Win a $900 Into the Darkroom Hyperlyte Blog

Do you need a blog?  Does your current blog have small photos or a poor layout?  Do you need a blog designed especially for photographers?

This is your opportunity to win the $900 Into the Darkroom Hyperlyte Blog.  This blog is well organized and perfect for showing off the “MCP Magic Blog It Boards” and large photos.


To enter this contest, you need to do all of the following:

1 – Use a “Magic Blog It Board” with your photographs. You can use any of them from Set 1 or 2.  If you do not own these, you can grab the “Try Me” one from my website and use that.  These actions are compatible with Photoshop CS2 and higher.  If you have v7 or CS, you can download the free one, run until it stops.  Then manually insert photos using the clipping masks.  This takes away the “magic” but allows you to participate in the contest.

2 – Post the completed “Magic Blog It Board” on your current Blog, Website, Flickr, Facebook, or on a photography forum (if the forum rules allow).  This must be posted on or after the introduction of today’s announcement of the contest.

3 – Tag the posted “Magic Blog It Board” with “MCP Actions” and “”

4 – Link your “Magic Blog It Board” to You can write whatever you want to beyond that.

5 – Post in the comment section for this contest (do not email me directly), with a link to where you did all of the above steps.


The winner will be selected on the evening of December 15th via random drawing.  The person selected must have completed steps 1-5 or I will select a different winner.

Good luck everyone – this is an amazing prize.

    Love your actions, Jodi! I use the retouch ones every day. I couldn’t do what I do without them. You can find my post on FB as I don’t have my blog happening yet. The link is:

    I wasn’t sure how to tag the images in FB to your keywords. If I befriend you, will it work then? Also, I made a large one for my wall, but had to put the link directly above it, as it wouldn’t let me link in the photo paragraph. If anyone knows how to do this, I’d be happy to change it. But your name and site are listed many times.

    I updated my blog post with a link to I wasn’t sure if we’re supposed to but don’t want to be eliminated from the contest. LOL.
