The Digital Interface Group - Guidelines

The Digital Interface Group is intended first and foremost as a learning centre. The idea is that those who have a will to do so will post images here with a reasonable description to help others in their development. In other words, don’t post an image unless you want to give away how you created it.

These are the guidelines the Digital Interface Group.

1. Only post images here that have been *significantly modified (or created!) in a software product such as Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop, ArcSoft etc…… * Just changing the contrast, cropping and so on, without changing the nature or subject of the image is not enough. You must have created something new. An example of this would be composites of different images or collages, or complex filters.

2. It is expected that you include with your image a brief description of the software and the technique used to create the image. That helps others understand the effort you have put in and also will breed even more creativity. This is the number one reason why things get rejected Tell everyone what you did and how you did it. ‘I used lots of layers’ or ‘this was constructed from a bunch of pictures’ or ‘I used photoshop filters to create this effect’ is not telling anyone about how you did it or what you used.

3. The cat who chases a thousand mice catches none. In other words, post one or two images a day at maximum or the flood of pictures will be unmanageable.

4. If it is deemed offensive, then it may be removed without notice. I will always attempt to negotiate but must respect Red Bubble rules and people’s sensibilities.

5. Tutorials, explanations, thoughts and ideas are very, very welcome. Please feel free to contribute. Just create some ‘writing’ and add it to this group.

6. Have fun. If you enjoy your work and you have passion for it, then others will too.
