Hi from Michigan Lillee welcome!

You're going to enjoy it here.  Take some time to review a few past posts and look around the forum to get a feel for how things work.  Don't hesitate to ask questions if you get confused and you'll be the one offering advise to the new-comers before you know it.

Hello everyone.
I think working in this group will improve my skills and help those who need their memories saved. I have just requested my first image and I hope I have not bitten off more than I can chew.

Hi Tracey, welcome to OPR from Kansas. Don't worry about biting off more than you can chew as we have all had that happen. Post your before and work in progress and you will get lots of help. For posting your images I like using Photobucket that you see on your left hand side.

Look forward to seeing you on the Forum soon!

Hi and Welcome...
I am also new to this site and hope to help and learn. What a wonderful idea! I am in New York and still hear and see the devastation around me. So glad I saw this on TV and read about it in NAPP magazine..
It will take me awhile to get comfortable before I dive in...

Hi everyone, I'm new here from SE Tennessee. So excited to have others to learn with and from! I've been a professional retoucher years ago when my kids were young (and we were using Photoshop 2!) and now work teaching Photoshop to scrapbookers and community college kids.
I've seen some amazing work here, and am looking forward to a good challenge or two! Anything to give these poor people some memories back. My town was hit by tornadoes 2 years ago, we lost 500 homes, so I feel for anyone who has lost the most precious of possessions, their photos.

Hello to everyone! New to the site and wanted to say how happy I am to be able to participate in this program. Bringing a smile to someone who has lost everything is such a great feeling. Hope I can help and share ideas with other artists here.


Best regards,
