    Re: New guy blues

    Well fellow newbies who will no doubt find this thread long after I have ascended into the skies with the other photoshoppers in Olympus; It took me 15 posts but now I know the name of the program I need, plus that I need to take a class, plus that klev kisses like he lectures (dry with lots of tongue lashing). Now I leave you to start your own quest and next time you see me I will be speaking the technical lingo of the RetouchPro gurus. (that was the gibberish bump klev, you can't tell the moderator on me cause I said he was a well spoken gentleman with a gravely voice reminiscent of Charleton Heston so there).

    Don't bump your thread with random gibberish, and stop trolling.

    The forum software doesn't have any wiki feature, which makes it difficult to actively maintain something along the lines of a new users' resource features. Someone would have to actively manage that through a specific pinned thread, and they would have to keep links up to date.
    Well jeez Klev ~kicks a rock~ you didn't have to call me out in front of the boys like that... we'll always have paris. ~kisses klev passionately~ Where's my gum?

    Re: New guy blues

    I get it now! I visited the challenge area! There is so much fun being had. I think the problem I had was that I wanted to talk to the intellects behind the art and they are rude and petty because artistic people have awful personalities! But the work here is staggering. I haven't learned anything yet (don't worry skoobey, not because of your help. You were great.) BUTTT I am filled with artistic zeal and maybe I am enough of a wet blanket to be an artistic intellect too? -poot

    Re: New guy blues

    The photo I would like to use for my tutorial piece is located in another thread titled "inherited some family photos" it displays two of my family members one riding piggyback on the other's back. Please A. tell me what in professional lingo is wrong with this picture B. Fix it and tell me what you did C. react in an unimaginable way in retaliation to my erratic questioning.

    How do you deal with this guy? He is such an obnoxious pushy person. I would just teach him the basics so he will leave us alone, right guys??

    The Video tutorial was very helpful. The tutorials were A. Broken. B. Redirected to an offsite webpage that no longer exists (or) C. Contains a great deal of internal photo restoration jargon which makes it useless to a beginner. I would like to see the basic tutorials fixed and maybe an index which explains better what these terms mean. Are these basic tutorials merely basic relative to professional I.T./Photographers?

    Thank you Skoobey, for responding. I know it took a great deal of courage to approach me and I appreciate the gesture. Someday when I am photoshop king of retouch pro I will remember this act and reciprocate in like kind.

    P.S. This is the Photo I would like to use as my tutorial piece. Call it a challenge if that makes you technical wizards want to extend and olive branch. These are two of my family members and I would like to make out more of the details. I don't know enough jargon to intelligently ask so if you make a change tell me how I would research that process, please.

    Re: New guy blues

    So I visited the tutorials and found a bunch of broken links and redirects to other sites that don't exist anymore. I found the library and went to the basic materials but without an index which defines each of the industry specific terms I am not sure what I am looking at. My problem is I look at these pictures and I know they don't look good but I don't know how to describe what I am looking at to find the proper tutorial. There are a lot of helpful tutorials on youtube but I really wanted to come to a professional webpage to read interactions to and from newbies and experts. What I found was that the experts ignore the newbies and the experts conversations with one another are like latin. Without knowing any industry specific jargon how does one gain enough knowledge to ask intelligent questions?
