Request: Non-Photoshop tutorials

I see over and over again in the newsgroups complaints that there just aren't very many good retouching/restoring tutorials that don't focus on Photoshop.

So, non-PS users, here's your chance!

Put together an original tutorial for something...anything...relevant to retouching and restoring photos using your preferred software. Check out our existing tutorials section for ideas. Don't forget to include screenshots! Zip it all up and I'll take care of the formatting (or go ahead and format it yourself, and I'll make it fit).

But they shouldn't just be reprints of stuff you've put up elsewhere (but feel free to add a link to your existing stuff).

PS users, this doesn't let you off the hook! We still need your tutorials, too.

It seems as though things haven't changed much over the last five years or so. I began with Picture Publisher, which had no manual and little online help. My knowledge about using programs like this was zilch! It was *very* frustrating. After I acquired Photoshop, or a little before, there were a few sites coming on for Picture Publisher. So I know the feeling these other software users have. It ain't good.

Thumbs down

Over the last two days, I've submitted several detailed responses to various challenges using "WinImages", a very powerful application that bears very little resemblance to Photoshop. WinImages has a boatload of layer modes (over seventy) and the tools it has don't follow the Photoshop mold, if you will. It is a *super* application for retouching and image manipulation.

I tried to pick challenges that required different approaches, so each submission would highlight a different technique within WinImages.

None of these have shown up yet, so I presume the moderator is busy, but they're done, anyway. Hopefully soon!

Thumbs down non-PhotoShop Tutorials

I mainly use Corel PhotoPaint. I would love to give some tutorials. I just replied to another thread about giving skin tones a good metalic look. I'll attach the file here too.

Neat. Here's a chrome version.

1) select skin

2) convert to monochrome

3) apply histogram remap to all three RGB channels as shown in attached image

How's that?

Hey, all you have to do is write your tutorials step by step and attach some image examples and send them to Doug. If you need further specifics, e-mail him and see what he wants. Also check out the tutorial section to see how the ones submitted were done. Love to have them added to the site so please give it a go.

A few others:

and links from the PSP FAQ:

one more:

especially here, a cool tutorial on gamma/histogram:
