Generally these challenges will be up on Monday mornings, but since this is the first time many of you have done them I am giving you two extra days.

The first thing we will cover is photo editing. Photo editing is, in the opinion of many advanced makers, the most important part of siggy making. You can create a wonderful layout for your siggy, but, if the photo looks bad or drab it'll affect the whole look of the siggy. So, you can see why this is the first thing we'd like you to learn.
Now, the number one thing I have to tell you about photo editing isn't in the actual editing, but in the resizing the photo for the siggy:
Please, please, please make sure if you make the photo smaller or bigger that you make sure it is even so that it does not end up looking smooshed. Simple way is hold down the shift button as you drag the corners to make bigger or smaller.
Here are a few links to help you learn photo editing basics:

Any other links, be they on JM or an outside source, you might know of feel free to use or share.
I want you to use at least two photos, so you can try to edit them to match each other, in brightness and color and clarity and so on. No black and white photos please.
Please have your entries in by no later than 9 am CST on Monday November 23.

not sure if I did this right. I had to brighten and sharpen the picture here because it was pretty dark.

so far your all doing fine.

benevolent:
instead of grabbing random people's pics (unless it was an FFA) feel free to snatch some from my Facebook. Just don't get the ones that have a black border because they've edited already. Its fine if you did this time though.
