This is a very helpful tutorial. A real kickstarter guide. Thinking about the past of being an LMAC freshman, this post would have helped me a lot.
And it's very well structured!
Thank you for your engagement. I am very happy to welcome new LMACians who will hopefully subscribe en masse to my favorite community due to this useful manual.

Thank you very much, it is giving back a little bit of what LMAC has to offer.

Ich bin schon mal dabei 😄

Hello @eve66, Sharing this wonderful tutorial on Twitter. We may catch some bees with this bit of honey :)

Thank you @agmoore!

You are welcome. LMAC, to the moon :)

Thank you yes, the idea is to help those who are starting to elaborate their collage.

Hello, excellent friend, your well-completed tutorial is a good material for new users who want to make collage taking into account all the things that you show in your tutorial. Thank you for sharing with the LMAC and Hive community.

Thanks, I hope other users will join in and make tutorials.

At least in my case I don't know how to make Gif in Photoshop/Gimp

I make the gifs in gimp in a simple process.

Excelente información, todo lo que se necesita saber para participar en el Concurso!

Very nice dear and very needed. I saw two things, label is in your translation but we talk about tags on hive
And I see in your beneficiaries that you have 5% to peakd ? Is that in all your blogs ?

Thank you, I'm glad you like it,

If the label is to place in the Post, now in the Spanish tarduccion I place the label in English so that the person does not forget that the language of the contest is in English.

If in almost all my posts, Peakd has a 5% sometimes I leave it at 1% when I place the 20% of Lmac.

sometimes I forget and it stays at 5%.

¡Qué maravillosa iniciativa, @eve66! De verdad, es un hermoso gesto para la comunidad y para quienes quieren empezar a participar.
Me gustó mucho tu post. Recuerdo que, cuando comencé a participar, siempre creía que había dejado de seguir alguna regla o había interpretado algo mal. Recuerdo también que las clses de @quantum me ayudarosn muchísimo. Si además hubiera habido un tutorial como este, hubiera sido de mucha ayuda.
Un abrazo enorme para ti.

The same thing happened to me,

I read all the posts to see what programs they used and where they got the images, started with power point and now I'm learning Photoshop.
For me LMAC is a school of learning and a great community.

@quantum classes are wonderful.

My goal with this post is that more people join the community and that their start is easy because they have at hand the first tools to shape their collage.

Humans are very competitive, but the goal of this community is not to win the contest, the goal is for you to enjoy and learn the art of digital collage.

I have a similar experience.
You make a nice reflection , which I fully agree with.

Hi, @eve66, good explanation here, but I suggest removing from the list because the images could be used only for non-commercial purposes. (CC BY-NC 4.0). You got paid here in the contest for your work and you broke the license.

Hi, thanks for the suggestion I will check it out.

In the publication I mentioned the site, I did not use material from your website.

Thank you, happy day

No problem, it's not my site, I never heard/used it but when I saw the link I tried to check png's to see the material but noticed that it has only a non-profit license and if someone uses it break @shaka rules :)

thanks for sharing this information
