Helllooooo! Im Patrick...
« on: September 18, 2008, 05:43:47 PM »
Hi there peeps,

Im a retoucher/ designer from London UK.  I really like the concept of this project and Im excited to get involved.  Ive been very impressed by some of the entries. Keep up the good work.  With regards to retouching, do we restore to the original quality or clean up the colours lighting etc?

Thanks

Patrick

Patrick,

Welcome aboard. We try to stay as true to the original picture as possible. But it's not necessarily a bad thing if our output is toned better than the original.

Hi Patrick!

Welcome to OPR.  I hope you'll jump in and join us on the forum.  Lots of great knowledge to share and absorb, and I can't imagine that you'll find a better group of people anywhere.  And what's so awesome is that we're EVERYWHERE!

Cheers!

Hi Patrick!

Welcome to OPR! It's great to see you on the forum and it has been so exciting to see all the new volunteers from all over the world. We are a really diverse group here, which makes for some fun discussions. As a retoucher/designer, I'm sure that we can learn a lot from you.
