All rise, the Round 32 of the Caption Contest is now in session!

The premise is simple; whoever places the best caption on the provided LBP image wins! The caption could be a thought going through the characters' heads, or something the characters are saying, or even a short story leading up to the picture! It can practically be anything you want, as long as it's clean and abides by the forum rules.

NOTE: Humor is the only way to win!

Every two weeks a new picture will be posted, and the winners from the previous round shall be announced.

Congratulations Taffey, OJ, Chuck and Icey. All very good.

Great picture again this time too guys and some "cracking" entries already. ( sorry couldn't help myself ).

We could be in for an eggsellent eggstravaganza this round that could leave us all shell shocked. ( sorry I did it again didn't I ).

Thinking up something for this one could really scramble my brain ( oops ).

I'll stop now !!

Can I enter a video if it's just text coming on screen then disappearing again? (I haven't animated the picture) I couldn't really do mine as just a picture with speach bubbles on it.

Ummm... Well, I guess it wouldn't hurt, but there is no extra credit for it and actually not sure how I would archive it after the round is over . I would rather see a pic with captions, but we have allowed animated gif's to do something similar to what you are wanting. Just a thought, can you just have the pic replicated as a few panels?

I didn't expect there to be any extra credit, I just have to have a movie to get the idea across, thanks.

jwwphotos
03-30-2010, 10:59 PM
Photoshop is great though I mostly use Fireworks, and others have used Gimp. The easiest is simply posting it on Photobucket and add your text balloons there, but it is a bit limited depending on what you are wishing to do.

This may sound weird at first but Microsoft Publisher is pretty good. Almost everyone has it on their computer and if you go to autoshapes there's some speech bubbles. Once you add them in click and drag over the whole picture, right click it and save as picture.

Simples *Squeaky noise that meerkat on the 'Compare the market' and 'Compare the meerkat' makes after saying simples*.

Nope... We changed it to a 2 week contest starting with round 30. Reason being, so more folks had time to enter as well as give us enough time to think up a new concept, create the set and take the pic. Got to be quite a bit of work doing that every week.

This round's deadline is this Saturday and listed above on the entry pic you used.

Hi. I use photobucket too and it took me a while to realise you can alter the size before you upload your photos to your albums.

When on the upload screen go to 'more options' and you can change the size at which the upload is saved. I select 640 X 480 for the caption contest pics and 320 X 240 for level thread pics and they seem to be just about perfect.

Try that next time and see what you think.
