Unhappy N00B needs help

Morning all (well, if you're in the UK anyway)

I'll keep it short. The attached photo is not an original scan (unless you want to look at it), its merely resized to suit the site and upload limit. As you can see, it needs a little 'work', lol.

Normally, I wouldn't ask on here before breaking out the wacom and attacking the image myself, but I know when I'm out of my depth and know when to ask for help and that time is now!.

I'm utterly lost as to where to start on the image as IMO its the worst case of double exposure I've ever seen.

Any ideas are greatly appreciated and accepted. Please note however that I don't expect people to do the work for me (I'd never learn anything and I find it rude to expect that).

Any ideas??

Thanks in advance
Andy

p.s. In hind sight, I provided a link to the original on image shack.

Here's a quickie. Duplicated it, moved the car above on the top layer to line up with the car below on the bottom layer, cropped it and erased the bottom right corner of the top layer to suit.

Many thanks Ziaphra,

Kind of kicking myself at the minute. I thought it would have been a complicated one....guess not, hehe.

Regards
Andy

Re: N00B needs help

Hi all,

I've attempted to replicate Ziaphra's technique on fixing the pic to see how it worked and have attached an image accordingly. Obviously levels etc haven't been sorted yet, but please let me know what you think.

Thanks in advance
Andy
