Edit Me 2012 - Week 5

Welcome to this week's Edit Me Challenge! Our guest judge for the week is Linda from Coach House Crafting. Be sure to visit Linda on Twitter and Facebook, and thank her for providing us with this awesome photo! Here is a little bit more about her:

Hey there! I'm Linda, 40 year old mum to 21 year old twin girls and married to my soul mate (corny I know) Wayne for almost 22 years. My relatively new blog is Coach House crafting (on a budget) and has mainly focused on my furniture makeover projects for our new home, however that will change this year. I regularly enter the Edit Me challenges and this has made me more determined to reaquaint myself with my DSLR this year and spend more time on photography.

As for the photo, I am lucky enough to live surrounded by stunning scenery and beautiful beaches. This image was taken just down the road at 'Latheronwheel' harbour when a friend came up from England for a visit.


This challenge is all about taking a photo and making it your own with the editing program of your choice! It is also about learning a little bit from each other, and exploring new styles! There are no restrictions (unless specifically stated within the post for the week), but we do ask that you share a little bit about how you arrived at your finished product.

Here are the details:
  1. When you link up, please use your edited photo as the thumbnail!
  2. If you use the mouseover code or right-click protect your images, you need to either add a copy to the flickr pool (preferred) or it will be assumed that you agree to allow us to use a screenshot of your entry if you are a winner!
  3. The judge for the week will choose the top 3 edits from the entries, and the overall winner of the 3 
  4. If you would like to post multiple edits, specify which one is your choice for judging. Only one photo is eligible for judging, and it must be clear which one you are entering.
  5. Don't forget so share your editing steps, or some tips and tricks so we can learn from each other!
  6. Don't forget to use the #editmechallenge tag when you share your posts on Twitter. 
  7. The linky will open at the time of the post on Wednesday, and close the following Saturday at 11:59 PM (central time).
  8. Winners will be announced the following Tuesday.
  9. Don't forget to visit the other participants, and leave some comment love! As usual, the more you participate the more feedback you will get!
So, there you have it! Have fun, and can't wait to see what you come up with! And, as always, if you are interested in judging or sponsoring a challenge, be sure to let us know!

Edit Me


  1. Can someone please tell me how I grab the button and add it to my blog post with my edit? I have the button on my blog, does it matter where I put it? HELP!

  2. Right click on the HTML under the button photo and copy. Go to your blog, change mode from compose to HTML and paste at the very bottom of all the mumbo/jumbo you see on your screen. Now, go back to compose and you see the edit me button that you can place anywhere you want in your blog post. this is the way I do it....there may be other ways, but this one is tried and true. Hope I've helped.
