While techniques and information are within our potential scope, posting family images for their own sake would eat up our server and bandwidth allowance. Plus there are already sites for that.

But I'm still open to how-to and historical information and examples.

I attended a meeting recently of genealogy enthusiasts co-chaired by MaryLynn. There were 40+ in attendance and I can say this was an eager-to-learn bunch when it came to R&R techniques. Among the topics MaryLynn presented were cloning, making selections and using Levels adjustment layers for BW tonal corrections via black/white point settings. It was fun to see so many who were "wowed" by what was possible R&R-wise.

A unique challenge is maximizing readability of (for example) Civil War era documents digitally photographed from microfiche readers.

MaryLynn:

I'm glad you started this thread and hope it sparks interest. I'll be mailing your book today!

To Chris: hahahaha You have a warped sense of humor. How fun!!!

To Doug: I'm sorry if I gave the impression we would be starting our own genealogy society on your site. I meant nothing of the kind. I know that people frequently have old photos to be retouched, have questions about photos, etc. I just meant that when those photos are posted that the person could be encouraged to add genealogical information as well. It would be a simple matter to contact that person via p.m. or email and converse one-on-one. I appreciate this site and have learned so much. I wouldn't want to offend or step out of line.

Janet

Ditto what Janet said. Retouch and restoration, preservation, some historical or technical info should be the primary focus here. This is such a great website I wouldn't want to compromise it in any way.

Thanks Danny for your continued support and encouragement!

Re: Genealogy Forum

Before I asked the question, I did do a search to see if there was a previous discussion. I agree with the above, that retouchpro is not the best place to discuss geneology and old photos, but does anyone out there know of a good geneology discussion site similar to this one for retouching?

While I'm asking...one of video shooting and editing?

I apologize for asking, but if anyone knows I feel someone on this site may provide an answer.

Re: Genealogy Forum

the history forum has one aspect of genealogy, dating photos, so perhaps that would be a good forum to post in regarding genealogy.

also, i dont know how many of you remember deadants, currently a somewhat absent member of RP, but he used to hang out at this genealogy forum: http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index...ard,298.0.html in case you're looking for more genealogy resources.

Re: Genealogy Forum

I've joined RP for that very reason. Access to all the right tools but don't know how to do much more than crop and resize. Will definitely be picking everyone's brain and digging for tutorials. Seeing old images being posted that need to be restored is great. I'll be spending a lot of time here.

Thanks

quoddy
