I might as well jump in........I am a architectural building designer by trade 30 years designing homes. My wife runs our reprographics business and does life size cutouts and life celebration boards for funerals.

I live in Avon IN married to a wonderful woman (my best friend). We work together she run the reprographics business and I draw pictures.

As I attempt to slow down I have been requested to clean up photos that have missing body parts "not in a photo". I know very little in CS2 suites, I have it so I started messing around cleaning up photos. It is amazing what can be done in photoshop.

I am part of an architectural forum with a couple of thousand post helping others learn - now I am here to learn and maybe one day as I learn I can offer help.

You have a basic photoshop 101 member at 58+ still willing to learning.

This is my first attempt in photoshop. An elderly wanted a family photo with all current members together. I had to take out some memebers then add others together in the second photo. I added an arm on the girl.

Several members in photo have passed away so this couple asked if I would at least use them as a first to learn on. This the results of my feeble attempt. Keep in mind I have never used photoshop yet I am willing to learn.

Welcome, Jim...

I'm 55 and started hunting/pecking with Photoshop a few years ago, so there's hope for the over 50 set.

It's difficult to assess your handiwork because the image dimensions are pretty low, but from what I can see it appears you're off to a good start.

For future ref. you can use Photoshop's Image > Image Size command (constrain proportions = yes) to lower resolution to ~ 72-90 ppi, followed by File > Save for Web's [Optimize to Image Size] functionality to easily squish down an image so it's less than 100 kb, but still retain larger width/height.

Hope this helps. Look fwd. to seeing more of your work.

Danny
