digikam and kde-look.org are teaming up to have a contest for the best new superimpose templates to be included in digikam's next release!

digiKam is a digital photo management application for KDE. With their new Superimpose Templates you can make it look as though you have gone to exotic places without leaving the comfort of your cubical. You can create those totally killer Christmas cards that you get from all your friends that you keep on your fridge because they make you look so popular. Now you to can have the body of (fill in the blank) without those confusing gym memberships and flash backs of high school gym locker rooms.

digiKam's Image Editor now has a new plugin to use PNG template files containing borders, frames, and composite images that can be added to or superimposed on other images hence the name Superimpose Templates. The currently selected image acts as a background and the templates can then be selected and overlaid on the image. You will be able to see the image underneath the transparent areas of the template. These templates can be created using paint programs such as The Gimp or Inkscape.

With this new Superimpose feature you can create some great images including photocards. There is a screenshot of this plugin in action on the Superimpose Templates section of digiKam's manual. Download the latest version of DigiKam and the plugin pack to experience this and many more of digiKam's awesome new features.

The categories for this contest are:
Special events or Holidays - birthday, new baby, Christmas
Places - towns, monuments, nature scenes
Hobbies - sports, computers, etc.

The 1st place entry will win a 256MB Digital Memory card and a cool new t-shirt from Revelinux Gear and the top two entries from each category will be included in the next release of digiKam.
