About Texture Tuesday

I love this beautiful blogging community. I love how freely people share and encourage.  Texture Tuesday is a photography blog party.  Each Tuesday I will create a post with the little inlinkz gadget so you can link to your latest favorite photo. The post will go up, in the early hours of Tuesday morning.  The post will close the following Sunday at 12:00 am cst.

Why a Linky Party?

Often people email me with their favourite textured photos they have created using my textures.  Or they leave a comment with a link. The Linky Party will allow you to share your photos with me and all the beautiful readers that visit my site. I think it'll be a fabulous way to inspire one another.  

How can I play?

It's easy. Simply post your favorite textured photo on your blog or flickr stream. Or anywhere you share your images.  Then hop over the linky party post of the week, here at the Café and share your name, email and permalink to the post. Feel free to share the texture you used on your image, in your posting. 

Are there any rules?

Just 2.

Please share images that you processed using at least one of my textures. (except on not necessarily texture tuesday.)

Please link to the permalink, not the main page of your blog or flickr stream.  To find the permalink simply click on the title of the post in which you shared your photo.  Next, head on up to the top url bar of your browser (you know the place where the address shows). Highlight the url text, then copy it (type command c or control c on a pc to copy).  Then pop over to the link box and paste (command v or control v on a pc) the address into the blank url space.

Will there be a theme each week?  

Not every week... but yes there will be themes. I will note the upcoming challenge info the Tuesday before.

Share the Texture Tuesday Button

To share the button, simply copy and paste the code into an html widget on your site, or share it in your texture Tuesday posting.
