List of Sites with Photoshop Tennis and Design Collaboration for Graphic Designers
A game of sport for professional designers, in Photoshop Tennis (aka Photoshop Battle and Layer Tennis) an image is the “ball,” and it is lobbed back and forth (over email) between designers, each adding a layer and hitting back a flattened version of the image until one designer admits defeat, a set layer limit is reached or if both designers agree the image had been completed. If I have missed any active forums, please let me know and I will add them to the list.
12Stone Photoshop Tennis - 12 Stone’s Thunderdome provides a forum for people to collaborate on photoshop tennis and variants on it.
DesignLogue - A designologue is a conversation between two designers in the medium they understand best - design. Comparisons can be made to Coudal’s Photoshop Tennis where two designers alternately modify the others image using Photoshop.But instead of one designer versus another, the two converse. No winners. No losers. Just good conversation.
Flickr Photoshop Tennis - A popular photographic community, Flickr also offers a Photoshop Tennis public forum.
Graphic Design Community Design Fun - A new page for design collaboration fun including Photoshop Tennis, Web Design Tennis, Graphic Design Tennis, The Funny Fake News Design Game, and more.
Layer Tennis - Coudal Partners introduced and made Photoshop Tennis popular in 2001. After a hiatus has re-launched as Layer Tennis, an ongoing experiment in web publishing, design and commerce. The site’s forums provide an opportunity for the public comment on the matches between recognized graphic artists and to make their own improvements. You might get plucked for a match depending on the skill you demonstrate in the forum.
More Pixels Graphical Collaborations - Morepixels playgrounds functions as a creative platform which stimulates and archives freestyle graphical collaborations, commonly referred to as ‘e-mail art’, ‘photoshop tennis’ or ‘photoshop battles’. I don’t see how you start a new game.
Photo Chopz - Photo Chopz has two photoshop contests each week. One is a themed contest where members are giving an idea and are required to create their own images. The second is a “chop this pic” contest where an image is provided and members can edit it any way they want.
Streetfire’s PhotoChop Forum - A site for automotive enthusiasts, Photoshop battles provide the opportunity for you design your dream car without leaving the safety of your desk.
Urban Collective - Once you submit your details, you will be matched up with another designer to play. Volley away until you are both happy with the image!
Worth1000 Photoshop Tennis - A popular Photoshop tutorial and contest forum, Worth1000 also offers head-to-head battles.
