    Hi Rick, I've been waiting for someone to reply , I must be having an old persons moment , I dont understand this quote Re this weeks comp : "tips and advice for photographing animals that fit the PHOTO MANIPULATION"
    category

    Are we talking Digital manipulation on animals ? Or is it just Digital/Photo manipulation of anything , Combining images and texture layers and all that type of thing
    Canon : 30D, and sometimes the 5D mkIII , Sigma 10-20, 50mm 1.8, Canon 24-105 f4 L , On loan Sigma 120-400 DG and Canon 17 - 40 f4 L , Cokin Filters

    Ok glad there is clarification on this weeks comp. I had been wracking my brains thinking of subjects that involved manipulation but had wondered in the deep recesses of my mind if it actually meant photo manipulation instead. So now my next query is what is allowed? I am learning Lightroom 4 at the moment so this might be a good way to experiment. So what are the boundaries ie how far can we take it?

    Hi Helen, Photo manipulation means anything is allowed, EG, Combining images , Adding elements and textures etc, The only thing that I would keep in mind , Is all images used must be your own , I'm not a mod but that is part of AP site rules/Copyright

    William is correct Helen, any amount of processing / manipulation is allowed and the comp is designed to have people show the best that they can do with software on their own images.

    Not wrong!

    Heres a question.....are we allowed to use textures that are not our own, in the image for the comp? I use free textures which to me are an enhancement to my images, and are not the main part of the image. Are these allowed?

    Be careful, boasting might end up with you being upgraded to Advanced

    If it is a free 'open source' texture, you can use it, as long as it is not the main feature of the photo. So if I looked at it and went 'wow, the texture makes this' then NO!

    Wouldn't want that to happen!

    Yep, textures are free from an 'open source'.....but I think I might have fun making my own!

    71 layers I dont think we could compress that enough could we? Great clip bill.
