2. Julia, from the academy’s team, writes:

Needless to say, that’s not how I spend my time (retouching snapshots for strangers at no charge), and normally I would disregard this message, but this time (thanks to the Retouching Academy team members, and specifically to Jaron), I took a moment to share the source file in our Retouching Academy Community Group.

I made sure the owner of the photo was ok if my friends touched it up for him, of course.
