)

the "Return To Merchant" button did not work for me. How do I register if I can't get back to the registration page?

I am new to this site but would love to catch this presentation. Unfortunately I have a shoot on Saturday. Do you guys record these things and make them available at a later time?

Each show is rebroadcast a couple of weeks after the live show, then posted for rental on YouTube (but that is currently only available for US viewers until the beta is complete).

Re: RetouchPRO LIVE "Black & White" with Gry Garne

The ticket sales link is now closed.

If you haven't received your confirmation email, check your spam folder. You'll want to make sure both retouchpro.com and citrixonline.com are whitelisted (listed as "trusted" or "friendly" or "always allowed") in your spam filter.

If you can't connect, verify you have Java installed and active.

Tollfree 24/7 tech support phone numbers can be found here (make sure you specify gotowebinar in the dropdown options).

Come back to this thread after the show and tell us your thoughts about it. Also, give us your requests for future shows with Gry Garness.
