CS5 Contest- Be a part of our CS5 Training!

To all of our Photoshop users out there…

We’re having a contest in which YOU could be a part of our CS5 Training!

Here are the rules:

1-    Create a piece of digital art using Photoshop and the 3 images that are provided below. You may incorporate other images as well, but the 3 provided images must be used in your composition to be eligible to win.

2-    You must email your finished product to contest@learnkey.com by no later than July 5th at 12:00 pm

The winner of the contest will be selected by LearnKey and the winning digital art, along with the winner’s name, will be announced and integrated in our Photoshop CS5 training. The winner (and also the 2nd and 3rd place winners) will also receive a LearnKey t-shirt! The contest is open to anyone, but due to outrageous overseas shipping costs, t-shirts will only be awarded to residents of North America.

If you have any other questions about the contest, please email us at contest@learnkey.com or leave your question in the comments and we’ll answer promptly.

You may download the full-sized images by clicking here- CS5 Contest Pics

It’s that time again!

All you have to do is answer the trivia question correctly to be eligible to win. Once you’ve submitted the correct answer in your comment, we’ll have a drawing and randomly pick a winner.

Make sense?

Alright then… Here we go!

Thursday’s Tricky Trivia Winner:

Shucks. Unfortunately, nobody got the answer right for Tom’s question, which means it must have been pretty tricky! Good job Tom! You’ve stumped us!

So for this particular question, instead of posting the answer, we’re going to save it for later and possibly for a bigger, better prize.

Thanks for all those who participated.

Make sure you check back with us next Thursday for a new question- a not so tricky question!
