69 Peterbilt Photoshop Transformation

This is a post about how I transform some of my photos using Photoshop CS3. The subject in this post is my AMT Peterbilt 359 "California Hauler". It has been the subject of other post as well.

The first picture was taken with a white sheet as the background:

The image itself was sharpened in Photoshop, then the background was removed by a combination of cut /paste and flood fill of a solid color:

This picture was then softened using the "unsharpen mask", then artistically rendered using the poster edge and ink outline features. The result of all this changes the picture from a photo into a work of art. If only I could do this by hand -----

Of course, I already think this Pete is a work of art ----

Always Looking For Trucks - Leave Comments

I am always searching for new truck models, and photos or illustrations of old trucks. If you have a site to share about trucks, or truck modeling, please include it in your comments. I will do my best to add the link to this page.

Tell me what you think. I'm having fun doing this..................
