PHOTO EDITING - LATEST PIC!
« on: January 29, 2010, 08:34:31 PM »
I've been doing some photo editing of pics to determine details I want to put on or use on my 1965 GT Mustang that I'm currently having repainted and came up with this last version I thought was pretty cool.  I've used photos of GT350's Hertz black and gold versions to make the simplest changes of wheels, colors, etc. for my mods, and this one is no different.  But, with the angle and HOT STUFF details it turned out a little more "professional" appearing than most. 

I started with a GT350R version pic, and first changed the stripes to red.  Also changed the interior to red too.  It had hood pins, and chrome grill, so they were removed.  The 350R is the race version with no front bumper and oil cooler front valance, so that took a little more work to change those to stock appearing chrome bumper and valance.  I added the center fog lights too.  The wheels needed some enhancing with center caps and spokes, so they were added.  I have BFG tires white letter tires, so I added too.  I did some color enhancing here and there - it looked cool but needed something else.

I love the little HOT STUFF comic character and had made him in some other graphics I had around and thought it would look good with some big HOT STUFF lettering.  I generated that on my Corel Draw program, added the little devil, and voila!  I'm planning already of adding a little devil and word image similar to the ones here on my car in the rear by the tail lights.  Not too large, and easily removable if I don't like it.

My car will look like the image pretty much dead on.  I hope you enjoy it!   :)

That will be one "hot" looking Mustang once you get it back from the Paint shop.  Shoot some real pics to us once you get it finished.

Well my car is heading to the upholsterers this weekend so I should have it ready to romp the local streets whithin a month or so.  Anyway, I'm tinkering with photo-editors and did this latest composition.  It started out as a black and gold GT350HR racing version, with no bumper at a car show with people standing all around and racing wheels.  See smaller pic.  So, I changed the front end, added a bumper, changed the wheels, removed the people, changed background and added reflection.  I think it turned out pretty cool. 

Original pic I worked from...

When its finished it will look great. Good color scheme for the mustang. The color scheme makes the mustang look mean. Good luck with everything.

ULEAD PhotoImpact.  Its been around for a long time as I've had my program now for a good 10 years or more.  It also has a .gif maker and various other cool tools.
