Photoshop requests?
 
Hello. Has anyone volunteered to do photoshop requests for forum members? I know that there are a couple of guys on Jeepforum doing this and they pretty much have it covered over there. Is there someone here doing requests? If not, let this be the start of a photoshop request thread...

Post a pic of your Jeep along with what you would like to see done to it, i.e. blacked out rims, different color, etc.

Guideline: The results that I can get for you depend largely on the quality of the pic you post: cell phone pics are pretty much worthless. If the Jeep takes up most of the frame (that is, it is not a dot in the picture) and the photo is clear it will enable better results.

Example: Willys MB transformation of a Wrangler TJ

I await your request. :whistling:

Now that is a pretty cool picture.

Thanks. I also made a version in (close to) olive drab:

Would like to see it with tinted windows please. also maybe a set of Cepek DC-2 wheels if thats not too much trouble. thanks in advance.

Coffeeman 03-06-2012 06:44 PM

TJe0454, here you go:



I hope I understood you right about the hood. If not it is an easy fix to do the entire hood in red.

I thought I would try one more thing:

If you do this transformation please send pics, I would love to see the final product. I would definitely do the grille in red.

Let me know if there is anything else I can do for you.

TJe0454 03-06-2012 06:53 PM

you do great work! ill post up pics if i end up doing it. and i agree, the grill would look good in red for contrast

Coffeeman 03-06-2012 07:45 PM

YJ95Wrangler, here is your Jeep with tinted windows! I have a white Jeep with tinted windows myself. I can do the rims, but it would work a lot better if I had a pic taken perpendicular to the side of the Jeep as I could not find a picture of the rims online at a close-enough angle to look right when placed in the picture. If you send me a pic taken at a right angle to the side of the Jeep I can get it to you with your rims.

A side note for fellow Photoshopers, this picture is good example of something to watch for that I have noticed about window tinting: You are actually tinting 5 windows in this picture, though it may first seem like 2. The reason for this is that since you can see the back and passenger-side windows through the driver-side windows, there would be a double layer of tint visible to the eye in real life. In this pic I selected the back window and the passenger-side windows for a second layer of tint. I think it is more realistic. I thought that might be good food for thought for fellow Photoshop people since a Jeep is really just a glass box with thick framing around each pane.

yj95wrangler 03-06-2012 08:44 PM

You sir are absolutely amazing!!!! Thank you so much. ill get a different angle tomorrow I didnt even think about having the pic photoshopped when i took it or i would have got squared away. Thanks again, God Bless.

Hey guys. I just found this thread and to be honest I don't go on this forums as much as I do some of the others but I have my degree in Digital Art and Design and have worked in the creative industry for a bit. I have about 10 years of Photoshop experience and worked for a advertising agency, creating photorealistic renderings. Please don't hesitate to contact me

FreezerJeep 03-06-2012 09:41 PM

I got one. I have had photoshop for a few months and have wondered how you do this that you keep the reflections (in the windows for te tint) and the right glare when you change paint colors

Thanks

Bryce

Coffeeman 03-06-2012 10:29 PM

IP0VV3R, here's your newly painted orange Jeep with black fenders and top. Enjoy :)

Thanks:). That looks awesome. Great job

Coffeeman 03-06-2012 10:42 PM

Bryce, I think you were actually responding to the offer for information from the man with the professional experience who posted on the thread, but were referring to my pics so I will answer as far as how I maintain the gloss of paint and glass.

In the pics you see above I started by selecting which parts of the vehicle I wanted to alter the color of and then adjusting the hue, saturation, and lightness/darkness of the selection. The key to maintaining the natural reflectiveness of materials in doing so is selecting the option to "colorize". There are other ways of changing the color and of maintaining the naturalness of the photo, just depends on what the objective is. For what I have described here, see Image, Adjustments, Hue/Saturation. Beyond that, in these pics there is some alteration of color curves, texturizing where matte was requested, blending where pixel bleed has occured, etc. Happy photoshopping.

-Coffeeman :D

Coffeeman.. you are simply amazing. I'd like to be able to see an entire gallery of your work. I'm rebuilding my YJ and have been hard pressed to find a collection of pictures involving custom paint. I've never seen art like this.

First i would select the area I would like to fill with the new paint. I would fill the area on a new layer, above the original image. I would then use the same selection that I just filled, and use that deleted area to adjust the contrast of the original area of the jeep. Then I would go back and forth playing the blending options and the brightness/contrast to get a realistic and clean relationship between the two layers. I would finalize everything by dodging/burning the shadows and reflections, and then dong Select> border " 2 px" and applying a gausian blur to ease the super clean edge the pen tool leaves after filing it.


Let me know if you have any other questions there are 1001 ways to do something. I know most of them but usually tend to a few different approaches depending on the photo and what has to be done.

Hey, could someone possibly change my Wrangler picture? I want to see what the Jeep would look like if I got black wheels and a black grill...

put the pic on here you want to use... and whats a topper?

s3nt3nc3d 03-07-2012 01:50 AM

You guys do nice work! I like to play around in Paint Shop Pro (can't stand Photoshop...plus it's too expensive when I'm putting forth an effort into keeping this computer somewhat legal...lol)...but I'm not quite that good!

Incubus1013 03-07-2012 02:19 AM

Thanks. The possibilities are endless. Photoshop is primarily used for photo correction and manipulation but it can be used to create Gif animations, digital painting, and even complete websites. I would say I'm 100% proficient in adobe illustrator and even though I've been using photoshop for about 10 years there are areas that i haven't explored. Some reasons are because some features are obsolete and other reason are just because I've never had a reason to. Some ppl use paint pro or gimp but i like photoshop over those anyway but the end result is really what matters. o each their own.
