    Please show your support for and RetouchPRO LIVE by becoming a Patron.

    Running this site and the RetouchPRO LIVE shows requires me to pay pretty hefty recurring monthly server and licensing fees. I pay them out of my own pocket. RetouchPRO LIVE ticket fees used to defray the costs, but that model stopped working. Now I've moved to a free model and my reserve is rapidly disappearing.

    Patrons get some "thank you gifts" for their support. Patrons don't see ads and have 10x the file attachment size. They also get a "Patron" label under all forum posts so everyone will know how generous you are.

    You must be registered to become a Patron. If you are registered, click here to go to the Patron page. If for whatever reason you don't want to register, or can't justify the full Patron amount (or want to support even more), you can donate any amount towards the cause via Paypal to "paypal AT"

    Thank you in advance for your support.

    by Doug Nelson
    We all have a rough idea about what needs to be done for "beauty" retouching. But what if the desired look is a bit more abstract, such as "benevolent authority"? This is what commercial photographer Erik Hattrem had to wrestle with when he was commissioned to photograph Norway's...

    The End of RetouchPRO LIVE???

    I've got some serious thinking to do about the future of RetouchPRO LIVE.

    Reasons for not guesting on RetouchPRO LIVE
    by Doug Nelson
    I thought you might enjoy reading some of the reasons I've been offered for declining my offer of appearing as a guest artist on RetouchPRO LIVE.

    I suspect many of them are actually tactful ways of saying "who are you, go away, stop wasting my time", but still I thought some...

    RetouchPro Live from outside USA thoughts
    by cruel.frames

    I am in Germany and as many other non-american members would love to watch some of the past shows. I know that YouTube offers the rentals only for the US and that you can't do anything about that. Fair enough. But is it really YouTube the only option? I doubt that.
