Could someone take a picture in their escort looking out as if they were driving.. like RIGHT where your eye would be, i just want to skrew around with photoshop a bit and maybe make a neat-o template and have like a escort driving simulation
yeah paul way to go!!!! I have been playing with photoshop here and there but i can´t get the rims I want to put on to look good, or even with cutting and pasting. So if anyone coudl explain that to me please go ahead.
Well, you´ve got to get the contrast, brightness, and shade just right. Then you have to position it properly and blur the edges to make it look like they´re supposed to be there. Or you could just send me the pictures and I´ll chop them for you. Email is uberscort(at)knology(dot)net
the only problem is doing a thing called keystoning. It´s when you have a 2d object but basically "tilt" it on the z axis as if it were a 3d object. I haven´t figured out a way to do it in photoshop or gimp, but if somebody else knows, I´d love to hear it.
as you see in relli´s pic, his car was perpendicular to the viewer, and the pic of the rims he used lines right up, so with a little careful editing he was able to make it look realistic. However, if the picture of his car had been taken at an angle, (say a 3/4 view), then the pics of the rims he would have used would have been incorrect. the perspective would have been wrong. The wheels would be viewed dead-on and the car is at an angle, if you dig what I mean...
anyway, if anybody knows how to do keystone transformations in photoshop, post it up because I personally don´t know.
