Ramblings of an old Doc


Happy Sunday, all and sundry.

I saw this and of course (get it?) signed up and thought about all you guys and girls sitting around with really old photos having great sentimental value, which might be damaged and needing repair.

Sooo…I decided to put this post up. Ben Willmore is a great teacher. He’s a member of the Photoshop Hall of Fame who has taught over 100,000 Photoshop users on five continents…tons of books, and tutorials. He’s probably the best around with “"the “Curves” tool…the strongest in Photoshop.

You can catch the first show on August 27th at 9 a.m. Pacific (noon, EST). There will be a rerun after it’s over (also free). You do have to register, though.
