Newbie Intro

The only Intro thread I could find was closed. So I guess I'm starting a new one.

Mr. Lizard is also known as Chuck.

I am a 51 year old Instructional Designer. In real words, that means that I design training for people in a corporate setting. I sometimes have to alter images of compter screen shots to eliminate customer data. That sorta got me started. Then a coworker challenged me to make funny "photoshops" and began to teach me some of our application's features. I kept teaching myself from that point. I know a little bit and need to learn more.

Why? Well... I have some old family photos that need retouching and I am so afraid I'll mess 'em up. So... TEACH ME!

Chuck

Re: Newbie Intro

The very first thing you need to learn is how to make backup copies and how to edit non-destructively. In other words, never work on original images and learn to use your software so that any changes you make are non-destructive. That way, it won't matter what mistakes you make, they can always be reversed or corrected.
