    Who won the photoshop contest?

    • AustinM123

      I would love to know the same thing

    • http://www.greenless.com Lex Lybrand

      I think it might be the image at the top. That looks like a ‘shop.

      **Nevermind. It can’t be. It’s not in the forum thread. Who knows.

      • Kate Hayes

        That image is the developer who’s g+ profile the answer to this question came from :)

    • dunnj62

      I’m guessing they picked the winner but are waiting for a confirmation of acceptance (I think they give the winner 24 hours to decide.) In any case, that would mean if you haven’t gotten an email from Phandroid, then you didn’t win.

    • robjackson81

      We are a little delayed on that one, Jacob… I will be posting a bunch of the pictures in a big post tomorrow and announcing the winner. Stay tuned.
