  • coloration, critique, opinions, improvement?

    Hello everyone! I'm new here, been lurking for about 2 weeks, and decided to get my feet wet. I've seen some really great work on here, some very inspiring! So I thought I'd hang a couple of mine out and see what everyone thought. I'm hoping to start doing this as a income producing business :-) Which I suppose quite a few of us are, from what I've read. Looking forward to becoming an active member of the group!

      maybe they are in the same place where my pictures go when I try to upload them.

      still can't figure out the problem, but haven't done much lately to upload anyway. hope to get back to 'normal'(whatever *THAT* might be) soon.

        Hey Donald, welcome to the crowd! I don't see anything I can criticize! Glad to have you aboard.

          lost...

          Ed_L Thanks for the warm welcome.

          SJM, when you find yours, let me know, because I think mine ARE with them. Lost in uploading......

            Explain what you're doing to upload and maybe we can figure out what's going on. If the files are too big you will get a notice that they are too large but I've never heard of them just getting lost. Do you go to the "Attach file" below your message and hit browse to get your file? If so what happens then and what type file format are you trying to send? Doug can probably help you better than I or anyone else can.

                Donald,
                When all fails, e-mail it to Doug at [email protected] and tell him you had trouble uploading it under the crtiques/opinions forum. He may be able to help you figure out what's going on but if nothing else, he can atleast upload the file for you. Wish I could be better help but you seem to be doing everything right. Lord only knows what's going on.

                  Try this , if you are using PS: with picture open, select "save for web" under file menu, set quality at 30, size 800 pixel,. then hit OK and file it somewhere. Use this photo for attachment. This is the only way I have had consistant success attaching photos to posts. Just a thought....Tom

                    Keep it under 100k, make sure its JPG format and ends with .jpg, attach it, then be patient. There's no little thermometer bar to give you upload status. It just sits there and stares at you until its complete.

                    Some folks claim it won't take long filenames, but I haven't had that problem (but wouldn't hurt to try a brief name)

                      2nd attempt

                      Ok, here we go again. Under 100K jpg file. Lets see if it works this time. Thanks for all the input and ideas on getting this posted. If all else fails, I'll either post the URL or email it to Doug.

                        Looks pretty good to me. Very natural and no obvious matte hanging out. Very good work. Perhaps increase the saturation a little but I'm no expert. Tom

                          You did it!!

                          Donald,
                          I knew we'd get you up and running. Actually you did it yourself. The photo looks great. She seems to fit right into the scene. I wouldn't worry about the coloring but I am not photographer either. I think you did a great job.

                            Tom, DJ: Thanks for the comments. Not 100% happy with it, but makes a nice 4X6 print at 300 dpi..... Going to try out one of the challanges on here :-)

                              Looks great to me. Appears that you're going to be another addition to our growing population of accomplished artists.

                                by blue dog
                                I joined this site a few months ago to try and improve my skills with a goal of being able to make some small living from it. Prior to finding Retouch Pro, I thought that I was ready to go, but a little tour of people's work here convinced me that I had a long way to go.

                                So, its not all...

                                Not sure if this post belongs here or in the Challenges forum, but I'll start here.

                                Hey everyone,
                                It's been great reading the advise and critiques of from others. I finally have some time to upload some pictures that I did for some friends. The images brought to me were only 4x5 (or smaller) @ 72dpi in raw form. The ladies wanted 8x10s made out of these. One is a faint sepia...
