Two people will receive Compositors from moiratools.com.

moirai Compositor is a super simple Photoshop script (for use with CS3 or CS4), that helps you create anything from collages to albums in just minutes. The innovation in the Compositor is it starts with the images and builds a design with them instead of forcing images into a stock design. Check out our videos to see how the Compositor works.

  • A new user interface makes the tool easier to use: Picking the dimensions of the final image is more straight-forward and looks just like the Image Size dialog in Photoshop®. Other options are now defined similarly.
  • Picking the images for your composition is easier than ever: You no longer have to load all of your images into Photoshop® in exactly the right order. The new interface allows you pick other images to include by browsing files on your computer. You can also re-order the images before generating the final composition.
  • There are new options for the final composition so the tool can do more for you: You can specify borders on the individual images in the composition, you can specify background colors other than white, and you can even pick another image to use as the background.
  • Best of all, you get to choose the final layout: Instead of a layout being automatically chosen, you are a given a choice of numerous layout options. This flexibility guarantees that you’ll get the composition you want with no hassles.

NOTE FROM ALI : I had the chance to try out this script software last night and it's really pretty cool. It's easy to tell the program the photos you want to use, choose the layout and hit a single button for it to do the work of re-sizing the images to fit in the grid. I can definitely see using this for scrapbooking both digitally and with paper. Cool product. The only bummer is that it only works with CS3 or CS4.

Montage

Clickin Moms is giving away a 6 month membership.

Here’s the funny thing about photography. It’s one of those activities that seems like something you have to do all on your own: you find the shot, you set it up, you take the picture. And yet, when you think about it, one of the most rewarding aspects about the whole process is sharing with other photographers. That’s what Clickin Moms is all about.

Clickin Moms is a community of women who have the same passion for photography that you have, who have questions about what they’re doing just like you do, and who want to know more about how to do it better – same as you.

What kind of new camera should I shop for? What in the world do I do with it once I get it? How do I capture nice sharp images like I see on the internet? What types of shots work well in scrapbooks? How do I set up my own photography business?

Clickin Moms is a welcoming, generous, supportive group made up of everyone from beginners to pros. And it feels about as close to friends and family as you can get online. What a forum for sharing images and ideas! You can show others your photos and get constructive feedback about them. Learn about a ton of subjects – everything from technical areas like lighting to practical stuff like the business of photography. Even host your own lesson on a subject others want to know more about. And if you have your own blog, you can join the affiliate program and earn commissions by referring your readers to Clickin’ Moms.

On top of all the support that is available to every member every day, Clickin’ Moms has recently started to offer photography workshops. These incredibly popular classes come in several varieties, geared towards various levels of photographers and topics.

No matter where you are in your photography journey, this is a group that’s worth getting to know.
