    Photoshop Experts Can Help Katrina Victims

    Operation Photo Rescue (OPR) Needs help from anyone that can lend a Photoshop hand. Many family photo's have been ruined due to hurricanes or earthquakes.

    I know most of the Archinect users know Photoshop. Here's your chance to use it to help repair a family.

    Here's an e-mail from Dave Ellis.
    Thanks for volunteering and providing me with the link to the posting on There's some interesting comments there.

    We're willing to give anyone and everyone a chance to help. Our issues with quality control are very specific cases and not necessarily the norm of what the work that's being produced.

    We don't send the original photographs to our volunteers due to the fragile nature and mold contamination of the images. What we are doing is digitally copying the images with Nikon D2X's mounted on copy stands. After sizing the images, we email them out to our restoration volunteers.

    Like the post on mentioned we're really busy out here this week. In the meantime, I'll add you to our network of volunteers and send you some work as soon as we start distribution.

    Thanks again for stepping up to the cause. Feel free to post this to if you think it will better inform the members there.

    Please have anyone wishing to volunteer to send an email to
