Weekly Photoshop Challenge

benco's Avatargold

If you guys/gals are okay with it, I would like to start a weekly “Photoshop Challenge.” Of course you can use any imaging software.

Each new game will start on Monday’s, when there will be a new challenge image posted in this thread. I don’t want this to get too out of hand with everyone starting to post challenge images of their own, so if you have an image you’d like as the challenge image, or you’d like to suggest an image, please message me.

Your mission is to take the challenge image and modify it, manipulate it, transform it or add it to other images to make a completely new image of your own. Then you can post the result to share with everyone. If you have more than one idea, that’s fine. However, please don’t post more than three.

This weeks image is posted below. If you have questions or suggestions, please message me.

Nobody is up for the challenge, huh? Maybe I should turn this into a contest and award the winner with a box of Eggies. I wonder if EN would allow that.

Love the contest but at least in terms of the second picture, I think you need to start with an image that doesn’t already look Photoshopped. More of a blank canvas if you will. If it was just a Chihuahua for example, the possibilities would be endless. And btw I would personally love a free box of Eggies- great idea!

The is called a “challenge” for a reason. Use your creativity. Have some fun! :)

Thomas, I made an instruction sheet for how to post your picture. I’m sure there are many ways. This is what works best for me. Follow the link below.

Heather, you can use paint.net or other free software.

By the way, I’ve emailed EN to be sure it’s okay that I offer a prize for this game. I want to give away an pack of Eggies or GyroBowl or another product, maybe once each month to the best submission.

I got an “okay” from EN to offer a prize for the best submission to this topic. I wanted to be 100% sure it was an acceptable contest to run. I was thinking about presenting one prize per a month, to the person who has their submission voted on the most. I should probably set some ground rules. Before I do, does anyone want to give some suggestions?

There doesn’t seem to be much interest in this as an actual contest. But I’ll keep the challenge going, just for fun.

Here’s this weeks challenge photo. Good luck!

Thank you Toni, it’s so full of amazing, funny, talented people, I love it here too! Since you’re such a big ben fan be sure to check out the My Nomination for Baruch “Ben” Cohen for Most Popular Inventor Award" thread in the forum… we could have used your insight yesterday but it’s not too late to weigh in!

Ben I’ll assume your lack of response to my e-mail regarding this week’s challenge means that you do NOT recommend that I post it…?

Another week, another challenge! I thought this was a cute pic and it might be fun to play with. Let’s see what you’ve got!
