Dunnock_D) any way you wish. Some examples are - re-design this castle gate, decorate it, change the environment behind the castle gate, use this castle gate in movies, paintings, etc. These are just some ideas.
Photoshop this image of gate door (click to download) any way you wish. Some examples are: remove the bricks from this doorway and show what may be behind it, reshape this door, use this door image image in advertisements, movies, paintings, etc. These are just some ideas.
This is an Apprentice Contest. You are eligible to enter this contest if you have less than 5 golden trophies at Freaking News.
You have 7 days to submit your entry. Submitting it early will give you plenty of time to read the critique comments and edit your image accordingly.
Many thanks to Michal Zacharzewski and Stock Exchange for providing the source photo.
Bill Gates has officially left Microsoft this Friday.
While Bill planned his departure for years, it happens at a difficult time for Microsoft - the company struggles to compete with Google for search engine domination. Microsoft attempts to make its own "live search" popular were not successful, and the company is back to negotiations with Yahoo about the possible take-over of Yahoo search engine.
Before "Microsoft" was registered as a trade name in 1976, the partnership was called "Micro-soft" for a year before the hyphen was dropped. In the first years of Microsoft, Bill Gates actively wrote code, and personally reviewed every line of code that was written by other employees. Gates was always fascinated with programming and was often described as a geek or even nerd by people who studied with him.
He went from zero to hero with Microsoft, he brought us Windows, but now the captain is leaving the boat. Good bye, Bill!
To say good-bye to Bill Gates, photoshop him any way you wish. Some examples are: showing what alternative professions he could have chosen, Gates in movies and paintings, photoshopping Bill Gates as a nerd (in the current or early years),
showing how he will look in his senior years, etc.
