Photoshop Contest

Home  \  Off Topic  \  Photoshop Contest

Well, I actualy have some free-time right now, so I get to post here and have fun with photoshop etc.... Anyhoo, thought we could have a friendly contest here (IE no flaming ppl who try) with photoshop or MX.

The Rules:

1. Create a sig that has a car in it
2. Must be your own work
3. Have fun with it


Here is one that I made tonight, The car is one of mine from GT4 that I built. (So is the one in my sig)

Have fun! :thumbs:

How much does Photoshop cost?

Alright I'm down for this and jedimario if you have broadband*cough bitorrent cough* just look for photoshop cs or I think cs2 is supposed to be coming out. I'll have mine up soon :thumbs:

posted by  Spanky2324

About $500 from what I hear.

Which is why if I do this, I am using a completely legal, free photo editing software called XNView. It doesn't have as many capabilities, but it works.

*cough* you just need to know where to look is all :thumbs:

By they way is my pic with the rain coming up? The server that I am running it on is having some errors

56k :doh:

Is it a download? Where is it? How big is it?

posted by  jedimario

Go to bitorrent and download there service and then torrentspy is where you'll find it. I'm not sure how big it is but if it's compressed I'm gonna say 60-80mb. Anyways heres my sig:

...except Paint's jpeg compression quality is lousy.

I'm working on a new sig right now :thumbs:

posted by  Bubba

Umm... I enter my signature. (It is two different Imprezas blended together via photoshop).

Then I enter my favorite digital photographs (edited in contrast, but not content). They can be viewed here: *link removed by StiMan*

You can also look at the rest of my digital pics off that link. Ill be able to get some of my abstract items on here later.


Great idea Gregg! :thumbs:

posted by  StiMan

LOL...I only just noticed that in your Sig
(The two Imprezas blended together).....ironic given how I was just looking at it saying that it wasn't too big lol (the Sig that is lol....before Teggy jumps in :laughing: )

It was stickyed when I first saw it like 15 min ago.

How strange...I didn't sticky it...and I'm sure there were no other Mods here....(bear in mind us Mods can see everything....even invisible members!) :thumbs:

How did you guys learn to use Photoshop?

LOL...I obviously just didn't notice then :ohcrap:

I am in AP Photo at school so Photoshop is a skill that one needs for digital photography. :thumbs:

posted by  StiMan

Took me a few hours, and I had to do it through Paint, although I downloaded several versions of Photoshop, and XnView, but couldn't figure out how they work...

It is like anything else with computers, it just take some time, trail and error. I picked it up a couiple of years ago. For inspiration, I look at other forums for Tutorails or ideas. The one that I used here:
http://home.ripway.com/2004-3/84054/GIF/lancer-rain2.gif
I saw a guy that had it in an anime thing, so I learned how he did it and then thought it would be pretty cool with a car on a race track. A lil blurring and laying and there you go. I would be more than happy to show some basics or ideas to help ya out bro. :thumbs:

posted by  Spanky2324

That's kinda neat actually.

posted by  jedimario

There is a slight difference between using it on their desktop or using it as a signiture on a web forum. On one hand it is used in the privacy of their own home on the other it is being used publicly with or without permission. It is the latter usage (without permission) that could get somebody in trouble.

posted by  theman352001

That's just if you are using it for profits, just because people here have pictures of cars in their sigs, they don't have to pay for displaying the car publicly...

posted by  chris_knows

That's like saying all of us putting cars in our sigs could get us in trouble because the designs are copywrighted.....

posted by  jedimario

Beat you :laughing:

posted by  chris_knows

Actually I was gonna put that up last night but I got bumped from the internet and it was late so I just went to bed. Then I forgot about doing this morning. But yes technically you beat me.

posted by  jedimario

Not necessarily. Cars are somewhat different in that they are public domain. However, if a photographer took a particular picture of a car, copyrighted it, and you liked it so much you made it your sig without his permission, you could be in trouble. Same thing with the picture of the girl. If Voda took the picture himself then there should be no issue. However, if it is one of her publicity shots that she has copyrighted then he could be in violation.

posted by  theman352001

I still say BS. You are blowing this out of proportion. Post something useful, not some non-existint difference (which there is no dif between "at home" or here). Either way it is an image that the ppl using didnt take, end of story. Now back to submissions...

posted by  Voda48

Shouldn't we vote or something on the submissions?

posted by  chris_knows

You can say BS all you want.


You may have done #2 (if her picture is copyrighted).....and then you did #3.

Perhaps it is out of proportion. It probably isn't a big deal. But it is something you should be aware of.

posted by  theman352001

Like I said you are a lil kid blowing it out of proportion. I said drop it and get back to what is really at hand here once, I won't repeat myself. Nearly every single person in this forum is guilty of #2, almost none of the pics we use are our own work. Yeah who gives a flying $#^%. #3, am I making money off this pic???? No, it is purely art. So I am glad that you can use the internet, but don't post here again in this thread without a submission, you are missing the point. Mods can you get the usless stuff removed from this thread so we can get back to the reason it was made a sticky? :thumbs:

posted by  Voda48

Yes please lets get back to the topic at hand which is photoshop and sigs or whatever you can come up with using it. I just threw this sig together. Nothing too special about it.
http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y182/Spanky2324/stisig.jpg

posted by  Spanky2324

And who are you to dictate who posts on a thread and who doesn't?

In a thread about photoshopping pictures, I think that copyright laws are definately relevant. Everybody thought downloading music for free was a great thing too. Well, guess what, it wasn't. A few lawsuits later and now you have to pay for your online music.

Did you notice anything in the LAW I posted about having to make money off of it? You didn't? That's because it isn't there. All you have to do is....
#1 - use a copyrighted work without permission (prepare deriviative works - this includes art)
and
#2 - publicly distribute it

Am I accusing you? Criticizing you? No. So what's the big deal? All I'm trying to do is make people aware of their actions and potential consequences. Would you rather them go about ignorant?

Why are you getting so offensive about this? Are you pissy because you're not getting as many people as you hoped for your little contest? Perhaps you could just admit that it is something to be aware of and move on.

Show this "little kid" that you're man enough. :thumbs:

posted by  theman352001

Okay sure were using copyright images but it's not like companies are gonna come out and start suing us for using a picture of the car or using a models picture. In a way were advertising for them by joining forums and showing off their product in our sig. As for file sharing that will never be stopped cause if the programs are down theres others ways of doing it but they don't think of it that way. All you would have to do is go to your friends house with a external hard drive and save all his music into there and vice versa. Now if we could get back to the original topic. :banghead:

posted by  Spanky2324

i dont pay an i nvr will lol i downloaded photoshop for free to

posted by  hhsrastler92

very nice :thumbs:

posted by  jedimario

I'll stop once you understand...

And are you advertising according to their established marketing strategy? Or, are you associating them with something they may not want to be part of? That is why they copyright stuff. To protect their brand and its image. So that nobody could legally stick (for example) the McDonald's logo to the side of some junker and go "advertise" for them. Does CarForums really want to be associated with the Eclipse in your signiture? Perhaps. Perhaps not.


Sure there are other ways around it. Heck, back in the cassette days you could copy easily. Could the big companies come after you? Sure could. Would they? Probably not. It would cost them too much and they wouldn't get much out of you. Today it is much easier to share files. That is why the music industry went after Napster AND some of the average Joes who used it. They needed to make an example out of somebody and take away the easy method for file sharing. Now, if you want the free music, you have to go more out of your way to get it.

posted by  theman352001

I honestly think you are missing the point here. Nobody really cares right now about all this pointless babble. If you want to cry about copyright laws, make a new thread and post this conversation in there. This however is not the place to do it, so stop.

I am glad you can use the internet, but honestly I just don't give a damn. So quit looking for a pat on the back, cause I think all you are gonna get in this forum is a door hitting you in the ass. Oh and please feel free to respond to this and further take this topic off-track, just remmeber to post a sig with it :thumbs: Thank you

Ok, I was advised to attempt a clean up of this thread, but instead, I'm just gonna ask you all nicely to shut the **** up about Copy Write theft. It may be relevent in certain situations, but not really in here.....so the next person to quote a post about CW or to take this thread OT, will have their post deleted :thumbs:

posted by  Cliffy

It is you who are missing the point.


Pat on the back huh? Is that why I'm here? Gee and here I thought it was to inform those who perhaps didn't know any better. Please, I don't need your approval or praise.


And how is this going to happen?

The only way it will happen is like this........

Are you happy "censorship" Cliffy? Like my new sig picture? :thumbs: Perhaps it's too big. I'll see if I can shrink it up with some exercise.

posted by  theman352001

Wow I can make up quotes too.

At least after all the babble we got a sig. Too bad I really cant tell what the other part of the pic is.

Ahoo I really like the comic man. That is cool :thumbs:

posted by  Voda48

Are we limited to just car sigs or can we create something else also? Heres another STI sig. I need a different car idea.

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y182/Spanky2324/wrxsig.jpg

posted by  Spanky2324

Figures.....

I'm guessing you can tell the car. Perhaps not, it is the yellow thing in the lower left corner. Can you find the door? It is the brown thing right above my screen name. It may be hard to recognize because it is sideways.

Well, since you're the one who said.......

That would make the "other part" of the picture my ......can you figure it out now? mmmmmmkkkkkk

There are in fact several "artists" in the world who simply take images from other people, blend them together and do other things, and then proceed that what they have done is their own, not those who origionally took the pictures/ painted the paintings. There have been several lawsuits on this topic.

Yeah, that looks really cool. The needles are perfect. God those gauges are so familiar to me, cause we have the same model Accord.

posted by  moostang104314

how the hell did you do that? :ticking: :ticking: that is straight gangsta :orglaugh: good job

(i know the pics een there a long time just that it wouldnt load so i just saw it today)

posted by  ahoo

Thanks everyone. It's not too hard, but it took about an hour. Yes, I was bored.

I edited out both of the needles, and then, using the rpm needle as a model, I rotated it 90 degrees to the right for the tachometer, and 180 degrees for the speedometer. Then I blended in the areas around the needle to make it look like it really was in that place, and there you go.

OK, Ill vent a lil. I sell computers at Best Buy, and while working today I was showing a customer different image manipulating software titles. I told him flat out that Adobe Photoshop is the best (we dont carry Macromedia titles) and that I use it all the time. He pretty much straight up insulted me telling me I don't know how to use that software title and that I was just trying to get him to buy the more expensive title. (even though I dont work on comission (sp?)) So without really trying to tell him to f#$% off, I politely remained an ass the rest of the time he was in the store.

Long story short I was working tonight on a project to prove hime wrong, unfortunatly the bastard will never see this, but it makes me feel better. My challenge to myslef, pimp this charger into a SRT-8. Here is the stock image:

http://img377.imageshack.us/img377/2264/9953fh.opt.jpg

And here is what I came up with:

http://img97.imageshack.us/img97/964/srt8low9qd.opt.jpg

I think this is some of my best work. The new wheel set was a kick in the balls, but this is some of the work to get to that point:

http://img390.imageshack.us/img390/8559/thework5lt.th.jpg (http://img390.imageshack.us/my.php?image=thework5lt.jpg)

I added the Wheel set (took rim, add caliper and disk and orientate)
Lowered ~2.5"
New Headlamps
Mesh Grill
Tinted Windows


Work that I was too tired to finish

Hood Scope
Shave the door handles
change color of the car

Overall it is good but one piece of advice is to look for spots that you may miss when repainting the car. You can really tell on the yellow. Nice shaved handles and hood scoop though.

Well, this is the one that I was referring to...I messed it up, and made me hate that picture, but I just saw it, and decided to finish it :laughing:

It's pretty sh!t, and needs a lot of stuff...just don't know where to begin...ant suggestions?

The Panoz Z06 M3?!?!

Still, I'll bet it's better than anything I could do, nice:thumbs:

posted by  jedimario

Where's the Panoz or M3?

I used:

An Impreza intercooler, Porsche headlights and tires, and an F-250 hood air intake...I think that's it :laughing:

simpler then you imagine lol.

lot of polygonal selections, and anti-aliased tiny fonts. hell, photoshop has a font made for that shit!

posted by  Voda48

I like it but I think the edges need to be cleaned up a bit. It's obvious the picture has been cut out and pasted. I like the solid colours though, its a good idea.

posted by  Mathew

I've got a question, and I've spent hours trying to figure this out...how do you get the picture to not be a rectangle (like the roof of the car is directly against the background)?

posted by  chris_knows

The reason it looks like tha is because of the hand drawn effect........ duh. Look at it closer. (except the wheels and the grill. If I wanted a clean edge that is no prob, look a tht etut posted on extractions

how about now...
http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e326/prvnelango/prvn1.jpg

posted by  prvn

It doesn't look hand drawn, like I said, it looks cut and pasted. It would still have the effect you want if the edges looked nicer. They are pixely and the lines are not clear. When you hand draw an outline, you see all of the line, not just bits of it. The roof and the hood is the main problem. If that part was cleaned up a bit it would look better. I think its the initial cut, when you first extracted the car from whatever picture it came from.

No need to get excited, its just a little contructive critiscism.

Oh and I don't know what the last thing you said was....

Not simple, takes forever

Theres different ways I use to get outlines, but they're never perfect like that, so I guess it must have been a tad tedious.

posted by  Voda48

That looks really nice, but one thing looks out of place there...the little crescents inside the exhaust pipes don't seem to fit in, but other than that it looks good. I'll have to try that some time.

had a lil free time so I was working on adding some highlights....

Looks pretty good, the only thing I would change is the left tail lights. The right side looks good with the line on the inside to make it 3D. On the left side though, the line's are on the outside, which throws off the perspective.

Had a lot of time today so decided to rice out a honda accord...
i know the wheels look crappy... thats because I normally would rip the rims off some car and then paste it but this time i got the calipers from the brembo website and the wheels from some other website and put them together. btw thats my first scissor door job... :smoke:

it looks very nice:thumbs: . The doors look like the persepective could be adujsted, but I like the paint choice.

posted by  Voda48

Thanks. what do i do to get the wheels to look more real? darken the brakes? and also.. why did the wheels turn out so flat?

posted by  prvn

That outlining thing really is hard lol...but still looks better than just using the brush...and it's easier too lol. Here's what I came up with...It definitely needs some work, though:

posted by  chris_knows

Well I would have to see the origanl wheel that you were using. One other thing to mention as well is going to be the reflection on the door that is in the air. You might have to change that up a little to keep it looking realistic. (going to be hard)
