  • 20+ Years Retouching...

    Hi Gang:

    Here is my online portfolio:

    Please Enjoy!

    hello Glen

    Hello Glen

    Nice to see you on RetouchPRO. I am really enjoying your book. I actually have a test retouch to do at the moment and I am using your book for tips and tricks.

    "Commercial Photoshop Retouching"

              meok, please call me Glenn, no 'MR' I feel so old when people do that, keep it casual! Vol.2, Yikes! it's a lot of work you know. Very nice to hear your're enjoying it. Makes it all worthwhile. Anything in particular you'd like in volume 2?

              >>I agree. His book is stuffed with great techniques and advice.<<

              Thanks Danny, really do appreciate it. Glenn

                Hi Glenn,

                I hope you get to read this.

                I chanced upon this thread and checked out your website, and i really liked your work, so i decided to buy your book.

                It was just shipped yesterday and i immediately started browsing it. Sad to say, i didn't find anything regarding how you polished your ring / jewelries in your site.

                Well, you did show how you removed the reflections on the car, but i was hoping for a more thorough explanation, and was hoping to see how you did the jewelries. Coz that was the thing that inspired me to buy your book.

                Hope you would be able to msg me. Thanks so much!
                Still, its a great book!

                  Great stuff

                  Welcome! I am new here myself. Been retouching for 17 years, so you got a few years on me. i respect you a a superior. Nice website too, first class stuff. Im still working on mine.. little by little. Should have it up in a few months.

                  You know what im wondering.. I have a little bit of a competitive streak in me. Im wondering if we could do a little contest between those who would consider themselves absolute journeyman master retouchers. Post our results and have everyone vote.. Its a good way to have some fun competition as well as learn some advanced techniques we might use. Maybe have a time limit or state how long it took (on the honer system of course). Im sure all the results will be great, but it will be fun to see different execution methods and possibley improve techniques.

                  As long as ego's arent too fragile I think it could be fun. Maybe have different catagories (i.e. beauty, lifesyle, styleized, product, etc.)

                  Yes?? No?? Just curious.

                          Overexposted areas


                          I allow myselft to write you after having seen your book and successful manipulations on digital images.

                          I am just admirative.

                          I would like to ask you some tips about technics to could be applied on images that have parts of white which is a white trousers over exposed in a sunny day...

                          How it possible to get details in overexposed white parts ?

                          It seems impossible...but I saw the example of the coffee cup onto your demo portfolio...and there must be a way !

                          Have a nice day,

                            Your portfolio is impressive. I think I may buy your book with my amazon coupon I just received.
                            I've been using photoshop for10 years. How would you say this book is for somebody who is moderately advanced?

                              Did you stop completly to work with Photoshop ?

                              Did you follow a course in a special school to get strong basis of post-treatment knowledge ?

                              Can you remember me your website please ?

                              Are you leaving in New York ?

                                I first used this site probably 15 years ago but have not posted any retouching for many years. So I was going through my book of sites and thought it''s time to rejoin and do some retouching.
                                Cheers to all

                                Can anyone recommend books, blogs or on-line tutorials on architectural retouching? I know virtually nothing about it & would like to enhance my work. I'll be retouching interior as well as exterior shots.

                                The Art of Retouching and Improving Negatives and Prints by Robert Johnson is readable online. Cool book showing how they did it in 1941.

                                Hi everybody,
                                I recently moved to New York and am looking for entry level retouching opportunities. I have been doing freelance assisting for two years and retouching for one. I would really like to get my foot in the door at a retouching house, but don't think anyone is taking me very seriously...

                                simple to play, but very addicting...
