  • Re: What's in your retouching toolbox?



    You've got a point. I hadn't thought of this site as being international, but looking at other locations I see that it is. And looking at other posts I see I'm way out of my depth here, a rank amateur among professionals....

    Sorry -- DE is an abbreviation for Delaware, a state in the US. MI is an abbreviation for Michigan, also a state in the US. That's the United States of America, just south of Canada.

  • Re: What's in your retouching toolbox?

    I'm still way back on PSE 9, and find it does most of what I need to do, but at the same time I realize it's time to move ahead. I'm not a professional photographer but a volunteer at a museum. I'm mainly concerned with preserving old photographs,...

  • Re: Removing print stuck to glass plate negative

    Same as zea14, I've been copying glass negatives ca. 1910 for a museum, and a number of them have paper stuck to the emulsion. Soaking doesn't work, takes off the emulsion. I've had some success "transparentizing" the paper by...

    When I tried to post the longer reply, got a message to refresh the page and log in again; apparently had timed out. And the message was gone.

  • Re: Copying glass negs.

    Bob, I wrote a long reply about this, but it disappeared. Bottom line, a very good way to do this is with a DIY lightbox and a good camera; I've had excellent results. Will provide information if you wish.
