Hello community. My user name is Robert Lachance, just like my real name.
I am new to retouchpro. I am a fan of Dan Margulis, and I work mainly in LAB.

I print my pictures at Costco Photo LAB in Boucherville, Québec. I use their profile for (downloaded from Dry Creek Photo) the Nuritsu (may be I spell it wrong?) printer. I get fairly good results and the price is good.

I said I was new, but I joined Retouch Pro in 2005, receiving email threads. So I am not new but this is my first post.

Lonnnng-time lurker, first (uhh, 2nd time) poster! Lots of people are giving in to those "nag" notices they added some time ago.

Have you ever just snooped around the site to see what's here - the email threads wouldn't really give you a full idea of what the site has to offer. Enjoy it, whichever way you choose!

Re: New user.

Signed up with this a couple of years ago. Had a copy of CS3 that I bought off of Ebay for $300. Used it for quite a while til I found out it was a pirated copy from Singapore. (beware). I then dabbled in Linux and Gimp for a while. I then went to a couple of iterations of Paintshop 9 and 10. Never really got serious with them. Anyway one of my rich kids sprung for a legal copy of CS5 recently so I decided to take one more stab at it. I dragged out Katrin Eismann's books and and am up to chapter 4 of masking and compositing. The point when you encounter the dreaded pen tool. I am determined this time. I have a pile of old family pictures that folks have been waiting for me to fix for 3 or 4 years.

Re: New user.

Dave, welcome to RetouchPro. Don't get discouraged with the pen tool - it is one of the more unintuitive tools in the PS suite. And while it is a really handy tool that can be extremely precise, you may find that for retouching / restoring family photos, you may not use it very frequently and can certainly get by without it. If ti doesn't click with you right away just move on to other PS stuff. You can always pick it up later - sort of like learning how to whistle.
Regards, Murray
