    Thanks for your time, Damien. I'll send you a photo of the painting when it's finished. 😊

    HI Damien --- Yes, and that is EXACTLY the problem I found when I made my first fumbling attempt to mask her in order to create the background. You are quite right, I don't have the necessary Photoshop skills yet. But can I ask, why would it be easier with a solid color than it would be with an artistic background?

    HI Damien --- Thank you for following up. A solid black background on a painting 60cm by 90cm might be a bit overwhelming. I have a couple of months before I have to start painting it, so I might see if I can experiment in Photoshop with alternative backgrounds. The trouble is I'm so inexperienced at this stage that I have no confidence. But I will give it a go. (I am learning a new Method of painting and this method requires that I paint exactly what I see for the first few paintings, otherwise I could simply experiment when I'm painting.) Thank you for your time. I know how busy you must be, and I appreciate it.

    HI Damien - thank you very much for your time. I'm not sure about the background but it's not such a big problem.... It's a shame about the focus but there's nothing I can do about it now. Kind regards Dianna

    Are you able to help me improve the focus of this photograph? The photo was taken 35 years ago and the focus is terrible. The background is also terrible. Is there anything you can suggest? Kind regards Dianna Cameron

    Yes, of course, I apologise. Sometimes for me it's too confusing having just one thread!

    I feel terrible, I'm wasting your time - that color is not even close -- I might have to accept the fact that the color has to remain the same for the next painting. Is there anything you can do with Jeana in terms of focus and background? My Photoshop skills are so limited....I know I can change the background but I'm so clumsy and inept at this stage. Thank you very much for your time and I truly apologise for wasting your time Kind regards Dianna

    I'm sorry but I think that color might be far too bright... the color has to be compatible with the image overall.

    I'm quite uncertain really, but maybe something like: H337 S62 B70 R179 G69 B112 I'm quite out of my depth here. Kind regards Dianna

    No, I mean actual painting with oils paints. I need a good source image to use.

    Hi Damien Some advice would be appreciated. Can I get some help editing two images? I’m too inexperienced at this stage. LUCIA: I have just spent months painting Lucia for a friend. I am now about to start a second one. I would prefer the second painting to be a brighter pink. I could just change the color when I’m painting it but because I’m learning a new painting method from markcarder.com, I must not alter anything. Is there anyone who could deepen the color of the dress without destroying the skin? Thank you Kind regards Dianna Cameron Abc123@ozemail.com.au
  12. I have only enrolled for the bridge class. Got sick. Won't be able to concentrate until New Year. In the meantime would like to scan lots of old photos. Can someone please tell me what the best format and resolution to use? thank you
  13. Hi, I'm wondering if anyone can tell me the best way to clean print negatives. I just received my Epson Perfection V550 today and I want to start scanning but lots of the negatives are in a bad way. I have some isopropyl alcohol. Thank you Dianna
