Any and all treatments not normally allowed software-wise are allowed/encouraged for this contest: artsy filters, exposure stacking/HDR, tilt-shift, stitching, etc. NOTE: No pasting or moving subjects not in the original photo(s) like a PS contest.
Thanks to soosh for this theme suggestion! And he almost certainly wins the wordiest theme suggestion evar award. Alas, the site only allows a certain number of chars in that field, so I had to really edit it down. But here’s his original wording so it can be appreciated in its fullest awesome glory:
Software Hootennany: HDR, Holga, Polaroid, LucisArt, Photoshop Filters, Tilt-shift, selective channel-shifting, make your photo look like stained glass, Gypsy shapeshifting. Portuguese Fisherman’s dithered-raster-modulation, Grandmother Bronstein’s Olde-Tyme Iodine Tinting. Everything that’s normally not allowed software-wise is allowed in this contest. You can’t paste in a UFO or Elvis or any visual element that wasn’t in the original photo, and you can’t move elements of the photo around like a Photoshop contest, but any and all treatments you want to slap on your photo are encouraged.August 26, 2009 at 8:21 pm #24450linguineParticipant
I remember it went back and forth on whether or not we could use past entries in this, did we ever make a final decision on that?August 26, 2009 at 8:36 pm #24451
I think we need to leave past entries out of it. It’s already allowing so much other stuff that I don’t see why we’d need to use past entries, too. Certainly everyone can find new stuff to play with?August 26, 2009 at 9:50 pm #24452linguineParticipant
Thats fine with me, Im not too worried about finding pictures to play with.August 26, 2009 at 10:19 pm #24453
I’m asking again, as with in Color Popping. I take the pictures, but can my husband do the shooping, or is it okay if he does it under my direction? I’m not really all that good with the filters or anything, but he has da skeelz for said work. Maybe I’ll just borrow his ‘puter for it instead.August 26, 2009 at 11:23 pm #24454
I think as long as you took the picture, it should be fine, but especially for this contest, it should probably be under your direction. If you tell him what you want done to a picture you took, I’d be ok with that.August 27, 2009 at 12:58 am #24455nobigdealParticipant
Yay!! Happy Happy Joy Joy!!!!
I can use my Topaz software !!!!August 27, 2009 at 1:14 am #24456swampaParticipant
can my husband do the shooping.
Get him to teach you how to do it. That way you too can become a shooping master and be charging your lazors in no time! 😛August 27, 2009 at 1:50 am #24457
I’ll get him to install PS (or equivalent) on my ‘puter soon then. I might just have too much fun with it then.August 29, 2009 at 5:15 pm #24458
As posted in the Color Pop thread, a friend has given me his copy of Photoshop Elements that he doesn’t use so I will be using that and applying such artsy stuff myself and my husband won’t have to do it for me.August 29, 2009 at 5:35 pm #24459olavfParticipant
W00t! Good luck clouddancer!September 5, 2009 at 9:34 pm #24460justkatParticipant
I don’t have anything specific in mind, just picking nits… I’m assuming that you can’t *remove* significant elements either? Making that work — even if I wanted to — would be far beyond my PS skillz. 😛
edited to add:
although I suppose it would be *one* way to get my ex-husband off the couch on his days off… *gigglesnort*September 20, 2009 at 11:55 pm #24461justkatParticipant
I sense a lot of fail on my part in this one. 😛September 21, 2009 at 12:16 am #24462nobigdealParticipant

Free trial downloads, full function. You can do some pretty neat tricks with just the default settings.
Give it a whirl.September 21, 2009 at 5:08 am #24463
Ok, as I’m playing with this, I have to ask. Is it only filter stuff we can do, or are brush strokes allowed? Specifically, the impressionist brush is fun and a few other tools, but I’m still not sure how it will end up yet, so I’m asking.
Also, should we post a link to the original so people can see what we did/where we started from?
