somethin i'm tryin that's pretty cool

taking high-res pictures of people's cars, applying a little bit of graphic touch to them, adding text in cool fonts, or whatever else people want.. then i take it and have it blown up to a large size and placed in a frame. and then you have a poster-like picture of your car to hang on your wall.

here is the one i just completed for louie. we're taking this out right now to get it all finished. i' gonna get it to like an 18x24, or possibly even 24x36 size and i'll post pics of it in the frame later.

Linked Image

anybody who wants one of these i can make one just pay for a frame and like $3 for the enlargement and i'll come up with something cool using pics of your car. once i get this one completed i'll know how well it works and you can all see if you think it looks good.

w/ louie's pic i touched it up for sharpness and made his car black and white, leaving the background in color.

what i've done w/ these two isn't that complicated so i'm sure no one is that impressed. i just did these very quickly. i can do cooler stuff w/ the graphics. and some people might just want a good picture of their car un-altered.

I was thinking about doing that, but when I checked out prices to actually print them out, I would be broke, lol. Rather buy a mod.

not everyone has a camera capable of printing anything above a 8x10

I was wanting to do this as well. Sorta like the car posters where they have a big picture and then little pictures of the car along the bottom. If it turns out good I would be interested. thumbsup

the grass isn't altered the car was just put into alpha, so it stands out a lot more. louie's pic was taken w/ a 5.0 mp and i use a 3.2. i've done enlargements and they look perfect up to 18x24.
