  • threshold or something else

    I need some help with a project:

    I have a picture like this one: Nissa Juke and i want to look like one of others pictures that i've upload here.

    I want to make it all black and put on a white background. I want to see the details like: tires, lights, windshield etc. This will be a diagram/scheme for every car, not for a specific one.

    I've try with threshold but i loose allot of details or i'm doing something wrong.

    Hope u can understand and sorry for my english. Thanks!

    These artistic renderings aren't really my thing, I'm sure others will do better, but here's some glowing edges w/ a touch of sumi-e:

          I also need an explanation of how you have made changes. The nissan Juke picture is just a demo, not my picture.

            Of course you lose some detail. These things are just doing math under the hood. Clever developers try to align this math with the desires of as many people as possible within a certain delta. You are going to have to make a call on what point is good enough for the initial round before proceeding to manual cleanup. To get perfect behavior, you would probably have to program it yourself. Good luck with Adobe's APIs.

            If it was me, I would probably get annoyed with the results and end up redrawing it from scratch using whatever rough brush tip or custom tip approximated the texture with the least work.

              perspective and color question re composite
              by kathleen
              would sure appreciate some thoughts on how to make the old car look like it belongs there. not sure about color, and i think it needs the ps equiv of cutting the steering wheel to the left, and nudge the backend in some. what do you think? something looks wrong, don't know just what.

              Hi all,

              Always wondered what my car would look like with the late model Kouki Type X rear lights.

              Can you please do 2 edits, one leaving the RPS13 center...

              Vanity Plates
              by Doug Nelson
              I'm picking up my new (to me) car tomorrow. Some, especially my fellow Americans, might find it hard to believe that its been almost 15 years since I last owned a car. Anyway, I briefly toyed with the idea of getting personalized license plates (vanity plates) that would be relevant to RP and my career...
