Oops, I posted this earlier in the wrong section (Photo Albums) and can't for the life of me figure out how to transfer the info, so am re-posting it here and hope that is all right. (Now, if I can only figure out how to delete the other one! Gentle smile).

Hope others may enjoy looking at these sample of what can be done as much as I did ...

To learn how to age someone: http://www.photoshoplab.com/aging-people.html

(These links came from Kim Komando newsletter I get and are safe).

Kind thoughts,

Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.

Good tutorial MaraM! :thumbsup: I'll try it out on a photo of my wife tonight. You can read about her beating me in the paper tomorrow :flowers: LOL!!! Kidding!

Photoshop is a great program, and does more than what most people think it does. Then with all the 3rd party brushes and filters made for it, it's incredible!

I'm laughing because while your wife may see the humour in 'aging' her with the magical editing, I suspect you'd be on thin ice doing the reverse!

While far from being an expert at photo editing (or sadly, taking photos themselves), I spent a lot of time editing photos for others ... usually elderly people who want to pass on their treasures to the next generation and discover putting them in the 'sticky page' albums oh so many years ago was the worse thing possible - and friends and family that usually want the 'Ex' removed from family portraits, etc. But when I see tutorials on the magic Photoshop can truly do - wow!

Glad you enjoyed the tuturials, stevealmighty and thanks for letting me know,

Mara

You're welcome, Mara.

Right above the list of members online, you'll see the heading The moderating team.
Just click that, pick a Mod, and send a PM.
If another Mod doesn't catch it first, the one you PM'd will take care of it when they come online.

Nice to hear that you do that kind of stuff with Photoshop MaraM! If you ever have any questions, feel free to PM me about them, or you could always post about it and I'm sure that more than just myself would step up to help you out with anything you need :inlove:

I've done quite a bit of photo retouching, both work and "side jobs" alike (gotta love the extra money! :thumbsup: ). Simple things like scanning some 700+ photos to some not so simple things like restoring old family photos that have water stains/fading/color loss/ripped in half etc. etc. It's actaully quite rewarding when people are both excited and happy to see your finished product.

I'll include some links to some stuff that I've done incase you want to look at it (I don't want to keep posting pics and sucking up all the space on the site!!!). :flowers:

Thanks for you kind offer that I may send PM with questions, Stevealmighty, really do appreciate it - gentle hug.

I am very impressed with the samples of photo editing you've done - no wonder the people were happy with the results! :thumbsup: It really is fun, isn't it - and glad to hear you are changing for your talent, too!

While I charge (although significantly lower than stores offering the same service do) when it comes to friends, etc, I must admit I just laugh at myself when it comes to the 'oldies but goodies' that have all those ripped/torn and faded old photos. Started doing one 'free', who told the others in the seniors residences, who in turn couldn't afford to get theirs done professionally - and well, you know the story! Oh well, guess I get my payment through watching the elderly eyes light up when they see their precious memories restored - hoot!

(The stores in this area charge between $125 for 'minor' touch-up work and up to $400 for those more heavily damaged - each!)

Yes, I know the feeling of "free"! It's nice to help, but it can sometimes be time consuming. I've done a lot of stuff for free, and usually I tend to do stuff for those who can afford it (not elderly and not direct family members) for next to nothing. When I did up those photos that I linked to, I did them all in sepia tone, canvas, black and white, color, vignette, tiff (for printing) and jpg (for emailing) all for $50. The cheapest lab she was going to go to would've done it in color only for $150 per photo. Fortunately, I was able to do all the photos in about 2 hours (minus scan time) so it worked out well for me.

The offer still stands, should you ever need help, let me know :thumbsup: :flowers:
