    Thank you Juliana for that link. It clearly addresses the ethical issues and practices of restoring and preserving historical images and documents.

      Hi Juliana,

      As much as I love a philosophical discussion of ethics, this has already been pretty well covered here.
      However that thread didn't end up drawing up a hard set of rules like these. Although these "rules" seems pretty much common sense, I'm not happy with the wording of number 3.0.3 which considers as an example the mirroring a whole half face to be OK. As anyone on this site who has dabbled in restoration will know such a technique will serve only for portions or items of a face.

        Never possible to cover everthing I guess.
        I got the impression from the read that parts may be drawn from an older source (back when we had to do it by hand ) I've had to shoot, print backwards and do artwork on the very thing they mention...but there was not much of a choice but to do it that way then. They may still want to address the methods of those of us who still do work by hand.

        That very thing is one of the things I am loving about PS by the way

        But hey they said they welcome comments

        ""The sponsors seek comments on these guidelines so that, over time, they may be improved, clarified and grow with the technology and industry thought.""

        I thought people might like to give them some, as a community we may have some good things to offer them. Just like I found some useful ideas in thier materials ...eveything is just food for thought

        And thanks for the link to the other thread...I think I will never get through all the material on this site unless I do not sleep for a week

          ...going to take a lot longer. I've been around nearly a year and it seems I haven't even scratched the surface!

          It would be really interesting to hear some views from some more retouchers around here.

            i've done numerous retouches, restores and photo art on i enjoy it. however, there is something that rankles me just a bit from time to time. someone comes in, posts needing help with an image, goes away for a while, comes back and gives maybe a general 'thanks, all', picks up their...

            Is it worth it?

            All my working life I have been involved in the saving of lives, first as an RN specalist in Critical Care and Emergency Medicine and for the last part as a Firefighter/ALS Paramedic. One of the less "nice" things I and all other Medical and Public Safety folks study is mass casualty managment--triage,...

            Go to this link to watch eagles and blue herons nesting. It should be fun to watch chicks hatch in a few weeks.

            Lets suppose that the local Highschool asks you to give a presentation on "career day" or some such occasion to a group of soon to graduate Seniors. What advice would you give them concerning this line of work as a career. What educational goals should they aim for, what educational level...
