here's some images i'd like to see if they can be made to look higher quality than the camera they were shot with.

just hoping to get a few images cleaned up for my friend.  nothing major... only make them look better quality.

i'm new to taking pics and really want to see how much the camera makes the difference in images.   like for example... can i just spend less on a camera and more on retouching?     i see amazing images shot with iPhones... then i see crappy images shot with a Canon 5D.  so, this is kinda the reason for this little experiment.   so, pick your favorite.

thanks.

Use Wavelet Decompose plug-in in GIMP to soften creases on face, GIMP's IWarp to lift lower lip and eyes, and some dodge & burn around hairline. Also, a color layer, with color over the face and hand, was added to even out the skin color a little.

You have a commercial adult paysite and have started multiple threads for retouchers to work on images for free under the guise of being educated on the process.

And they do it.

I'm interested in learning more about photographing nudity in a XXX setting, do you think you could help out and pose for free and I'll use those images in a commercial endeavor?

God Bless MM.

look again. i've had a website for a few years now but it's never been a paysite or had a members area.  it's always been something i've been meaning to do... just never got around to it.

i'm sure it never occurred to you that i am actually trying to learn how to do this stuff myself.

Learning is fine. That's what the threads are for. A better way to learn is what most people do. Post an image you admire and ask the pros to deconstruct the image so you can learn the steps behind it.

Posting 20 poorly lit snapshots and starting multiple threads asking people to "make these look better" isn't educating you on how to a) use image editing software or b) how to effectively use post-production techniques.

It's just taking advantage of a Retouching Forum to get images processed for free.
