The Submission Policy

What The Group Accepts For Its Galleries

GREETINGS !

Hi Dear Members,  Welcome to our group's newsletter.  Some of our long-standing members may remember Our newsletters from way back.  We have decided to bring them back.  

We hope you find them enjoyable and informative.  We will report all activities within our group and affiliate groups.  As well as News relative to the photo manipulation and DA world.

If you come across anything you think will be of interest to fellow members please drop me a note titled "Stuff"  to The group or my personal inbox supersnappz16.  And we may well add it to the next edition.


HOT GROUP NEWS



TheFantaSim has asked me to post some changes to our SUBMISSION RULES  as follows.

Our Submission Policy has been updated to include old rules that had been forgotten about last year when the group had it's Grand Re-Opening.

:bulletblue: You are allowed to select your Skill Level, but once you have decided, there is no changing from one challenge to another. You will be disqualified if you do.

:bulletblue:If you're a Level 2 or Level 3 and feel you are ready for the next level, talk to TheFantaSim first. She wants everyone to be successful in the group, and that includes moving up when it's really time. 

:bulletblue: If you want to participate in a challenge or contest, but not compete for whatever reason, select the Non-Competitive category instead.

:bulletblue:Lastly, the "WHAT TO DO WHEN YOUR DEVIATION IS COMPLETED" section of the Challenge/Contest journals have been updated. Please read carefully the next time you participate.

Very welcome Lora,  Hopefully in a few months I will be ready to take part in more contests.  I was trying to work on a image for the Hans Christian Anderson contest, but I still need to do more tutorials first.  Not sure how I managed to do what I did with your springtime image, must have been beginners luck lol. 

Cutting out people is one of my biggest issues,  but practice makes perfect.

I cut out images by my finger, I thinks it's much more easer than to do it with a mouse on a computer:)

I will have to try it on my android tablet. I will also have to dig out my Wacom tablet, that I bought a few years back when I was going to try manipulation but never did lol.
