Title: Can anyone photoshop these alloys on please??
Post by: aphilpot on August 21, 2010, 09:50:29 pm
Any chance someone how is half good at photoshop try these different alloys on a GPA SS. I don't have photoshop and have tried using another program with no luck at all. Just wondering if they'd look any good  ;D

Much obliged, from a fellow Abarthisti with a new A500C arriving next month.

The last ones don't look to bad... reminiscent of the option alloys on the red GPA, which obviously look the nuts IMHO  :whistle:

 :thumb: that is some brilliant photoshopping!
those red ones actually look pretty cool.. not quite the same red as the car tho.

In response to the previous post, the red element of the alloys have been adjusted to match the bodywork.

Just added second picture, with the black/red combination further refined to match rest of car.

That really is some good photoshopping  :thumb: how the hell do you do that?

I think alloys from pics 1 and 2 definately look good might have to invest in some, would cost a fortune though if you had to have to get the red specially made to the same colour of the body work surely  ???
They would look even better after the fox middle bit has been popped out and replaced with the red scorpion centre  :thumb: can that be added to the photoshop as well or is that too much hassle?

I really like the FX2 RED BLK ones.  Any chance of seeing them Photoshopped onto a plain black A500?  I think we should start a thread on basic Photoshop how to's, or is this more advanced?

Excellent work  :thumb:

Following a request from the OP here, I attach three visuals of said car, with red scorpion logo in place of the Fox logo on the alloys.

Photo Shop Elements 9 is very, very good. I upgraded to it from Elements 0 last year and it has been a superb tool in my graphic and photo work.

There are far more slicker software but I think I could find a better use for the £500 elsewhere! (stuff for my new A500C!)

Cheers for that.  I take it you changed the colour of the Campavolo Grey stock Abart pic.  It looks really high contrast and I assume that's how you got it to be black..  Im now wondering what it looks like with the all black with thinner red stripes on.  I'm going to have to invest in Elements I think, and buy a book ; )

I made an typing error earlier, it was Elements 7 and not 9. It has since then been supersceded by Elements 8 and you can find a good selection on Amazon in the software section. They are offering Elements 8 for £27. :o  I paid over £70 for it last year!!  >:(

Like riding a bike for the first time or learning to drive, you tend to pick up as you go along. I was totally hopeless at first, and almost packed in!!

But yes, something to do with Photoshop on Abarthisti would be a terrific idea.  :thumb:

Fair enough, but it took a long time to learn. I find the internet very useful but I don't even look at Facebook at all times.

I note from your profile that you're 22 years old. I assumed you were clever on the internet!

I have a disablility which do hold me back in general life. I fail in some areas and succeed in some areas.

Google images is your friend, I just typed in 'black A500'.....copyright belongs to the donor and not me. It used to be funk white.

I managed to dig out some decent pictures from my visits to Research Garage and here's two pictures of said car with both black alloys with a) thick edging b) thin edging.

Real time pictures are always better than indoors publicity shots.
