My son attends The Art Institute in San Diego and one of their assignments was to list three sites that had useful Photoshop tutorials that they would bookmark for future use. His choices included retouchpro.com.

Ken, I don't know what might have driven up the numbers so suddenly - but I'd guess it's them BOT's at work again.

Update on the numbers, there are now 182 guests. Flipping through the pages reveals that 90% (or more) are "Yahoo! Slurp Spider", with only a few instances of GoogleBot and MsBot.

Don't know what that means, but the traffic is now coming from Yahoo and not from Google as T had reported earlier in this thread.

Thanks Rô

It seems that moderators can get more info. I got “you do not have permission to access this page”
I did notice that none of the 800 joined RetouchPro.

Nanis. It’s nice to hear that they found RetouchPro useful.
RetouchPro is also listed as a great web site here.

That's a little disheartening to me. Even though I haven't posted much lately, I thought maybe word got around that I was back!

(Using mod superpowers) I heard the bots whispering to each other, and couldn't make it out - something like "dzbak", "dzbak", "dzbak".

Now I got it! "Ed's back"

Time Zone

With a bit more knowledge of time zones could it be worked out where about the "extras" are from ?
For example it say's most where on line at 4 a.m. well it probably wouldnt have been the UK or neighbouring country's as we would all be tucked up asleep in bed.
Ed what is your time zone ?

First post

One possible explanation----someone just posted a link to this forum at photography-on-the.net where I am one of the moderators. We have about a gazillion members, but we're primarily a digital photography forum, and don't have a lot of discussion on post-processing.

I've been looking for a good online PS resource, and this looks like it might just fit the ticket. I might even shrink my 150 X 150 pixel avatar, although it's probably not going to look like much at 50 X 50.

This looks like a very good group, and I'm eager to spend some time poking around in here when I get back home. (On the road right now).

The above note appeared on page two of a Yahoo! search of "photo retouching".

Also, I found RetouchPro when searching for "design" sites through Stumble Upon a search portal ... was love at first sight
