So much like the old day quality.

Deke I have been looking for years for a process that made a high contrast image close in quality to the ones I made for 20 years in the darkroom with ortho-litho film.

This technique seems to be very close to the ortho-litho film technique and just about as time consuming. LOL.

Thanks for the tutorial!

It’s a high-quality

It’s a high-quality summary that you have written. There are a number of points however which I believe would do better if you went into a little bit further detail than you have done. simply my opinion,plus I’m not trying to be critical at all. If you do follow this up then I would be interested. Thanks.bridal photography CT

Looking for a Video

Deke (and various Sidekicks, collaborators, conspirators, whomever) Three nights ago I was in the middle of watching one of your many excellent videos then, I was called into another room because a medical emergency. I can not relocate this video; the model resembles Liv Tyler and there were white orchids by her face. Deke had previously spent considerable time outlining with the Paintbrush and continued by demonstrating the new Rotate Tool explaining that it is particularly handy for lefthanded artists. I believe there were also masking/blending demonstrations as well. If you have a spare moment and you're not scratching yor butts (a reference to deke's comment on heavy work load at the end of the CS4 Chanennels and Masks project), please guide me this very interesting video. Oh, ... don't forget to wash your hands! Eric
