        What we’ll simulate is a combination of wash, glazing and dry brush technique. [details]

          Convert RGB to a Grayscale??

          I used Technique post by Antonio in watercolor tutorial

          When convert RGB to Grayscale My photoshop tell me if i want to flatten image. If i do the layers transform in one and stay black and white, if not is the same i have two layers but in black and white.
          Note, if i was to flatten image when i convert inverse Grayscale to RGB,i have
          a black and white photo.

          What can i do?

            Armando -- That's right. Convert to greyscale and flatten so that you get one black and white layer. Then clean up if necessary (only really necessary in areas you're planning to leave white in your finished image). Then convert back to RGB. Your image is in RGB mode but at this point is still black and white - but you're about to paint using the Art History brush and the History brush, which by default base themselves on the default snapshot of what the image was like when you started. Just try it - you'll be surprised!

            The only case in which this won't work is if you save and close the image in the middle of the process and then reopen it. Then you'll lose the snapshot and it will all go horribly wrong.

              Watercolor Tutorial

              I realize this was posted a long time ago. The print feature is excellent, however, when I tried to print, nothing in a box showed up as a picture or screen capture so I could not print it. It just showed up as a blank box. I tried a couple of different tutorials & it was the same thing.

              Is it something with my settings or with the site? Everything shows up well for viewing on the site. I would love to print some of these.

              Thank you for your help.

                Hi Bonnie:

                Sorry you're having problems. Take a look at this thread...
                http://www.retouchpro.com/pages/red-x.html

                Could be a browser or security setting of some sort.

                Another possibility:
                * Go to the main forum page (click here )
                * Scroll to the bottom
                * Logout from RetouchPRO
                * Login again

                Could be that since you just registered, that the registration didn't kick in properly.

                ~Danny~

                  I have exactly the same problem. It doesn't matter whether or not Zone Alarm is running, all of the pictures are the dreaded "red x", before I installed Zone Alarm, afterwards, and with Zone Alarm configured for Retouch Pro. It also doesn't matter which printer I use. I've been a registered member for a long time, so that's not it, either. The images show up on the screen, but not in the printout. Does anyone have any ideas?

                    Images show up on screen, but not when you print...that's an interesting problem.

                    What operating system are you running and version?

                    What pop-up blockers, fire walls etc. are you running other than zone alarm?

                    Any other symptoms like only half the page printing?

                    Does this only happen when you use the print option on the tutorial page vs. using the file>print option?

                      Prints fine for me. Missing images are caused by outside linking, so it sounds like you're trying to print from a locally stored version of the page (that won't work).

                        I'm running Windows XP, IE 6. I use Zone Alarm and Earthlink's pop-up blocker, but the same thing happens when both are turned off. Also, print from the page, or use the print option on the page, doesn't matter. I empty my Internet cache on a regular basis also. This is the only site where the pictures disappear!

                        Here's a screen capture of print preview after using the print option on the tutorial page.

                        Thanks for the help,

                          Here are a few suggestions:

                          1. Verify Sufficient Free Space on Your Primary Hard Disk
                          To check how much free disk space you have on your hard disk drive, follow these steps:

                          Double-click My Computer on the desktop.
                          Right-click your primary hard disk (for example, drive C).
                          Click Properties.
                          The amount of free disk space should be 20 megabytes (MB) or more.
                          There is no minimum amount of free disk space required to run Office programs. However, most computers do require a certain amount of free space (usually around 20 MB) to open, close, and save files and to print documents.

                          If your hard disk has less than 20 MB of free disk space available, you may consider removing unused data files or temporary files or programs. After you have freed 20 MB or more on your primary hard disk, restart Windows and re-open the file.
                          2. Java:this may be a long shot, but some forums discussed this as a fix

                          If you are experiencing red x's in Internet Explorer Windows it's a good chance that you don’t have the latest Java Software installed on your machine. Go to java.com to download it.

                            Patricia:

                            re: How come you're still having problems?
                            Who knows? It's no doubt something small, but sometimes this tech stuff goes way over my head.

                            Here's a not-so-elegant, but functional workaround.

                            Download the 5 attachments from this post and save on your hard disk. I downsized each of the high-res tutorial images to 7" wide and ~ 200 ppi, so they should fit onto an 8.5"-wide page and print reasonably well.

                            In the next post is the text of the tutorial. Open it, copy/paste into your word processing program, then insert each of the five images into it as indicated. You'll be in control of your own destiny.

                            Sorry 'bout all the hassle. It shouldn't be this difficult.
