So I've been wanting to get my scort painted blue for some time now, just unsure as to what color blue to get. Right now I don't have the money, but I'd still like to know what it would look like. As you can tell by my signature, I had a friend of mine do it and it didn't turn out bad at all. So the challenge is to see who can do it better. Can you make it so the car is totally blue? Get rid of that red stripe? Add some effects of your own? New rims? Maybe change that red stripe to a white stripe? (No.... of course I'm not trying to get some free photoshop work done and disguising it as a contest/challenge.... whatever gave you that idea.....:p)

Now bear in mind these are rather large pictures, and since they're hosted on my server here at home and my upstream connection blows a bunch of monkeyballs... it might take a few minutes to get them.

This pic is the original picture before I tried to crop it rather crappily. I put a few paper towels down so I didn't have to fight with the lasso tool when it was trying to grab on to the ground under the tire instead of the tire

This is the car after I cropped it crappily :)

And here is my friends photochop. She did a great job IMO.

p.s. I'd prefer the car in blue, any shade of blue that you prefer, or as close to RGB: 24,80,131 as you can get :)

damnit how did u web host successfully w/ security... the first night i got my page up and running i couldnt get frontpage to work with it, i couldnt get it to recognize uname/passwords with frontpage...i got hacked...turned a D.O.S. on my system...locked me out of my own fuckin computer....had to reformat XP....then had to spend another 5 hours using a file recovery program to decrypt the files from the "documents and settings" folder that XP so willingly encrypted before she said her last prayers....so i gave up...so if you can tell me how you did it safely and successfully, i will be in your debt...thanks

Heh, well first of all, I use FreeBSD. It's a version of UNIX developed by UC Berkely oh so many years ago. It used to be really popular, more popular than Linux even, until it came under fire from big corporate people that wanted a piece of the pie as well. Well, needless to say they didn't give in, but pretty much lost all their momentum and that's where Linux started picking up users like mad. FreeBSD, and actually all BSD OS's are still under heavy development and finally starting to pick up users again. The main difference between BSD and Linux is that BSD was designed to be secure. FreeBSD, by default, doesn't come with any extraneous tools that the user doesn't want. It doesn't enable telnet crap, FTP or anything excecpt the SSH protocol, and what a beautiful protocol it is.

That's just a little background information on it I guess :p

So my question to you is...

What operating system where you trying to get this running on? Windows is definitely not known for it's security in applications like this, and it's like that if you were trying to use Linux, some crappy, insecure, very exploitable program was installed in install process and you had no idea about it.

I have an extra computer set up as a server running FreeBSD and she's never been hacked, and always been there for me :) I'm also running FreeBSD as my primary laptop's operating system, it looks ubersecksie too ( http://www.halfzero.net/~ibri/kahakai-screenie.png ) I don't know if that answered all your questions, if not, shout at me back :)

edit-
Oh, and thanks to contestant #1 :p

LOL, no, everyone has WRX Pearl Blue. Don't conform!!! FIGHT THE SYSTEM!!...or stuff...

Yeh that's about the color blue I'm going for, seeing it now I kinda agree the white stripe probably won't look that good. I do want some sort of white accent though, other than just rims. I also have clear corners on there now, I should have posted a picture with those since eventually I want to make clear tails too to kinda give it a cool look, again I don't know how good that will look either, but it seems to go well in my head :)
