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.

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.

    Peaceliving said…

    Ooh! All three look great (and I do have Photoshop CS3 so I could use the first one!) My favorite creative tool right now…I’m experimenting with my photoshop actions and trying to figure out what they all do. I’m also using Becky Higgin’s Project Life album which is a good challenge and at the same time a release from traditional scrapbooking. I’m liking it, as I had been “scrap challenged” for the past year.

  • 72.
    Kim said…

    I would have to say my current favorite scrapbooking tool is my photoshop program. Over the last 6 months I’ve been learning how to use this program. Little by little I’m expanding my skills and I’m thrilled with my results. Ali, I hope you and your little ones are on the road to recovery. Have a great weekend, Kim :)

    Jules Stuart said…

    My favorite tool has got to be my cricut cutter. It makes things so much easier when it comes to cutting out letters and shapes. Plus, I can interact with it with the computer. This is a wonderful give-a-way Ali! Thanks to you and all of your sponsors. Have a terrific weekend!

    Love the giveaways! Thank you to your sponsors! My favorite tool is the Log Your Memory 2010 daily memory keeper/jogger. I found it on your blog in November, bought it, and downloaded the Dec 09 and 2010 calendars. It’s full of great ideas to help me capture what’s going on in my world right now as well as inspiration to jot notes about stories I want to tell. I take it with me everywhere! Thanks Ali!!

    My favorite product is this cool camera bag by Acme. It looks like a little bowling bag. Why is it my favorite? Because I saw it in CK and showed the pic to my dad. His response was “That is hideous! You already have a camera bag!!” (men..). Anyway, about 2 weeks later, he came home from Best Buy with the same bag….I think of him every time I whip out my camera. Thanks, Dad!

    The internet! I’m pretty new at this so bouncing around reading the blogs and looking at galleries is very very inspiring. I learned so much doing the December Daily that I am doing Project Life and also am gearing up to do Week in the Life! So excited!

    I have recently fallen BACK in love with my circle cutter. I can’t get over how easy and simple it is to use and how much it can improve a simple layout!

    Joy said…

    At the moment my favourite tool is my Photoshop CS3 application which I am spending hours trying to master, I am not a quick learner and am very envious of those that seem to pick it up so quickly, luckily I have discovered all the talented Hybrid Scapbooker’s out there on the world wide web who have made learning photoshop that much easier with their helpful tips and tutorials. I love the idea of the Compositors from Moiratools, anything that makes photoshop easier to use is a winner in my eyes.

  • 95.
    Karidan said…

    My favorite tool tight now is probably PSE which I never really took the time to explore until I was taking your yesterday/Today class, and now with Cathy’s DYL class. It isn’t as difficult as I was letting it be in my mind!
