access to paint simulation software?

I have seen paint simulation software before. You can use a photo of your car then change the paint color as many times as you like. Anyone have access to this?

I haven't seen that particular picture before. That's great, I am also wondering what it would look like in plum crazy purple.

I was hoping to see it in plum crazy purple, but so far it doesn't appear anyone has gone there.

if you have photoshop you can create a selection, save it, and open up the selection to color inside of it with less than 100% opacity.

See post #9

Computer programs are fine, but IMO you need to see real cars out in the sunlight to really get an idea of what works and what doesnt

Post 9 refers to photoshop. The color changes I have seen done w/ photochop are not the best quality, and would be much worse if someone like myself were to try and do it.
I need plug and play, lol.

I haven't tried this but maybe somebody will want to try it and let us know how it works, it sounds very interesting. Color change is under freebies

Must have photoshop cs2 or higher to use the tool... I would think the photo of the black rambler rebel would be a good canvas to work on.
