  • Site Update 08/02/10

    We recently passed our 1-year anniversary for the RetouchPRO LIVE shows. And we just did our 52nd live show this past weekend.

    The great feedback and continued good turnout for these shows has been heartening. I'm pleased to be able to continue offering these peeks into professional life that aren't available anywhere else, short of an internship.

    I have some exciting new presenters lined up for August and September, and we of course I also have new shows scheduled with your favorite guest artists. Make sure you're subscribed to our email list so you don't miss any of the announcements (make sure is whitelisted in your spam filter).

    I scored an unexpected (really unexpected) victory in my negotiations with YouTube, so I was able to drop the rental prices for previous RetouchPRO LIVE shows by a considerable margin. Of course, the rentals are no replacement for attending our live shows, where you can have your questions answered by our guest artists.

    The YouTube Rentals are still in beta, so are limited to US viewers. But I'll use the email list to notify everyone as soon as the beta lifts.

    After a short break, our Retouching Contests have started up again. Our August contest just started today. There's a separate email list just for contest notifications.

    If you notice any Challenge entries in the wrong category, use the "Report Photo" link to let me know where it belongs.

    The biggest news is that I'm trying a new provider for international rentals of our previous RetouchPRO LIVE shows, and it's looking good so far.

    Our RetouchPRO LIVE shows are a continuing success. I already have shows scheduled thru October. New presenters, new topics, and our current presenters returning to provide even more insight into professional-level retouching (and a few more basic shows for those earlier on in their career path)....

    We have an entirely new section to our site to announce, the RetouchPRO Library. This isn't another list of links, it's a database of information chosen for it's usefullness for our members. Our librarian, Kraellin, has been hard at work putting in categories and stocking it with links. But that's just...

    Happy new year to everyone!

    Our RetouchPRO LIVE shows continue their popularity. 2011 will bring several new presenters, along with all your returning favorites. And I do listen to your presenter suggestions and topic requests, so post them in the RetouchPRO LIVE forum.

    If you can read this, you're on our new dedicated server!

    You should notice everything is a lot snappier from now on, and no slowdowns or downtime (so they promise me).

    I know, I know, I said I was going to move the servers this weekend, and that it might mean days of downtime....
