Most members are eager to hear comments/suggestions about their entries, so please take the time to help each other out.

Re: May 08 Contest Discussion

Paul, couldn't the image be published in some place where people don't have to register?

Personally I hate registering ten times a day to download just a single file from a website and spraying my details out in the world like crazy

Re: May 08 Contest Discussion

I understand your concern, but I have never received any spam from this site.

We have discussed whether we should provide the downloaded image for the contests or have contestants register and it was decided out of courtesy to Stock.XCHNG that we would have the contestants register. Thank you for your understanding.

Patrick, I feel the same way you do about registering, but I signed up with this site a while ago because we needed to download a photo for a different challenge, and I found that it has been very helpful since. They have a real nice selection of photos that you can download for free to use.

Laura, I probably won't be entering this month's contest, but I think the rules said no text. Yours is a lovely image and I'd hate to see you lose votes for jumping outside the rules.

Thanks for telling me. I've already edited my post. Although it is a bit absurd to conceive a book/magazine/etc cover without the title. The title, the fonts, the color, they all have an utmost importance in the final image of the project.

I'm sorry you won't enter and I've also seen that Icramer53 withdrew his/her project.

laura.lala, the contest is about a cover design and not the actual cover. in other words, you arent doing the cover itself but rather the design that will be used for the cover. these contests have always been about the work we do, but also about being able to duplicate instructions, which any retoucher or design artist must be able to do in a professional capacity.

Anyway, with or without the fonts I'm glad to see so many nice covers entering into the contest.

Man, I'm still working on mine, I think we may need to limit Lonk to entering every other contest. Joking, great art Lonk!
