    Thread: VW Vortex Guide to Photoshop...

    1. 04-19-2005 05:21 PM #71
      This thread is really great... I hope everyone keeps posting tips and their creations.

      In an earlier post I posted a link for GIMP, a free opensource alternative to Adobe's Photoshop.

      There were a few complaints for the program, mainly the clunkey menus and difficultly to do heavily used tasks.

      This has all been solved with GIMPshop. Its the same FREE opensource GIMP, but it has Photoshop menus and tasks. Basically anything you can do in Photoshop can now be done in GIMP the EXACT SAME WAY!
      Any tutorial that you have for Photoshop can now be used for GIMP.

      Its worth checking out http://blog.yumdap.net/archive....html

      I recommend downloading it as soon as you can because I do not know if Adobe will have a problem with a program that is identical to its own.

      Photoshop is well worth the money, but if you want to try some of the techniques in this thread and dont have a lot of money, give it a try.

      Here is a link to see what GIMPshop looks like:

      I will also recommend GIMP even though I use Photoshop. Photoshop is great, but not worth the money if you just want to play around with cars. Luckily, my computer came preloaded with Photoshop, so that's what I use. GIMPshop is just as good.

      I remember when GIMP came out!

      I'm not sure if any1 knows what I am talking about, but for some reason when I am using the brush now, it shows the brush and not the circle for close up detail. Where do I go to change that?

      preferences... display and cursors..

      also, if you are zoomed in alot.. and the brush is big, it wont show you the size of it.

      It is possible that you also have your caps lock on. When the caps is on your tools turn into cross hairs.

      Choose the photo you want to put the border on,
      Click, Image, then Canvas Size, then enter the size, ie thickness of the border ud like and make sure that the white box where it says "Anchor" is in the center of the arrows. Then u pick the color of the border at the bottom where it says canvas extension color.

      Thats it

      I'm probably bringing this back from the dead, but here goes...

      What's the best way to color match a part that you've photoshopped into a picture to match your paint?

      I've compiled an ongoing piece of what I want my car to end up being using styling cues from others. As it sits, I have a Jazz Blue part on my Silverstone (Digitally, to keep things clear) car, and cannot match the two.

      Any hints?

      select the part using any of the selection methods mentioned here and use the hue/saturation sliders and eyeball it till it matches.

      i couldnt find your other question..

      photoshop kicks ass. I have been using it since the dawning of PS4. My company has already put their orders on for CS3 and their even going to ave adobe come over and train us on the new features! (They have never done that for use before.)

      I live and die photoshop and can do very scary things with it (I sent my Dad a PSed photo of him being "caught" by a speed camera with it looking like it was part of a news broadcast trying to track down the driver. I did that for April Fools, it was hilarious!). It's such a powerful tool that can be used for almost any medium.

      Someday I will get around to posting up some work I have done, but currently most of what I do sits behind copyright blankets that don't allow me to share publicly

      With that said, I will be happy to help anyone with any questions about it. Just PM me since I bounce around vortex and don't always come in here.

      one thing that alot of people miss, is the lighting affect. its important to change that on a layer if you are grabbing a photo or a piece of a photo that has different lighting.

    31. 05-04-2007 02:29 AM #101
      Could you guys photoshop me a 1997 ford ranger XLT extended cab. Black lowered to about 5-8 inches off the ground, 20 inch big rig conversion wheels, dually rear axle and fenders, possibly short smoke stacks, 15% tinted windows, projector headlights, smoked corners, smoked tails, tonneau cover, shaved handles, low profile mirrors, plus anything else you would personally add. Thanks so much
