Hey there!

As I announced last year ( XD, sounds like an eternity ago) we will do a new Photoshop-Ping-Pong soon.

I am in the "Hot Phase" - Iīve already got everything finished- everything but the pairings.

So I ask all of those who have already signed up till now to leave me a comment for their "classification" and Program they use.

I will start with myself as an example

GentianaArts : GIMP - Advanced
digitalessandra : Photoshop - Advanced
TheFantaSim : PhotoShop (PaintShop Pro) - Intermediate
MarloesW : GIMP -Beginner
RebeccaLongArt PhotoShop - Intermediate
kongvmax : Photoshop Elements - Intermediate

Please classify yourself either in advanced or beginners depending on the contest you won (Beginner or Advanced group).
This is really important, for we are doing this to have fun and learn from each other.

Iīve listed all participants above, just leave a comment and Iīll update this journal.
If there are still some of you out there who havenīt signed up, but want to, leave a comment below. Hereīs the link to the explanations of Photoshop Ping Pong manip-contest-award.deviantart…

P.S.: Those who didnīt gave me their infos- please do this soon. We will start either next week or the week after!

Love you all!!!

As you probably know, our dear Donna has no time to run this group at the moment, so I will do this as the Co-Founder until she is here again!

She gave me permission to start a new round of Photoshop-Ping-Pong, which I really am happy about.

So, all our members: Who would like to join???

For those who havenīt participated in one yet, a brief information about this:

Photoshop-Ping-Pong is a very funny and interesting "game" of this group.
There will be groups of two people who will work on one Manipulation together.
One will start, send it to the other one, then the other will work on it and so on.
There will be 4 work sessions, every member of a pair will have 2.
There will be a theme that I will set up.

Whoīs interested????

People who will participate:
