hustler, your graphics skills are nothing short of sensational! I really look forward to your artistic creations. Some (like this one) have me laughing my head off, and others I think you should send to some of the boat builders as suggestions for future products. Thank you! Please keep them coming!

hustler,

I have an i-mac w i-photo. Haven't gotten into it much yet. Can I do the things you do on TF w I-photo?

You probably have a PC and don't know and I prolly can't anyway. The Apple girl that sold me the i-mac said I could probably do all I wanted w i-photo. But I don't think she ever thought I'd be want'in to do the tricks you've been up to on TF. What do you think?

You talking about Marin Faure? Oops! Sorry, he's a published author. I'm sure he doesn't mind a bit of name recognition. There, I just him a plug!

Easy there, Cees! Marin has never tried to hide his name. And neither has Eric. Let's keep the thread going in a positive direction! It has been a ball up to this point. A "Marin Roast" if you will!!!

All the Photo-Shop stuff I do has either been on an old 2.4 Gig PC with "Photoshop Elements" (79 bucks at vendors, last time I checked) or more recently with Photo-Shop CS on an old Mac Powerbook G4. I also have Corel Painter and Adobe Illustrator, but rarely use it for TF creations. I haven't tried I-Photo yet.

Later versions of Photo-Shop probably have button push operations for many of the changes I do but new programs are big bucks. For all I know, there may be easier ways to do these things on the software I have now, but the programs are so large that half the fricken work is learning and practicing with the software. It's still very labor intensive.

If you want to start experimenting with this, I suggest going with PhotoShop Elements. With few exceptions, that program has enough features to allow you to do almost any mod you've seen from me on TF, but doing searches to put together parts like a fly-bridge off one photo, a canvas setup off another and a tuna tower off another still require a lot of eye and hand work with lighting and blending. Then there are the pieces you simply must make from scratch if it is a paid, detailed photo enhancement for a project, etc..

Lastly, there is the amount of knowledge you have about the subject you are working with. If it is boats, you know darned well that Bayliner windows don't go well on a Willard. Using "believable" resources for a photo mod comes from feeling and sensing how forms can work with (or against) one another, depending on what you want to create. When I read the shares here on the forum about style, and then see the photos you include to indicate the
feeling" of that form, it becomes obvious that many of you have all the knowledge needed to produce real designs, not the ridiculous hodgepodge that I you see me use for entertainment value here on TF.

I began this work to clarify old photographs of antique machinery that were part of my hobby. Now, I make a few side dollars working for design groups to demonstrate photographically, what a finished product would look like. Anyone could do it with enough practice with a decent software, but if you can blend your knowledge (collective logic and reason) with your sensing ability (emotion) and your spirit (potential and possibility), then you must be quite a resourceful person, and that resourcefulness will show-up in your creations, whatever they may be.

Thanks so much hustler.

One thing I'd really like to do is darken a sky background and keeping all else as photographed. With my apple "tools" I can change;

Exposure
Saturation
Tint
Sharpness

and a few others but everything happens to the whole picture. If I want ideal skin tones all else must follow the skin tone adjustments.

Walt .... Yup I'm sure your'e better at this than I. I haven't really used i-photo yet. So your'e ahead of me.

Marin still has two posts right?

Thanks Nick, Eric, David and everyone for the positive comments, and thanks to Marin for not taking me seriously (I mean, how could you). Thank God you all have a good sense of humor.
