  • old photos needed

    hi all, im new here and am currently working with old /new damaged/scratched/faded etc. photos and am looking for "practice jobs". i also do a lot of image manipulation (add/take away etc.)
    does anyone have any images i could practice on? i could send the result back when im done so you can tell me what you think.
    they have to be moderately high res.

    if so mail me at

    Hi Steve, welcome to RP!

    Have you checked out the challenge section of the site? We'd love to have you participate in those with us. There's also an archive that has a lot of images you might find useful.

    I'm not sure how things work in Germany since I've never been there, but if you have antique shops the way we do here in the US they might be a source for practice images.

    For anyone wanting to send you images who is on a dial-up connection, do you have an FTP site available?

    (Also, doesn't Hotmail have a size limit to the attached files you can receive? I seem to remember something like that...)

      Hi Steve,

      I would definitely check out the challenges! It sounds like you're looking for the types of images under "Restoration Challenges", but you might want to take a look at some of the others too. If you submit a challenge (there is no expiration date on any of them, so just pick one that looks interesting!), you'll get feedback once it's posted.

      Also, check out the archives. There are lots of old photos in there that need various levels of repair as well.

      Hope this helps,

        Welcome aboard Steve. Just in case you didn't know it, Hotmail is restricted to 1.5 meg files (at least for sending), and if you have mail in your mailboxes, it's even less. But like the others have said, the challenges are a great way to learn, and they're the backbone of the site. So jump right in. The water's fine.
