    Hello! Someone mentioned this site in a Photoshop newsgroup the other day and I figured I would come have a look. I am impressed! This looks like a great bunch of people.

    My name is Greg Couch and I reside in Asheville, NC. I am an artist by training, but my day job is at a sign company. I started to use a computer for making art about a year and a half ago and have really started to get serious about it within the past six months. I have also started retouching old photos as a way of making some money on the side and have found my drawing skills often come into play in many retouch jobs. So far it has been a lot of fun and I have found that the easiest way to learn is to jump right in!

    I know I can learn a lot from this site and hopefully, contribute a few things here and there.

    Welcome aboard! Glad to have you here. What you heard on the newsgroup is correct. This *is* a great where you can learn much, test out your skills, and meet some nice people in the process.

    Hey, what could be better than that!

        Glad to have you Greg. There's a lot of good people here, and the knowledge base just keeps getting better and better. Everyone is willing to share what they know, and that's what makes it so good.

          Welcome aboard Greg. Glad you joined our little site. I can honestly say, before this site, I had a list as long as my arm of Photoshop sites and forums and I rarely wrote anything because I was afraid of asking dumb questions or in several cases just being ignored. Ths site was so different and I soon found out no question is dumb and although some threads might get lost sometimes, that's a glitch we are working on but usually the members here go to great lengths to help you or just refere you to a place to get help and that alone makes it worth the effort to check in often. Hey it's the cheapest and funnest way to learn image editing I can think of.

          Once I hopped on this site, no ones been able to shut me up.

            Hi my name is Shannon Daly. I am new to this forum, and would like to learn as much as I can, and eventually be able to share what I know with other people someday.

            I have spent a great deal of time on POTN. If some of you are familiar with that site, i am ShannyD there as well.

            It's been a while since I've participated in any forum, years actually so forgive me if I'm a little rusty.

            For the past 18 yrs I have been involved with photographic reproduction in one form or another, most of that time was as a drum scanner operator and during the internet IPO boom...
