Oct 9th Digital Night – Wild Life

The weather is changing, we’ve entered into fall. But, that brings so many opportunities for different wildlife, and there is always the wildlife you captured in the Winter, Spring or Summer.

You’ve probably guessed this month’s theme is “Wildlife” and that entails, Animals, Sea Life and anything that lives wild in nature. This also ties into the upcoming Nature Digital Competition, so that category will be included as well.

This month’s themes fall into three main categories: Animals, Sea Life and Nature. Let’s celebrate the outdoors and show what we’ve captured

Last month’s brief tutorial on Photoshop introduced basic editing and image adjustment tools such as: Crop/Straighten; Levels; and Brightness/Contrast. So the challenge category will be Before and After images showing these edits and adjustments. Note for this category only please only show images adjusted in Photoshop,

If time permits October’s Photoshop tutorial will include image adjustments of Channel Mixer, Black and White and a brief tutorial on image sizing for creating banners.

Below are the criteria for this month. Send in those wonderful “wildlife” captures!

Categories are: Animals, Sea Life, Nature and Before/After

Note: Each member can submit up to 3 images for each of the four categories.

Members can also send short slideshows or videos.  We will show all the categories, and end with videos, as time permits.

Remember, for the best display quality, images should be resized to a maximum width of 1920 pixels and a maximum height of 1080 pixels, This may not be possible with cell/tablet images so please send us the largest image possible, up to the limits indicated above.
