Could use some help with Photoshop.

I've been trying to work with Photoshop for several years now and it's not as easy as it seems watching the instructions on YouTube. If anyone knows where I can get some DVDs or Tapes so that I can watch on TV, I really would appreciate it. All I can find is DVD-ROM to watch on the computer and it's not helping at all. I have learned a little, but not as much as I like to.

When vmaxman was here, he helped out a lot and he's really good. At any rate, Beefy sent me an e-mail and it had a picture of a beautiful blue Chevrolet pickup and I decided to play with a little bit.







Any help would be appreciated.

Looks like your on the right track. The best thing to do is just play around and experiment with it. The color pallet is the best color toning tool in the box.

I'm using the cheap version (Photoshop 3.0) to do my work with. I have 5.0 and CS2, but to me it's easier using the one that I paid $60 for about six years ago. 5.0 and CS2 was expensive but you can't make very many mistakes on those two are you'll have to start over. At least that's how mine works.

As long as I can select from these colors (doesn't make any difference what the object is) I can change the colors pretty easily.



Here's a red truck (that belongs to Beefy) that I started from. You'll see the different colors that could change it to or add something to it.

He didn't like this one at all. I wonder why?

Now if I take a car or whatever with this color, I can't do anything with it but screw it up. It's weird, I love to read manuals when it comes to repairing a car or truck or doing body work. But, this is totally different for me (actually, confusing as hell reading them)



Here's another one I did using fire.



The instructions on YouTube help out a lot, but they can be confusing to.

Hello,

Here's a fun way to learn some photoshop basics.

http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...3&feature=plcp

Also, upgrade your photoshop if you can, newer versions have lots of ways to do things that you couldn't do in earlier versions.

Here are a few links to photoshop automotive chop type tutorials:

Here's a guy that did some work for Kevin Byrd's LS3 on the show check out his gallery for inspiration:

Wow, I just noticed how old this post was . . . oh well maybe the info will still be helpful.

Enjoy!

Hey DW, what are you trying to do with the old truck? Looks like colour change is working out good. Let me know, if email doesn't work here, send it to my work. Not sure if my wife deleted you or sent your name to "SPAM". She might. Send it to my work and I can send it home etc etc.

Pixel...it was the other PS post that's old. This one's perty new.
