Can I Get Some Photoshop Help Please?

I have been working on a rendering for my build. I have worked a photo of a similar truck into something I want to build, but, I have been using a program called GIMP and I am clueless as to how to do some things with it.

Can someone change the paint on this to a dark cherry with black fenders for me?



I also like the idea of a 2-2.5 inch chop


You know maybe it's too short as well I should have shortened a little less

here's something really quick to tie you over. It's not perfect but you get a good idea.

That's exceptional Valkyrie5.7 since the pic is so small and the side has the glare on it. I don't have gimp so I'm watching how you guys work.

GIMP sucks, I have done a coupe of pictures and it works. I have made multiple changes to this picture, but it could definitely be more user friendly. I am in awe as to how fast valkrye did the colour change and it looks great especially having taken only minutes.

Thanks guys. It's actually really simple and fast to do a quick color change for most finishes. Just the magnetic lasso tool and the Hue/Saturation function. It works for most colors.

GIMP works ok for the most part. but without instructions, it's kind of hard to get used to... I mostly use the auto select scisors.

Hey matt, it would be a lot easier if you had a straight on shot of those wheels.

not sure what size the wheels are, so I don't know if they should be turned into a low profile tire or not.. picture is quite small, but I did drop it a bit.. being honest, I don't think the wheels would fit well

the stock wheels on the car are 16 and going to 18 and 17 or 20 and 18
