Competition: You Gotta Bling! It to Win It!
Last week we blogged about Bling! It, the revolutionary photo editing software that will have you transforming ordinary product shots into extraordinary ones â€“ and fast!
Today, Bling! It and TameBay have joined forces to offer you the chance to win 1 of 20 copies of Bling! It!
Total competition prize value is $999!!
All you need to enter the competition is download the 15 day trial version of Bling! It, install it on your machine and start Bling!ing your product shots. Entries will be published in the TameBay Forum on the TameBay Flickr stream and on the Bling! It blog and can be linked to your eBay shop or website if you wish. It’s a great opportunity not only to win some fantastic software but also to get traffic to your products.
To take an ordinary product shot, one you would use on your own eBay shop, and use Bling! It to delete the background and drop in a new one. You can be as creative as you want to be, here’s an example for you:
I selected as much of the background as I could with the Red Brush (Delete Local Brush), I then used the Blue Brush (Blend Exact Brush) and painted round the fluffy parts of these barrel cleaners.
Then I selected a background from the Bling! It Library â€“ I could’ve used my own or designed one in Bling! It but this background I thought looked best.
I then Sharpened the image a little â€“ look at the difference between the brass bases! Then I added a little shadowing and lowered the Intensity of the shadow to make it barely visible and saved the file!
Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Each submission to include one â€œBefore Bling!â€ and one â€œAfter Bling!â€ image, accompanied by a short comment about the Bling! It software
Bling! It and TameBay will pick 20 winners who will each win a full licensed copy of Bling! It (RRP $49.95 plus VAT)
Total value of this competition is $999!
Submission Deadline Wednesday 19th December 2007, 23:59pm GMT
Winners will be announced on Friday 21st December 2007 on TameBay and BlingIt.us and each winner will be emailed their license activation key.
If you already own a copy of Bling! It? You can still enter â€“ if you win give a copy to a friend!
A link back to your website or eBay page will be provided, if requested.

I can’t take credit – Jade’s idea – and a very good one, have nearly blinged all 700 items in my shop in the last week – and my customers have noticed
Thanks for a great piece of software
700! WOW thats a humongous amount of Bling!s. That would’ve taken you forever if you wasn’t using Bling! It – that makes me feel a whole lot better 😉
