  • Lasso Tip

    I feel a bit like a traitor.

    I got the encouragement and advice to quit psp and get into PS7 from this forum.
    Now I find I'm much more active in dpreview forum.

    I think it's because the threads there are all in one place so that it's easier to follow threads I'm interested in, and there is more activity. People there are also very friendly, though retouchpro is more like a family.

    I do intend to get involved in challenges here, when I'm a bit more proficient.

    In any case I discovered something that was a HUGE help to me, I posted it at dpreview, and also wanted to let my photoshop family know about it. It might be obvious to experienced users but was quite a revelation to me.

    The lasso tools are very much easier to use when you slow down mousespeed in windows, I guess macs can also specify mouse speed. The slower the smoother and more acccurate the tracing.
    Probably painting in quickmask mode is also more accurate with a slower mouse, I haven't tried it yet.

    this post is not by "help"

    there is no one registered here called "help"

    I recently couldn't access my regular sign-in when I changed my e-mail address and had no way to contact Doug, so I reregistered as "help". I guess I didn't clear my cookies since then and forgot to logout and relogin.

    Still feivel

      Hi all,
      I'm ecstatic to have found this site. I'm trying to get into Photo Restoration and don't have a clue at what I'm doing. I just finished a quicktime tutorial from, but was a bit disappointed in it. I did get the hang of the patch and heal tools from it though. I've got Katrin...

      I've been on here for some time and the more I watch the more discouraged I become. Mind you that doesn't mean that I'm going to stop trying but everytime I see your pictures come out so well, and you talk about this techique or use of that tool, I think that I may never come to a place of excellence....

      Advice for a Beginner
      by Jay322
      While working in the production side of a magazine I became interested in the retouching aspect. I know the basics of photoshop and also took a level 1 class. I really would love to learn more but don't know what the next step for myself should be. So I guess what I really want to know is how you...

      I'm new here and am a bit confused about certain things.
      In many postings you Doug Nelson stands as the author, but
      when i look i can see that in fact other people started the thread.
      So why do you stand as the author?
      Also in some cases it says there are 0 replies, but when...
