Baojun Yuan: A 80 Years Old Photoshop Master shows us that we are never too old to do something new
Sometimes you will never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory. Pictures are wonderful things help us to cherish moments with our loved ones who may no longer be with us or bring back memories of our younger days.
but once these photographs get damaged or tear off leaving us saddened. But with the advance technology these damaged photographs can be fixed and can made as new as it was at the time it was taken. But getting these photos repaired can turn out to be too expensive for one’s pocket which is not affordable for everyone.
But a man named Baojun Yuan from China has made this expensive task possible even for a common man. Baojun Yuan is a member of China Senior Photographers Association.
He is a perfect example that shows us that we are never too old to do something new. He didn’t know Photoshop until his was 60 years old, then he started learning the software at old age of 60 and very soon mastered the art of Photoshop.
he learned repairing skills from a teacher and was soon skilled in it . Mr.Yuan himself bought a computer and a scanner and began servicing people for free of cost. In the past ten years, Mr. Yuan has repaired more than three thousand old photos for residents for free.
when people asked him why doesn’t he charge for his services, he humbly replied, “My teacher just taught me how to repair the photo, but he forgot to tell me how to charge.” Maybe the thanks and the smiles on the faces of those peoples who have got their pictures repaired would be equivalent to earning thousands of dollars, that is why he doesn’t charge them.
