My name is Rich Neil and I had "stumbled" upon this group when I saw a link on a Photoshop or plugin web site. Sure glad I did!
A little about myself...I have been using (and building) computers since the "ms-dos" days and have always had a keen interest in computer graphics, digital art and image enhancement. I am a self-taught Photoshop user and use it extensively along with plugins from Alien Skin, Topaz and onOne.
I have been scanning and working with my personal images as well as those from my family and friends for several years now and I would like to take the next step and offer my services professionally to a broader range of clients.
I am currently in the process of setting up a web page to do just that and I look forward to sharing it with the group when it's complete.
I am so happy to find a group of individuals that share my common interests in photo restoration, retouching and digital art. I look forward to tapping into the vast knowledge and experience of the group members for the particular challenges that I face, the opportunity to share my insights and to become a productive member of the group.
