I just got myself into Photoshop and started playing around with a few pictures of my old 911. Don't know if anyone else is in to the same thing, but its quite addictive. It's also quite good for looking at how your Porsche would look if you did some mods.

Here's a pic of my 911 with Chromed paintwork.



If anyone else has done the same thing please post them here....

Here is a Genesis Coupe I did for a small contest a year or so ago. Lots of "Ferrari" on it. I do more realistic requests for people now and again.

Well done. I'm still flogging CS2 and I still have not mastered the basics. I think I need to find a decent instructor here locally. The books and online tutorials just don't cut it.

Maybe I should have started with Elements - your work looks great. ;)

Thanks Guys. I didnt read a book, I just kept playing and finding out what things do. There are also some youtube videos worth watching.

I did this one today:



The picture was taken against a hanger. I deleted that and added a sky shot I took while at the beach. I have also tried to add some white and orange streaks to the sky. I have also tried to make the windows transparent so you get a feel for the sky through the windows

you still have a reflection on the side on car, the sky layer isnt trimmed enough at the bottom and lighting effect isnt even through the picture. overall not to bad of a job.

I'm still figuring things out. How did you make the paint chrome, or any other color? Help is appreciated.
For the chrome, I selected with the lassoo tool all the panels I wanted to chrome, then copied them to a new layer. Then it was a matter of fiddling with the levels and colour saturation. Its not an exact science for the chrome effect, you just have to keep adjusting until it looks right. As I de-saturated the colour it starts to appear chrome.

Yeah, im still learning. The reflection is a tough one for me. Have you any advice how to get rid of it. I tried adding a layer over the car panels and colouring it the same as the car using the colour picker. I tried then using the multiply effect, but it didnt look quite right, so I took it off.

Decided to have another play today. I took an image of my car and removed the background and added some sky and a moon. Also removed some reflections from car and played around with the contrast




I then had a play with the red and ble channels in the colour of the sky and added a lense flare

That is exactly how I learned. I just kept messing with all the options and got creative. Worth1000.com is a great site to check out peoples amazing work.

Looking good on the Porsche chops Pete!
