Ok first off congrats voda for reaching 1,000 posts but I thought I'd post up another simple tut for you guys since I was fooling around last night. This one is for night vision and is very simple.

Just open the pic you want and this time I'll be using a pic of some reindeer getting phunky lol:Reindeer pic

Alright now we go to Image>Adjustments>Hue/Saturation and use these settings(please note that I checked the colorize box):

With that done now we need to give it a more grainy look. For this we will use Filter>Artistic>Film Grain with the settings set at 5,2,10

For the last step we will brighten it a tad more. Go to Image>Adjustments>Brightness/Contrast and just add in +15,0

Now were all done and you should have came out with something like this:

Here's a little something I put together (first time, and found it in media arts class)...I figured I should post it here, because over 90% of the work is done in PhotoShop...mine didn't turn out quite right, but I'll keep trying over the weekend, and we'll see what will happen:

http://media.putfile.com/pimp6379

It was through a process called rotoscoping...if anyone is interested, I will post the link (It was meant for macs, and older versions of Photoshop (I believe) so some stuff went through differently, but there's a buttload that you can find on google...

The video doesn't work for me. I've heard of rotoscoping but I kinda forgot what it was. Time to go check!!!

It worked for me...but I played around with it a bit, and came up with another one, pretty close, but the frame rates are smoother, but still need some work:

http://media.putfile.com/projectt

If it doesn't work, I uploaded it from another place



I found another site, and took the best from both, so I could whip up a tutorial if anyone is interested...It isn't hard, but takes about 60-90 minutes...

EDIT: The second link didn't work for me, so here's another link...but while waiting for one to register, I uploaded to another place too :

Slamming your Civic

"Rice out your Civic"



Ok, first thing is first. This will be a multiple step tut on how to "rice" out a car. The first step today is going to be the easiest. Today we are going to switch the wheels out and slam the civic.



Now here I went and made my own custom wheels, extracted a pic from a wheel shop, took a brake rotor and added a caliper, painted it, then merged it with the wheel. But for this, you can just take a wheelset from another car.

1. With both pics open, resize the wheel so that it is proportional to the car you want to use it on.
2. If the orientation is different, flip along the horizontal Got to Edit-> Transform-> Flip horizontal.



As you can see, the wheel is not proportional, mess around with the transform so that both perspective and size fit.



Now this open space does not look real, ie shading, so grab your lasso tool, or paint brush and shade it out.



So, Grab a section of raock/gravel area, copy with ctrl+c and then using the magnetic lasso, select the area within, and do the following:



Now mess with the levels of the areas, to do this right, use the lasso tool to select the area within the wheel and go to image-> Adjustments-> Levels and tone them down a little so they are darker.

Here is what I got after doing it quickly:



Now it is time to lower the car. There are several ways to do this, prob the best is using the lasso tool. Grab your magnetic lasso tool and do the following:



With the area around the car selected, use the move tool and lower your car (hold shift keeps it aligned)

Here is what I finished with:

[IMG] http://img494.imageshack.us/img494/7154/civiclow9jw.jpg [/IMG]

Total time (if not writing tut at the same time) ~15 min

What should we do next to the civic? I will take suggestions

That last bit on lowering the car is the same tut I gave on supercars.net a few years back. It solves a common issue with people that only grab the car body and lower it, but end up with having to fill in the area above the new roof. Just grab the whole top of the pic so you only have to blend the bits from the bumpers ******d. So much simpler.

I used that technique (as well as others) to make the Taurus Coupe:



Same thing is used to make this Jag coupe (though I didn't lower it):

Gregg, wouldn't it be easier to use the healing brush for the space between the wheels?...It seems like it would take less time...

The healing brush doesn't work well with areas of large tonal differences (such as shown there), nor does it do a good job of bringing in full image detail into those types of areas. Remember, the healing brush blends new information with the old in an area. In these cases, you don't want any of the old info, so a better job will be accomplished with the clone tool.
