A blend challenge is when you take two or more pictures (usually provided by me) and you blend them together. Blending means arranging the pictures and using brushes, text, colors, and those sorts of things to spice up a simple graphic.
The following challenges are run in this community:
 Regular (35-40 specific pictures provided by your maintainer(s)
 Add Effects (4-6 premade blends for you to add effects to)
 Icon Challenges (4-6 pictures to choose from; 2 icons can be submitted)
 Colorization (adding color techniques to a black and white image; achieving lifelike results)
 Blend of the Month (free raign on images; theme chosen by your maintainer(s)
 Please remember that you must host your own blends.
 Let's make it simple; .jpg, .gif or .png only. Please, NO animated .gifs or .bmp files
 Save entries like this:

 E-mail you entry to firstname.lastname@example.org

 Challenges will usually last from 1 – 2 weeks
 There are no size restraints. Use your own judgment as to how big or small your blend should be.
*****Just remember to make blends bigger than 300x300.
 I don't care about profanity. Use all the bad language you want.
*****Sex is also fine; just make sure that nothing in your blends violates the LJ TOS.
 Anti-Fan Blends are also welcomed.
 Please do not enter blends you have already entered to other challenges.
*****I may not catch you every time, but if I do, you will be disqualified.
 Unnecessary arguments or rudeness will NOT be tolerated.
