And of course, you MUST use Photoshop (any version) to create your masterpiece. The purpose of this Photoshop Challenge is to get you involved with our community, enjoy fiddling with the images, stir up your creativity, and to share with us all. We hope you have fun making this your very own image. This is just for fun and of course, not mandatory. We will be looking at them at our next meeting, March 3, 2014.

Your goal is to make lemonade from lemons...or simply create a new image where the lemon remains the focal point of your composition. You may change the background, you may add textures, you can even change the color or species of the lemon (does it look like a founding father's profile to you, too?). And of course, you MUST use Photoshop (any version) to create your masterpiece. The purpose of this Photoshop Challenge is to get you involved with our community, enjoy fiddling with the images, stir up your creativity, and to share with us all.

Your goal is to fill the Cornucopia or create a new image where the cornucopia remains the focal point of your composition. You may change the background, you may add textures, you can even change the color of the Cornucopia BUT, you can not change the shape of the cornucopia (no changing the integrity of the focal object). And of course, you MUST use Photoshop (any version) to create your masterpiece. The purpose of this Photoshop Challenge is to get you involved with our community, enjoy fiddling with the images, stir up your creativity, and to share with us all.
