Before and after from the YouTube rentals?

I tried finding but couldn't... Where would I be able to find a before and after of the YouTube rentals to figure out which ones I want to watch and which ones I don't?

I understand that there is a small thumbnail as an icon to the show, but it really doesn't give you a good idea of what the class is about. Any place where there are bigger previews?

Not really. The rentals are pretty much designed for people that want to attend the live shows but can't make it, so they will have seen the before/afters.

Let me think about this, maybe there's something I can do.

I waisted my $15 on the Diamond retouching rental on YT, had to sit thru "photo tips" and questions about what software he uses, nothing to do with Diamond retouching at all. The 2hrs could have been cut down to 30mins of actual useful tips.

My first and last time paying for RetouchPro videos.

Re: Before and after from the YouTube rentals?

I too would really appreciate before and after photos as the thumbs just don't cut it. There's a preview but its always just the intro of you talking about the interface which to be honest could be cut from all the rentals since no one needs to hear it unless they're using the gotomeeting interface.

If you want my money on some of these rentals you'll need to post up some medium res before and after images so I can decide if its something I'm interested in. 600-800px tall with before and after stacked side by side would be perfect.

If you don't want to post the images in the youtube descriptions or here on the forums, you might want to edit the videos so that the before and after images are displayed as the first 5-10 seconds of the video? Maybe a crossfade from before to after? More work on your part, but it would probably increase rentals imo.
