Creative Interpretations: Red Truck
Please only post your results here at RP and not at any other Forum, many thanks!
Have just dld your photo. Such a nice truck and how well maintained, looks almost like a collectors piece !
The idea here would be to use your photo and manipulate it with a creative finish ?
Tks and regards - Martha
I just had to jump in on this thread. I was given the task of using the photo of a customer's old truck and set it down in a field of caladiums. The original photo had the truck set in a park with oak trees and grass all around. My result was a labor of love and called for using the pen tool to delete all the "park" elements from between the slats of the truck, truck windows etc. I also had to rework the bumper to reflect caladiums instead of grass.
I leiu of working on yours... Here's mine, before and after.
It is well maintained Martha, shines like a new penny! The name on the side is "International" ???? Got no idea where it would have originally been made. Each time I've passed it I didn't have my digcam, this time though I told my husband to watch out for the red truck and PLEASE stop the car and let me take a photo at last....!
Two great results there Steve, well done. Swampy...you're not wrong that you put a lot of effort into your work and a grand result! Well done.

It's been months since I posted anything. Been busy with, well, summer.
I actually tried to keep track of my steps for this one:
1. Duplicated Background
2. Found the "actual" white and black points with Threshold, marked, then cancelled
3. In Curves, chose the marked white and black points with the eyedroppers along with selecting a good gray for the middle tone
4. Adjust levels to brighten it a tad, changed mode to Overlay, reduced to 80%
5. Duplicated layer and added a mask based off of the green channel selection and gaussian blurred slightly, changed mode to Screen
6. Duplicated the previous layers mask in the channels pallete
7. Duplicated the background layer and moved to top, added Lighting Effects filter and used the created channel mask as the Lighting Texture, then adjusted settings to my liking, changed mode to Screen, reduced to 80%
Some of the steps here create minute changes in the overall pic, but, this is how it all flowed.
Also, when I do this threshold technique at the beginning I change the settings inside Curves by double clicking the black eye-dropper and changing the RGB values to 20 each, and the same with the white eye-dropper and changing the RGB values to 240 each. I have found that I like the results from this.
Long winded today I guess!
