  • Practice Files for Retouching Rules

    This is space for registered users to provide raw and other high-rez files for other registered users to practice their retouching. High quality images only, do not post images for help requests (there are other subforums for that).

    Use Dropbox, Google Drive, or whatever your favorite image hoster might be and start a thread here in this subforum with the link and attach a thumbnail or thumbnail sheet.

    Only link or attach your own images. Do not link or attach anything you don't have permission to.

    No NSFW images.

    If you want to post your retouched version, don't start a new thread, use the original image posting thread.

    Attachments are preferred over links because they won't eventually stop working. Become a Patron if you need more room. But links are fine if that's what you prefer.

    Don't forget to specify your desired permissions (non-commercial, must give credit, only for private practice, etc.). The most common request is "can I use this in my portfolio?", so you might want to mention if that's ok.

    Do not post your email address in the open forum.

    Do not reply to this thread to post your links or work, but questions are welcome.

      by Dalehj
      Hi guys,
      Recently just started working in London has a retoucher and was looking around to see if anyone has beauty images which I could retouch for free for practice and for fun.
      If any one could that would be great.

      by Doug Nelson
      If you're a photographer who'd like to make your work available for our members to practice retouching on, but for whatever reason don't have a method to host the raw files, PM or email me and I'll arrange to host the raw files for you.

      Not seeing SOME images
      by mikajomc
      Recently I noticed I couldn't see someone's image they had posted. I commented on it in that thread. It turns out others could see it just fine. And I saw it just fine briefly. Then a few minutes later it was gone. There is nothing there that even shows an image should be there.
      here's the thread...
