can someone help and photoshop for me?

Here is a side view of my jeep. Can you boat side it (the boat sides black),


Can you also keep the chain steps, remove the stinger, add 35" tires with black steelies, and AEV high line rear fender?

Picture of what boat sides are...

Photoshop isnt that easy. All of what you want would have to be drawn out by hand. Unless you have shots of the parts you want take from the same angle as the Jeep, yo cant just cut and paste this stuff. Sure it can be done, but you ae talking about a full day's worth of work to make it look half decent.

It'll never get done if you don't stop typing. So less typee, more photo-shopee...

It makes me laugh when people think photoshop is some magic program that does all this. It is just software that allows someone to layer images and manipulate colors and textures. This is a full day's job, about $1000 worth. Example, look at the tires and wheels you posted. See how the sun is behind the jeep, making the lends flares across the image? Do you see those flars in your jeep shot? Nope. That means a few hours of of work just to make the tire's lighting match the lighting in your jeep and remove the glare from the lens flares.

To see how easy it is, just go download the GIMP: GIMP - Downloads that is free photo manipulation software that can do almost everything photoshop can do.

I am not saying it can not be done, just that what you are asking for is a heck of a lot of work. People who are skilled at this generally get paid for it. Sorry, just rubs a raw nerve with me. I am a photographer and for some reason, people seem to think we work for free. Here are a couple of my pieces that are magazine covers that required heavy manipulation. This can be a day or two in work to do and do right. Would you ask a mechanic to just bolt all this stuff on, without charging you labor, to see if you like the way your Jeep looked?

97flexy, its not about the money, it is about recognizing that there is a hell of a lot more to "just photoshop it". I am not sure what you do for a living, but how often are you asked to do what you do for free? We get asked hundreds of times a week for free photoshoots, photo shop work, etc. Most people think we should do it for the priveledge of adding them to our portfolios.

How many mortgage companies will gladly let your skip your payment for the honor of saying they lent you money? How many grocery stores would jump at the chance to give you free groceries because the manager drives a jeep? For some reason photographers and graphic artists are supposed to be honored that someone would want us to work for free. Just because we drive the same kind of car, both ride Harleys or someother reason. I was asked if I would do the photography for my class reunion recently. For free of course. I said sure, should I set up next to my friend the Dr who will be doing free physicals?

Wow. Arguing a moot point to its mootest point...

Good luck in the photo-shop request. Obviously it's so painstakingly laborious it must be pointed out that breaking in to Fort Knox is easier.

I think it was the OP's attitude that prompted the response. Photoshop is very time consuming and what the OP wanted is not a simple thing. So, to act put out that no one wanted to immediately spend their valuable time, I'm sure is a little annoying to those who have Photoshop skills. Perhaps a different approach would have netted a different results.

I never asked a professional to help me out just someone who had the time and wanted to do a little project to help me out. But to answer your question, If someone asked me to help them build there jeep/4x4, yes in my free time I would help them out, actually I'm helping build a k5 right now in my free time. I guess some of us are just willing to help other out while others figure if your not getting paid its not worth being nice.

Down and dirty - 10 minute job. Did not take the time to fix perspective or angles. I guessed at tire size based on the shot next to the Cherokee.

Since not all of the angles are the same, the fender doesnt quite line up right, not sure of the size wheel and tires you had, so I h ave no idea if these are right, too small to big, etc. The front looks about right. The boat sides were pretty simple and straight forward. To to the fenders and wheels exact would take more time that I have to spend on it right now.
