The PHOTOSHOPPERS & LIGHTROOMERS CIRCLE –– Announcement Post
| READ IT ALL Before You Ask For Inclusion#CircleSharingForThePeoplePLC
(Do NOT tag images with this hashtag!
It's time again! One of my most popular circles is about to be filled by you! By now everybody knows that I have emptied all shared circles in order to bring some more freshness and interestingness into them again –– the same with this fifth edition
of my very popular Photoshoppers & Lightroomers Circle
. That means that the PLC
will be all new, fresh & hot as well, and you will have an excellent way of promoting yourself and find new interesting image wizards via this interesting circle.AGAIN: READ the WHOLE post BEFORE you ask for inclusion.What is the PLC?
It is a circle for photographers that use Photoshop or Lightroom (or both, or GIMP, or, or...) and mainly
share their original
work in their feeds. Whether you're a happy amateur or a pro doesn't really matter, as long as you really like photography and image editing. So... I welcome you to join the rest of us and meet new people with the same interest as yourself; great photography and image editing/manipulation.I will share this circle with everybody on Monday, November 5.What must YOU do?
As with all my circles, there are no free rides. Here are the rules (steps you must take) to get accepted:
1) –– Plus
this post. Why? It's very simple: if you
want to get promoted in this circle, you must be prepared to promote your fellow artist as well. Do NOT
remove this reshared post from your feed immediately after I have added you to the circle. Doing so will get you banned from all my future circle shares (=blocked).
2) –– Make sure that you do NOT post a lot of YouTube clips, animated GIF's, blog post teasers etc. in your feed. I don't mind a few reshares of other people's work (that's what Google+ is all about) but you must
mainly share your own original work on your page. I want ths circle to be as clean as possible and focus on great photography/image editing –– not other bling-bling.
3) –– Ask for inclusion in the comments (must be in this post, not the one you reshare) and please state what image editing software you use *and
that you HAVE completed all steps*. I will
check every feed but I won't check twice. Do not
add links to Google+ albums, external websites etc. in the comments. If you do, your comment will be deleted.Have something to say about my circles? Wanna know what others gained from being in the circles? Then go here: https://plus.google.com/116219534929662479848/posts/7Evg2rSE2Hv NOTE! If you see that I have plussed your comment, then you know that I have added you to the circle. I didn't PLUS your comment? Make sure that you have reshared this announcement post publicly (and not just to one of your circles) and let me know that you did so.This announcement post is hash-tagged with #CircleSharingForThePeoplePLC so that you may mute the reshares this post will generate. That way you will avoid seeing multiple copies of this post in your feed and your adrenaline level will stay normal. I will add a new hash-tag for every announcement and circle post in the future. That way you won't miss out on any of the action but still can mute all the duplicate reshares.
Here is an excellent add-on that will help you to mute the reshares: http://code.google.com/p/nonplus/
