    Ah, finally got the chance to try Jim's tutorial. It worked real sweet! If anyone's having a problem with hair, I suggest you try it. The one I worked on was a little different from the one shown in the tutorial, so I made some minor changes. I wound up using the red channel instead of the blue because the blue channel made everything kind of blend together. The red channel gave me what I needed. The hair in the mask became white, so the alpha channel needed to be inverted. Thanks again Jim - it's a keeper.

    Hi Jim,

    I thought that tutorial was great. It got printed out right away for safe keeping. Admittedly, I haven't checked out all the tutorials (I know I should have by now), but it's time to do that. Thanks very much for making it available for us.

    Channelmixer not accurate?
    by limaze
    Hello RetouchPRO users, i am a little confused about the Channelmixer in Photoshop. In its options, when i chose Monochrome and set BLUE to 100%, the other channels to 0%, i expected it to result in the same picture i get when looking at the normal Blue channel from the Channels tab. But those two are...

    by albatrosss
    I was using Window>Arrange>New Window to Use With Tutorial to smooth skin. I found that when I turned off the eye on say the Red and Blue Channel and used the Green Channel, the RGB image would reflect any changes I made with the Clone Tool. If, however, I simply selected the Green Channel,...
