    Prize: "Winner's Choice" of any two RetouchPRO LIVE Video Rentals!


    THE RULES:

    1. Contest will run from 1 June to 20 July 2013. Deadline for entries is 6 pm (U.S. Central Time).

    2. I will not answer questions concerning the rules. Interpretation of the rules is as important as execution.

    3. Tasks:
    • Repair the damaged photograph. Retouch as necessary.
    • Colorize the image (note the soldier is a union soldier…that will help in the selection of colors for the uniform).
    • Final image must be exactly 800 pixels high by 600 pixels wide (portrait format).


    4. When you submit your entry put your username in the filename (ie: tpaul.jpg). This is so users can save the images to a local directory and remember who did what--important when it comes time to vote.

    5. Post your entries to this thread. Links will not be accepted. Please restrict your comments, questions or discussion to the Contest Discussion thread. Inappropriately placed posts will be deleted.

    6. Only one entry per person. You can change your entry up to the deadline.

    7. Voting will run from 21 to 28 Jul 2013. There is a separate thread for voting. Only those with entries may vote. Although everyone (contestants and non-contestants) are encourage to leave comments on the entries in the contest discussion thread.
    • Submit the 5 best entries (by artist name) in order, starting with your favorite.
    • You cannot vote for your own image.
    • Once you have voted, do not change your votes. Often the votes are tallied as they come in so any changes in the votes may not be reflected in the final results.


    Finally, please remember that this is a friendly contest and suppose to be a learning experience. Tips and suggestions to help others are highly encouraged. Also please don’t limit your comments to just the top 5 when you vote. Most members are eager for feedback about their images, so remember to help each other out.

                  Still not sure if this is where I am supposed to be to upload a picture but here it is. It is now properly named and sized. I feel like a blithering idiot here. I will get the hang of this.
