Yes but it doesn't say text is allowed on this challenge

Under the current rules you can print out some text, take a picture of it (high-contrast recommended!), delete the background, and paste the remaining text onto your image.

It is also still *possible* (but not certain) that the special rule allowing text to be entered directly will be added later ... keep your fingers crossed and save your text file ... :-)


It would be a lot easier if they would just add a special ruleset


But no where near as much fun.


Stupid....! What Art Director creating an album cover would photograph the text?

Improving in the number of entries and of votes... I definitely like that (even if I'm not sure I'll have an entry for this one)

It would have been nice if text could have been added (without photographing it). Still, it's a nice editing practice :)

I think I uploaded my entry 8 times. First time a while ago, but I changed it since. Then I uploaded the new version, but didn't like a part of it. Then I fixed that part, but each time I uploaded I forgot to fix a spec here or something there. I think it's final now. I'm looking forward to this one.

Just had my first look through. Some are good.
But there seems to be a lot of text added... Could be a fair number of DQs...

I don't think there is any text added on the entries which couldn't be done by the method Paul suggested - print out the text, photograph then blend in photoshop or wherever.

That's how I added mine (except I didn't bother to print it out).

Took me hours to do my text under the rule set!.....for something that should have taken 5 minutes!!!
01/22/2014 05:13:35 AM · #41

I wanted text on mine should have photographed it. So simple.

It took me a while to figure out exactly how to do the text, but when I did, it was remarkably easy.
01/22/2014 05:55:55 AM · #43
It took 5 minutes to get my text...
01/22/2014 06:13:05 AM · #44
We can, of course, click the button 'Click here if you suspect a rules violation' of all submitted images with text. Lots of work for the SC, but the good thing is that the top 5 winners probably have their submissions evaluated already when the voting period ends.
01/22/2014 06:39:56 AM · #45
well, i ain't got text, nor going to make the top 5 lol.

Exactly. In honesty, I think it's a bit ridiculous to not have added an extra rule stating one may add text, but only as an album title or something. My text didn't take long and most of it was best photographed, but for a lot of the entries it must have been tedious. And besides, isn't adding text via photograph the same thing as simply writing it in expert editing rules?

This was all photographed text... really not that hard to do.

Just dropped 0.5 in 2 votes after 25 votes. My calc say they must both have been 1's.... Dropped from 7.1 to 6.6...! I guess somebody's holding a grudge!

I just woke up and looked at the vote tracker -- two 1s and a 2 so far.

In my view the best entries have no text anyway.
