(This is one we've done several times, but as always some of you are new...)
Okay the first thing we will be going over is photo enhancements and tricks to make photos better. The photos in your siggy can greatly improve the quality and presentation of the siggy itself. What you ladies will do is make a siggy with a pic that you enhanced as the main part of the siggy. Your original photo must be posted here first for approval, preferably before Thursday. I say this so that you have plenty of time to get CC (constructive criticism) on the siggy and get help on enhancing the photo. What you need to work on, before putting the siggy together, is trying to make the photo better. Also, the sooner you get your photo in, the sooner you can find out if you can properly enhance it, or if you should pick a new photo. Here is a link, for each program on a few basic tricks to photo enhancing:
Photo Enhancing in Photo Shop (Photo Enhancing in PS)
Photo Enhancing in Photo Shop Elements (Photo Enhancing in PSE)
Photo Enhancing in GIMP (Photo enhancing in Gimp)
Photo Enhancing in Paint Shop Pro (Photo enhancing - PSP)
Do not just use these links and think you are done! What you need to do after you have done the things in those tutorials is post both the original and your first edit in the Makers Lounge with the topic title of (your name) SSSC CC. Make sure you list what program you use and the theme of the challenge which is Photo Enhancement. You should get plenty of CC from other makers, and I encourage you to also help each other. Once you're happy with the photos then begin the siggy which you can also get CC on. Please have your entries in by Monday morning by 8 am central time (US), I will post the poll sometime around then and get the new challenge up that afternoon.
Good luck ladies!

Trish, just so you know, those links just take you to the Index page of the site, not to individual topics. . .

1 needs to be the main focus of the siggy but you can use more.

the first would be easier, but you'll probably learn more getting CC on editing the second.
