I've been thinking of adding a feature to my blog....Photoshop Friday. I'm thinking I might want to either feature photoshop tools and/or do sample edits or photo fixes and do mini tutorials on them.
Would any of you guys be willing to help me out with that? What tools/techniques would you want me to talk about and show how they would be used in every day photo processing. I'm also looking for problem photos that I could use to do photo fixes and have permission to post in my blog...things like color casts, stray hairs, clone jobs, etc....
I'd always give photo credit if desired.

sounds like an awesome idea
I have the worst colour cast photo you can use (do you remember my photo of Evan on our deck under the stupid green roof haha)

I think that would be great. I will be stalking your blog to get those mini tutorials.

I've always said you should teach photoshop, Photoshop Friday sounds like an excellent idea.
Topics... colour cast is definitely top of the list, effective cloning, skin tones(I so do not get that), head swapping.... for me the list could be endless.

Great idea! Just off the top of my head, these would be more simple ones:
-How to sharpen for print and web (and maybe masking in what gets too sharpened)
-How to batch process
-A crash course in ACR (like what each slider does, how to make presets)
-Multiple skin tones in one photo
-How to smooth skin/blemishes/under eye circles without the 'airbrush' look
Hope those help! Maybe your readers could comment as well and you would see what some of their most common problems are.
Is it for fellow photogs or clients? I was going to do it once, but someone asked me if I really wanted to be showing my clients how to do editing, or what it takes to do my job... then I was self conscious to do it!
love the idea! feel free to cruise my flickr for any pictures you want to play with.
adding to Erica's list, I'd love to see:
finding the right WB/temp
knowing when it's right to mess with the eyes - and what method adds to great eyes without making them look freaky (I hope that made sense)

PS- I just went to your blog and it is beautiful! You're really good at composition with close up and headshots - I need lots of work at that! What's your favourite lens right now?
