    Rules updated today for "Photoshop" Adjustments to Photos

    Rules updated today...we have added guidelines for acceptable but very limited retouching of photos. It is acceptable to retouch for red eye spots, color balance to restore natural colors altered by flash photography and to sharpen photos especially after any resizing that you may do.

    All other enhancements such as blurred edges, frames, halos, sparkles, glints and many more are strongly discouraged as this is a contest about your pet's natural expression, and not your skills with photo software. We know those effects are nice and some of you have great skills doing that, but we are looking for clear, natural photos that best say my pet's face and expression are the best, clearly!

    Thanks.

    Read the rules carefully please.

            Because we have had and still have some members that are groomers and photographers sometimes even in the same business, we will allow professioal portraits. However, the person submitting the photos must be the owner of the pet or pets. Also, some photographers enhance photos with beyond the basics "photoshopping" such as halo effects, ornate frames etc which are not allowed. Photo software editing should essentially be limited to sharpening and color correcting for flash and removing red eye etc.

                Hi,
                I just have a question or concern....I posted pictures on the 12th and today is the 18th and I still do not see my pictures, I'm concerned I'm going to miss out.....I remember reading it takes several days but I didn't think it would take 6.
                Thanks,
                Cathy Burnett

                Stephen: Don't worry, it can take a week easily, but I do expect we will be current by Monday as we are catching up on them during the weekend.

                  Let me share that the reason we are going slower than expected is that more than 50% of all entries are incomplete, or mistakes. Wrong photo with pet associated, no contact info, no mention of what division is being entered. So we have to contact the person along the way.

                  It's pretty simple, name, contact info, DIVISION, pet's name.

                  Some have sent us just a photo, nothing else but from the email address we finally get the info.

                  Hang on. Please don't send again just because I posted this. If you entered BEFORE today Saturday, 12/18 and you don't see your entry on Monday, 12/20 check your email or check in with us. Photos that arrive today Saturday or Sunday tomorrow are scheduled for Tuesday.

                    I am told that all entries are posted submitted up to, not including, 12/16/2010.

                    If you submitted 12/15 or earlier, check your email. Perhaps we still need info from you. Thanks.

                    We have quite a few entries 12/16 forward yet to do.

                            Great job Stephen! I enjoy seeing the groomers pets so much, shows something of who we are.

                            Stephen: Maybe next time we should have YOUR FACE next to your PETS FACE as a couple, you can dress as famous couples, or look alikes or ??? LOL Could be a riot and touching.

                              You still have one week to enter and win a $1200 home study grooming course or a $340 Metro HV dryer. Share your pet's face! Anyone may enter, career seekers or groomers. You don't even HAVE to be a member of this board.
