Restoration & Retouching' and www.digitalretouch.org (content, images,

This book was built around the techniques that I have
taught over the years to the numerous students in my digital and creative
imaging classes. I hope that this book can help you teach Photoshop
as well, and that the examples and images I have provided will help
you to learn and demonstrate the concepts and techniques of retouching
and restoration. As a teacher, I'm sure you know how much time and work
is involved in creating exercises and preparing materials that fulfill
all the needs of a classroom. I ask now that you respect my work, and
that of the many other professionals whose work I've featured in this
book, by not photocopying pages of the book, distributing any of the
images from the Web site, or otherwise reproducing the information,
even if paraphrased, without proper attribution and permission. Of course,
if each student owns a copy of the book then they can freely download
and use the images from the website and in the classroom. For information
