    Webinar Suggestions.

    Hello Folks!

    I'm glad that so many of you are getting something from my webinars. Always happy to hear that "open thinking" is occurring.

    In the future, I have plans for additional Calculations chows, Apply IMage shows, Gradient Map shows, and eventually.......the custom filter...

    Of course I am going to continue to do Beauty Retouches for all as long as they are needed.

    But, please feel free to give me ideas for what you want ME to delve into for you in the hope of opening any doors that are locked etc.

      I'd like to see something extracted that has a messier background, something not high end but more like someone a little above the average person might take. It seems to be the little things in a messy background that gives me the most trouble.

      I know, I explained that about as clearly as mud; but I hope you understood. Not all of us are high end retouchers; and most of us will not ever be. But we all have what could be a beautiful portrait if it had that extra pop of another background.

      Your shows have helped me not only with portraits, but with scenics and macro work. I have learned so much. Calculations is another step that takes me on the path to being a better "fixer" of blemishes. Now if I could finish climbing the hurdle of messy background, I'd feel much better.

      Thanks again for sharing your expertise and for being a good, patient teacher.

      Hi Janet

      Do you mean removing the background and replacing it with another one?

      Or making the existing background and enhancing that?

    Complicated Background Extension

    Hey guys, my first time posting on this forum.
    I've messed around with this image for quite some time and I have no where else to turn to.

    So originally this image was in a portrait layout and I want to switch it to landscape. So I've copied and pasted to extend the background....

    Background Colors
    by wmchauncey
    I do a lot of studio desktop stuff against a black background...simply because they have a very dramatic appearance when displayed on the net. I have not printed any of them and I have this concern that they might resemble the old, IMHO, tacky look associated with velvet prints from years past....

    Background Ideas

    Any ideas on what to do with the background of this image?


    In Progress Edit

    It's really distracting. I want to keep the setting true to the original, well rather as realistic as possible. Like I don't want to place the subjects in an entirely different...

    Background BEGONE!
    by Mica
    I got lucky and took this adorable image of my son and a little girl kissing. Really a shame my husband and his friend's laps are so prominent in the background. I've done some blurring and burning (conjures up a bad image!). I cropped and did some clone stamping. Some it came out okay, but the burning...
