  • Need your help to build a FAQ (yes, you!)

    I've started a site FAQ (frequently asked questions) page up here

    This isn't for retouching questions, but rather questions about how to use this site.

    It's not for public consumption yet, as you can see. What I need are questions. Just type them here in this thread. If you feel you have a good reply, feel free to post it here, too (just make sure we know which question you're replying to).

    Once the FAQ page is reasonably fleshed-out, I'll put it in the menubar. Obviously it will always be a work in progress.

    Using Photos worked on from this site?

    What are my rights in regards to using photos from a Challenge or posted by someone else here on RetouchPro?

    I believe there is a whole thread recently that outlines the answer to this question.



    • #3
      1. How do I get the original images for the challenges?

      2. I can't get this figured out so it looks right - will you do my restoration/retouch/repair for me?

        How do I resize my photos to upload to RetouchPro?



        • #5
          I'm just getting started with Photoshop. Am I in the right place?


          • #6
            I don't have Photoshop. I have a different image editor. Is this OK?


            • #7
              Why does the menu keep falling below my taskbar? I can't get to the bottom of it to click on the menu items.


              • #8
                Why are there two different "Search" options on the menu bar?


                • #9
                  How do I navigate the gallery?

                  Why are there two galleries?

                    Believe there is a thread on this...

                    How do I FTP?
                    What does FTP mean?


                    • #11

                      Another popular one....

                      Can I add my challenges to my portfolio?


                      • #12
                        Can I ask a question without everyone else seeing it?

                        (Explain the Private Message option as well as explaining that most questions and answers help other members that haven't thought of asking that question yet.)

                        How do I attach my image to a post? (Lots of people have trouble their first time -- some because they don't see the "Browse" button to add their image, and others because they try to upload an image that's too big and then get confused about how to backpage to re-upload and/or don't know how to resize [Jak already mentioned that one]. )

                            I've put up some of your suggestions and started writing answers. This is harder than I thought it would be (and I knew it was going to be hard, which is why I've been putting it off )

                            Feel free to suggest answers, as well

                                Do post any type of restoration project here.

                                Do not post images with the file name 'original' or 'before' or 'after'. come on, that should really be a no-brainer. how many others do you think try the same thing? remember, we who are working on your image do not...

                                I just became a new member to this site and I just wanted to say hi to everybody and tell a little bit about myself. I was laid off from my job of eight years and decided to make a career change.

                                I was working as an environmental instument repair technician, after being laid off I found...

                                I would be very interested in furthering my training but have some limitations.

                                So far I have taken the following courses:

                                New York Institute of Photography.

                                Katrin Eismann's Book Photoshop Restoration & Retouching, went through it like a sponge! I still...
