Will this contest be Photoshop heavy? If not I can join. It's just some of my programs are acting up lately.

Spicycookies_SC
16th Jun 2008, 8:49 PM
Yes and no. Photoshop is not required, but I'm not saying you can't photoshop. Creativity will be the main critique.

Edit:

Avatars will be arriving after the Application Round.

They often fight over who gets the perfect spot next to me, as we watch clouds.

| BODY SHOT |

http://i288.photobucket.com/albums/ll176/HEART_shapedballoon/BS-Clicky.jpg (http://pics.livejournal.com/hell_sings/pic/000042q8)

Having a private beach, means no unwanted people around spoiling my fun while I'm with my dogs.

| ACTIVITY SHOT

Yes, you did everything right. Perfect, even! You might want to cut out the 'action task' though in the program paint, if you can. If not, then it's equally fine.

You can always get GIMP.
It's a free knock-off version of Photoshop that is way better than Paint.

Your sim is searching in their old attic, and finds an old box labelled as 'Baby Photos". You open it up and find...

Of course, baby photos of your pet.

Requirements:
1 or 2 photos of puppy/kitten version of your pet
1 photo of puppy/kitten doing something naughty (example; tearing up sofa)
1 photo of the day and area you adopted the puppy/kitten (example; a breeder, the shelter)
