crazygutgut, you got some serious skills! That pinto looked so real that I could hardly tell it was photoshp'd. How long does this all take you, and how long did it take you to learn? I have photo shop at home, but never even opened it yet. Is it pretty easy?

Thanks. I have been using Pshop since the beginning, back when it was just photoshop. I have worked as a freelance graphic artist for a while, and even before I found this site I enjoyed photo-chopping cars. check out my other attempts here
My Car Directory

A car can take anywhere from 1-3 hours. Without giving up all my trade secrets I will give you guy the following advice.

1. PHOTO QUALITY! The better the photo, the better the out come. some car angles work better for photo chopping than others, for example a perfect side view is the best, then I prefer a 3/4 view (the pinto is close to that) I also try to get photos that are over 400x400 pixels. I like crisp and clear shots.

2. software. I have not used other photo manipulating products. but paint shop isnt gonna work. Photoshop is the best, every one knows someone that can get you a copy, even if it is pshop 5 or 6 it is still a good tool.

3. LAYERS ! photo shop has the ability to use Layers, it is best descriped as having a ton of clear peices of paper over your original artwork. it allows you to make multiple copies of the original photo or remove elements of the original and get the tricky things just right, like roof chopping. you can add each new element on its own layer, and adjust it accordingly.

4. EXPERIMENT!
Try using the blur filters to get lines and shadows right.
Try using "overlay" on a layer with the color element of a car
Try using Transform-Scale to chop and stretch a roof.
Try using Adjust-color balance or Adjust-Hue Saturation to change the color of a photo.

just mess around with all the aspects of pshop, and get familiar with what each thing does, then you can figure out what to use and when.

Excuse me? A slammed Hummer? A Viper wagon? PUHLEEEEEEZ!

Just poked around your gallery Crazygut, your work is great! I've been trying to envision the V8 Spitfire I'm building. I was hoping to play with a plastic model kit but no such beast exists. You've got me thinking that with Photoshop I should be able to see what she'll look like with flaired fenders, black sidepipes, silver paint with black stripes, roll bar ... hint hint, got any Spifire pics?

I sent you a private message with details Crazy. Don't have a picture of mine because it's scattered all over the shop, but here's a pic from the web of what I'm working with:

I call it Project SOS (Skateboard On Steroids)

Warm Spit
Project SOS completed
couldnt get the pipes to look black and good, so I left them chrome. also the fender flares looked lame unless they were a different color
but it gets you closer to what you want!
dont send me beer, send me gin and tonics.



Gluck

WAY cool Crazygut! That's AWESOME! I'm gonna print that out and hang it on my tool box for inspiration (right next to Miss Snap-On).

You've captured the paint scheme, hood scoop and side louvers exactly as I envisioned them. I also like the shave job on the trim, perfect! And the windshield chop is GREAT! I think it's a must, although not quite as extreme as you show.

I wouldn't have thought black fender flares would work here, but it's not bad! Especially if I black the lower body to match and go with flat black side pipes... man you've got me thinking in about a thousand directions!

Thanks, I'm mixing that gin and tonic for you as we speak ... oops there went that one, let me try another ... oops, it's gone too ... oh well, you'll have to settle for my eternal gratitude!
