Hi guys!

Found out about this place today through where I've been participating in the NTF for almost a year.

Have very basic PS skills and use mostly curves/levels/USM/healing brush (how did we ever live w/o it?

Looking forward to extending & improving my abilities with the help from RetouchPro.

Wink Hello :)

Hello users of RetouchPRO;

Always wanting to learn something new, how to do something a different way, make doing something easier. RetouchPRO popped up in a search and so I am making the commitment of time to see if this site makes things simple enough (how to do it lessons) for me to learn a little more as I go through life.

Ani (the BOSS, wife, daughter too? ) and I both shoot. We have a little bit of Canon gear and enjoy the time together. We are always looking to improve our photos (Myself more than Ani, who, coming here from Thailand 4½ years ago is still "growing up" to the ways things are done in our home), she plays with PS7.01 on her computer and I use PS CS on mine (yes , his and hers, side by side so we can play footsies too) and our notebook.

We both enjoy taking Landscape photos but want to learn how to take Portrait/People photos...thus here to learn.

That's a little about me (us) as an introduction to this forum board.

As always, thank you all for making learning resources available to us who need them, (all of us!)

Thumbs down Good Day Everyone!

Another hobbyist in the door here of retouch pro, I am very amazed of this site, I've been working with retouching and restoration for quite a while and wished (but never tried) that I could find a suitable place where I can mix up with kindred spirits... I'm so happy I ended up here "I can't even remember how" I'm looking for a very good time. Whoever did this website is really very "kind" ... you'll go to heaven... I promise

Welcome MrChevy. I'm sure you will enjoy learning, creating, and contributing. This is a truly wonderful place for people with the computer/photo/painting bug.

Newbie says Hello to everyone.


I’m learning Adobe Illustrator which I really like what it does and needed some examples of what to do with AI, so I googled and used “Adobe Illustrator challenges” as my keywords and wouldn’t you know it brought me to the ProRetoucher site. What a great find! I have always wanted to make use of what I’ve been learning with these Graphics Softwares and now I’ve found a place to practice and maybe improve my skills.

Howdy from another new member! I joined several days ago and have spent some REAL quality time reading posts and seeing the wonderful work done here. And learned tons of new tricks already!

What a great site and resource.

I am a pro shooter in SoCal, mostly newspaper, but some freelance too, and a couple of retouching gigs.

Right now I am taking it easy because of shoulder injuries and surgeries so that means I can spend time learning new things.

Is it still ok to participate in past challenges?

Hello from another newbie

Hello...I'm Eric, I'm in coastal NC, and I just managed to get retired. So, I'm

I've been shooting for maybe 40 years and been using PS for maybe the last ten. Frankly, I haven't much of a clue how to use it well. Almost all my work involved converting color pix to grayscale for the newspaper my wife and I published, and for other job work in our print shop.

Fact is, I'll probably go back to work in a few months, but right now I am wanting to set up a series of maritime shots I'm taking as sepia prints. I've read and used the info in the tutorials on this site. Unfortunately, I've had only partial success with them. So I'll be posting some questions about that on the appropriate forum. I think some of the problems I had with the tutorial stem from my using PS 5.0...and the tutorial may have assumed 5.5 or above.

One thing I really would like to discuss is the use of a service bureau/vendor to get true photo prints once I get the digital files the way I want them. What would be a good forum to broach that topic?

Just FWIW, I am a dog trainer and a sailor...and I will not admit to any sins beyond those
