    Calling All Photoshoppers!

    I'm throwing down a challenge.

    The challenge is to photoshop up the October 2002 cover of planning magazine. Are you up to it? Post your example(s) Planning magazine cover here and we will post a poll on August 19 allowing the members to vote for their favorite bit of publishing.

    There are two categories. 1. humorous versions using the current "design" of Planning magazine.

    2. Proposed alternative designs you feel Planning should consider.

    First time Photoshoppers welcome.

    October or August?

    We are in August already. Thus, I eliminated it because it has passed. I avoided September because many with little sense of humor may find it offensive for us to play with the first aniversary of the terroist attacks. I thought October because of the twisted nature of the All Hallow's Eve celebrations. This may give first time photoshoppers a bit more room for experementation. Thus, October was my choice. But, people are going to do what they want to do. So if you must - August would be fine. Hell, for that matter - do the Stardate 126234.5 issue.

    So you'll post the poll on Oct 19th not Aug 19th then...

    ????

    What is so difficult to understand here?

    Photoshop a cover in the next few days or weeks and on Aug 19th I'll post a poll. I suggested that people photoshop a particular month to satisfy my sense of uniformity. Maybe that was a mistake. But whatever, Photoshop what ever you want. I'm posting a poll the 19th.

    i think i see the confusion...i too was a bit perplexed...i thought that you were asking people to take the actual october issue that goes out...and screw with ITS cover design...using the original elements that the APA used. but instead...just create something, anything for that cover...right?

    Yeah, I thought you wanted us to mess with the real october cover when it arrives (since you used the term "the cover of" instead of "a cover of").

    OK - Now I see how I took everyone astray. Yep - you got it. Does it sound fun?

    Reading a previous post it appears I was a bit touchy. - I beg your forgivness.

    This sounds like fun... I'm not that great at photoshopping, but I'll give it a go. Could I have a handicap, like in golf or something?

    Yes

    You may just want to do the French/English version for Canada. We could make it its own category. Then we won't cringe when we see all those extra U's and silent E's in your English. Also you may adjust the cover price to $CDN.

    Yay! I get to test my seven months of cereal box French! Does Planning Magazine stay crunchy in milk?

    You might want to look into a copy of Photoshop Elements. It's got everything a planner would ever need Photoshop for....it just doesn't have the high end editing tools.

    You can get a copy for around $100...instead of $500+ for the full version of Photoshop.

    You can download a trial of Photoshop (and other adobe stuff) at:

    I've even asked for that, however, IS said to the powers that be, that for a planners use, photo deluxe is sufficent. bastardos.

    Wink Wink

    Perhaps an olde (note pirate language) copy of Corel photoshop might work?

    Dan, Is using this board for criminal operations against the users agreement?

    If you don't have a painting program, you can also go to www.download.com and find a freeware or shareware program. Some are completely free and others have a nominal fee and/or a trial period. I would reccomend Paint Shop Pro, which will provide enough features to complete your Planning Magazine assignment.

    I think I'm going to sit back and watch rather than attempt to participate in this contest.

    Very good, Mr. Stumpf.

    Very good indeed.
