RetouchPRO Tutorial Contest, October 2006

Rules
  • Write a tutorial illustrating how to do a basic digital imaging task in your preferred software
  • Publish it via the RetouchPRO tutorial publishing system, in the Basics category
  • Give your tutorial a clear title. Include the software name and version in your title
  • Include a summary of what your tutorial covers in the field labeled Brief Description
  • Tutorials with a forum thread dated between October 1 2006 and October 25 2006 are eligible (created automatically when you first publish)
  • Voting will be from October 26 2006 to October 31 2006
  • Voting will be via PM to Doug Nelson.
  • Vote for a single tutorial by its title and author
  • You can publish more than one tutorial, but you still only get one vote
  • You can't vote for your own tutorial
  • You must participate in the contest to vote
  • Moderators are allowed to participate
  • Since this is our first tutorial contest, rules might get tweaked until October 7, 2006

Prize
The author of the winning tutorial will receive a copy of AKVIS Sketch, donated by AKVIS
"AKVIS Sketch is a plugin for conversion of photos into pencil sketches and watercolor drawings."

Voting Criteria
How you vote is totally up to you, but here are some suggestions:
  • Creativity - How fresh is the approach?
  • Clarity - Is it easy to follow?
  • Originality - Has the topic already been done to death?
  • Relevance - Is the topic useful to a typical RetouchPRO member?
  • Accuracy - Is the information presented correct?
  • Ambition - Does it show thought and effort, or was it just slapped up to enter the contest?
  • Writing Talent - Be forgiving here. We're not all Hemingways (or even native English speakers)

Disqualifications
  • Use of copyrighted images (USA copyright laws)
  • Use of likenesses without permission
  • Plagiarism (includes self-plagiarism)
  • Links outside of retouchpro.com

Tips
  • Read the "Important" threads at the top of the RP Tutorials forum
  • Write your tutorial offline, then publish
  • Publish with a note (not in the title) that you're not finished until it really is finished (don't forget to remove the note before the deadline)
  • Use plenty of screencaps and illustrations. Use circles, arrows, and other highlighting techniques
  • It's up to you whether to publish early or wait until the deadline. But if you publish early, you'll get feedback and can make changes, which is fully within the contest rules
  • Read our existing tutorials for ideas on formatting, etc.
  • Discuss this contest in this thread. Discuss an individual tutorial in its thread
  • Don't reference the contest in your tutorial
  • Subscribe to the What's New forum. That's where future contests (if any) will be announced

Oh Cass that is quite a problem ... just make sure not to use anything you find in your computer that says "My Documents - Already submitted to RP" or something like that ... Hope that helps ?
Sorry had to say it , your remark was very funny

No self-plagiarism????

Does that mean that I can't say what I've already said? :-)

Precisely

Actually, it just means don't paste in something you've already published somewhere else. The goal is original tutorials, not to collect previously-published tutorials.

Tangent:
It occurs to me that is someone were to volunteer to reply here posting the URLs of tutorials submitted within the contest period and edit it occasionally to update the list, that would be a very good thing

Entry: Restoring an old Photograph.

Hi everyone.

Here is my entry.
http://retouchpro.com/tutorials/index.php?m=show&id=255

This took ages. I hope it’s useful. I would be most grateful if you would check my method / numbers / logic / English etc.

Some of the screen shots were difficult to capture. Holding down the left mouse button and the Alt key AND trying to get a screen shot.

I have just tried to add my pictures. It says ‘Uploaded Successfully’ but the picture is not there.? I am using Firefox. Should I try IE?

Ken.
