I got the pic about a year ago on some guy's website which I have since lost (Bummer). I'm not sure how too speed up the rain, the transition is set to no time between frames (or 0).

Rice out your Civic part ?

Ok, I have tried many differnet ways to change the color of different things whether it be a car or a plane.... Long story short, here is one that I came up with that seems to work the best.

Step 1. First open your image and using the magnetic lasso tool, sleect the painted area of your car. Create a new layer with this slection and grab a brush. Select the color of your choice (the darker the better) and begin to brush. Now notice in this shot I have only selected the paint and not the windows/lights etc... to do this, when selecting with the magentic lasso, hold down Alt and slect those areas you wish to exclude.


You can also use a much larger brush to save time. The great part is you can be sloppy and not have to worry because you will be coloring within the lines.


Now go to your layers palette and select "Color" There you have it. Now you can mess with your levels and make the paint job stand out. If you are interested, you can do a camleion paint effect by holding Cntl + Click on the layer you had used as your base. Once you have that layer loaded, create a new layer and using the gradient tool, create the folowing:


Example of all said and done wit hadjustments made:

It looks really sweet so far, but the side panels don't seem to match in colour...I'm working on ricing the Civic but between several other projects, so it might take me a while to finish it

Looks nice though

Hard Extractions in Photoshop

Hard Extractions in PS
So, I have seen a lot of people trying to exract images in PS and having them look a little less than perfect. Here is a tut that I have used myself and find it very helpful, the idea is to take a stock image and get the following:




Things like hair or cars can be tought to extract, this will make it much easier

I'll make a tutorial for user bars because they look cool, they're easy to make and I'm bored

First make a new image, with these dimensions:
350px width
19px length


Choose the background colour that you want in your user bar.
(I'm using the CF colour: )

It looks invisible, but it just matches the background lol...

Now grab the Gradient tool and make a gradient to your liking:


This next part you don't have to do, but it looks better with them (Scan lines)...
Make a new image (6X6px) and zoom in to 1600% (Max)

Grab the pencil tool, and set the colour to black. Set the weight to 1px.
Make a line from one corner to the other, like so:


Go to Edit>>Define Pattern>> Name it Scan Lines (Or whatever you want lol)

Go to your original picture now, and select the Pattern Stamp Tool and find your pattern:

Make sure Impressionist IS NOT checked, and Alligned IS checked (took me like 30 minutes to figure it out ) Also, make sure the brush is big enough.



Continued in next post (8 picture limit)

Continued from previous post (8 picture limit)

Just drag it across the picture and it should give you scan lines. So far we have this:


Mess around with the opacity until you're satisfied. Then set the flow to around 50-70% Here's what I came up with:


We can finally put in a picture...I'm making one for CF so I'll use the CF "logo" (It doesn't have to fit)...Also, add text, on the right side. I used "BankGothic Md BT" Size 12. Here's what I came up with then:


Now right click on the text layer in the Layers section (F7) and go to blending options. Go to Drop Shadow, and mess around with the settings until your text has enough shadowing (I used 5px, 6%, 5px without global light, shadow angle 0 degrees and 75% opacity.)

Now make a new layer, and put it on top of all the other ones. Use the Round Marquee Tool, and select from the top left corner to the top right corner, but only about 1/2 of the whole banner:

Now change the opacity of this layer in Blending Options...I used 15%:


And there's the final result:


Time it took me to make my first one was like half an hour because I couldn't find some of the stuff lol. Enjoy
