Smile Okay, okay!

So I get an email today, reminding me that I'm a member here. When I get to the forum, every page reminds me that I've never posted. HERE IT IS! STOP BUGGING ME!

I've been a member for over five years, and I've found the forums to be a valuable resource, but I've never felt I had anything to contribute. Photo restoration/retouching/manipulation is a hobby of mine, but I can't seem to do enough of it for it to become second nature. I look at photos I manipulated a few years ago and think, "How did I do that?"

I have a little more time these days, so maybe I can start doing things and having them stick in my feeble mind. Maybe I'll even be able to make some contributions around here. (Most likely not, however. If you people were not as friendly as you are, I would expect a lot of reactions to my work along the lines of "Oh. Isn't that nice? ")

Don't let that bother you. I look at features on this very website and think "how did I do that?". I look at old photos and don't even remember doing them, let alone how I did it. Mind of a goldfish, me.

But I'm glad to see my nagging works

And I thought I was the only one who has to figure things out from scratch everytime I do something. LOL

You were supposed to disavow all blame and instead put it on the software! C'mon, everybody knows that!
