Giveaway: Personalized Photo Collage

UPDATE: THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO ENTERED! I'LL BE CONTACTING THE WINNER WITHIN THE NEXT DAY.





My wife is having fun with this giveaway, so I thought I would join in!

Anyone that knows me knows that I love taking pictures of our daughter and then manipulating them in Photoshop. Here are some examples of some of the work I have done:


























So I am giving one lucky winner (chosen randomly) a custom-made collage using up to five pictures of your choice. It could be pictures of you, your kids, your pets. Anything!

To enter, just leave me a comment telling me what pictures you would like to have made into a collage, along with some sort of contact information (email address or link to your blog).

This contest is open until Friday morning and a winner will be chosen after that. Good Luck!

And don't forget to come back and visit me. I regularly post tutorials on Photoshop and other topics related to photography.

Will you do a tutorial on turning photos into sketches? I followed the directions in a Scott Kelby book and it didn't come out even close to how I'd imagined.

Love your blog. Great giveaway. Thanks.

Great idea. But I would I pick just 5 pictures of my daughter? She is 18 mos. which means my picture count is at about 10,000!

Laura @ Laura Williams' Musings said...

a picture of each of my children (7) so that may be too many as I don't have a photo with them all in it by themselves.


Thanks for the giveaway!

Stop by my place to win a bath set & candles or one of two copies of a book I'm giving away.
