Yes, another new member.
I am a photographer from Atascadero, Ca. who has had to slow down drastically because of some health issues. I've been doing some photo restoration work and getting by with books like Photoshop Restoration and Retouching by Eastman, and by watching video tutorials. I want to focus more on restoration since I have slowed down my photography. I recently started working on a photograph of a good friend who lost her son and he is in it with the rest of her kids ( a rare get together). It has turned out to be the most difficult project ever. I started a search for help and came across this forum. I'm hopeful to get help with this photo and then participate in the forums to continue learning and growing!

Re: Yes, another new member.
thedonjon, Welcome to RetouchPRO :)
Hope you enjoy your stay here and make lots of friends.
Poke around, have fun! :)

RetouchPRO is a place for help, with abundant offerings of knowledge, opinions, or just interesting thoughts, We are a remarkably troll-free and welcoming group.

Just one thing to help the forum... If you use Photoshop you can post fairly large pictures which are under 100k using the 'save for web' function in Photoshop as described in this thread:
(Size, Quality and/or Format your Attached Images..)
The save for web function in the latest Photoshop is hidden under File>Export>Save for web (legacy)

This thread explains (How to attach Files/Images to your Posts or Threads )

I noticed you are a Patron.... Thank You! If you want to post a larger resolution that is over 1,000K then you can host your image elsewhere and attach a link in the thread, but also, always please attach an under 1,000K version (so the thread remains useful in the future, regardless of external links). (link to the highest resolution.. or the largest size you can upload)

Also, in The Gallery..... RetouchPRO Gallery Image Upload
Allowable Image Types: jpg,jpeg,png,gif
Maximum File Size: No file size limit. Just copy the address of the enlarged picture and enter it in the thread.... (if there is a better way to add the gallery pic to the forum please let us know)

If you are scanning a photo, this thread might be useful : Scanners, textures, scratches, cracks, silvering

Please show us what you are working on.

Welcome aboard ! :)

Sorry I am late in this responce .... just now noticed the "Advice" post

Re: Yes, another new member.
I have learned so much from you tube. I suggest you find a channel by an Indian retoucher called "piximperfect" He has very helpful videos on just about anything you want to learn.
