Amazing...that's one way to 'get out' before your time is up.

Makes you start wondering what other rocks unturned there are out there.

doug,

and with that new selection software coming out soon (i think it's out on the mac already), you may be seeing more of these sites/businesses. sorry, i forget the name of the software. there is a link in one of the threads here...somewhere.

edit: this is the program i was talking about: http://www.vertustech.com/index.htm

Also the next version of The Gimp will have the SIUX algorithm for extraction. There is a video example here.

interesting, pierre. doesnt look as good as the other, but am glad to see the Gimp moving ahead. this SIOX selection looks somewhat similar to psp's 'edit selection', different, but some similarities.

thanks!

Craig

doug, et al,

here's another imaginative business i found today while looking for mermaid pictures: http://www.isamaria.f2s.com . and whereas this isnt necessarily a straight 'retouching' business, it still somewhat fits along the retouchpro lines. look under the 'commissioned portraits' section.
