Win the BAG OF TRICKS Photoshop Actions: Halloween Picture Share

halloween contest

Win the BAG OF “TRICKS” Photoshop action set for Elements (PSE) or Photoshop (CS2-CS5)


  • Contest runs: Now through Monday, Nov. 1st, 2010 at 4pm eastern time.
  • Submit a HALLOWEEN themed photo to this blog post (resized to 600px wide) OR on my Facebook Page.
    • The photo can be funny, cute, creepy, spooky, sweet, yummy, etc, but must tie into Halloween in some way.
    • At least one MCP action must be used – if you do not own any yet, you can download a FREE Photoshop action.
    • My 8 year old twin girls, Ellie and Jenna, will be the judges.  They will pick the winning photo. HINTS: Jenna loves sugar and candy.  Ellie loves reading. Both LOVE “festive.” They are into “unique” and they would probably think it was really “cool” if you incorporated “MCP” into your picture. This last “hint” is not a requirement, as it has been in past photo contests, since it is so last minute.  But…. keep it in mind in case you can MCP or even “Bag of Tricks” into your themed image…
  • Have fun! I look forward to seeing your entries.
  • Not a requirement: I would appreciate it if you can share the contest on Facebook, Twitter, your blog, a forum, etc. Sample tweet or post: “MCP Actions ( is having a Halloween Photo Contest for the Bag of Tricks Photoshop action set. If you aren’t too scared, go enter now!”
  • Winner to be announced by Tuesday evening. So check back then. If you already own Bag of Tricks, you can choose any one Blog It Board or Print It Board set – perfect for displaying all of those Halloween images on your blog or in print.

    Hi there-
    So, you might be wondering why in the heck I would be all painted up like this right now? Well, I thought it would be fun to pick up the kids from school all vamped out! Then I saw the chance to win an amazing set of actions from MCP…which I would LOVE to use! So, I thought I would take a picture of myself and submit it with the rest. The action I used today from MCP was the Eye Doctor…which I have to say is one of my mosted used actions! Thanks for the chance at a super awesome prizes and hope everybody has an awesome Halloween!!!!
