"Error loading PSD file: Unsupported color mode: CMYK"
I got that after loading up GIMP 2.67 off of download.com.

Nice stuff. You're right - simple and effective.
But I'm a little confused about something. I thought we were only allowed one entry. Even though both of yours are based on the same design, they're clearly 2 different submissions.

Had I known that we could put up subtle variations, I would have posted again because my original image had the ATI logo accidentally hidden when I submitted. I thought I couldn't go back and resubmit with the image I originally intended so I left it alone.

Ya, I got confused too, which is why I submitted two designs, but either can be accepted, depending on the judges' decision!

I'm gonna do some more just for fun and add them to my Facebook.

There's no way I could compete with you guys, I'm crap at designing any thing and I don't have the knowledge for photo-shop
Good luck all.

@Electric Dragon: It's probably best if you choose your best one, and remove the second submission yourself. Else depending on the mood of the judge, either the first one you posted will be chosen by default, or you'll be disqualified for not following rules. And we don't want the second one to happen do we!

@ColourDood: The submissions won't be collated till the deadline (22nd Jan), so if you want to go back and tweak/improve your original design before the deadline then please feel free to do so. Just make sure that there's only one submission in your post(s) when you've done.

As they're all AMD images, and they're running this competition with us, I imagine it'll be fine.

well, i pretty much suck at design and have no Photoshop experience, i would love to be able to compete but looking at whats posted i would be a laughing stock. looking at the entries at least we are attracting people to the site(about 90 % new members in this contest?) Nice work to the new members, hope you all stick around.

Hi Dan,
Thanks for clearing that up. Instead of creating a new post, I just edited my first one. I don't feel like it's missing anything now. :D

How do we add them? I was looking for some kind of "ADD PHOTO" button but didn't see one.
