If someone comes up with one I like, I'll shamelessly steal it and put it on the front page.
Retouch Pro is a group of interested people who comprise novices and more experienced to professional contributors who show few limits in teaching and sharing with others. We share how to retouch/restore/artify digital projects whilst assisting inexperienced photographers too.
The forum acts as a nuturing learning environment where users share their techniques, methods and interpretations as well as convey information relating to software and hardware advice, releases and issues.
No question asked here is a "dumb" question, as the contributors to Retouch Pro are a very giving community and even the simplest of advice or request for help will be met with enthusiasm by the other contributors.
The user contributed tutorials are also often referred to in posts and provide an invaluable resource for aspiring retouch/restoration artists as well as more seasoned retouchers, who just need another technique
