Photoshop please...

20 posts in this topic

got a buddy that has just bought a new 09 450.. he doesnt get the chance to check out the web site due to work, but he would like to know what a YZ450 right of the floor with "BLACK" wheels would look like.. I told him i would ask some of the photoshop pros on the site to hook up with some pics photoshop pics.. i have tried to copy and past Josh Hill's/Broc Helper factory bike while it was sitting under the tent but i have had zero luck.. Would really like to see what the Factory Yamaha bike would loook like with black wheels, he just order the factory team graphics.. Can anyone hook me up??

If you get a chance, why don't you look up a pic yourself? Just a thought. :worthy:

Yeah, that's another thing you could do, lol. But, since I was bored and wanted some more practice I just did one. This is Broc Hepler's bike. Took a while to find a good pic though. And still pretty sloppy....:lol:

I read every post. Be advised: This is a technical forum first. There have been innumerable pictures of YZ450's with black wheels and blue (as well as every other color of plastics. This thread actually belongs in Pics & Video, not here.

MX4God,

Look into learning to select an area of the picture and replace one color with another, rather than drawing it in. You could just draw the black in with MS Paint, if that was all you were going to do.

What exactly do you mean replacing it with another color? And no, I was not using MS paint.

I know you weren't, but you could have.

Photoshop is one of the most extremely powerful, and poorly documented programs I know of. It's also off topic. You need to take some classes or do a lot of research/experimentation to learn much about it.

Basically, you need to select the area you want to recolor by one of several available tools, then choose replace color from whichever menu it's in in your version, choose the target color and a replacement and execute the command.

Other times it's simpler to get the wheels from another bike:

Ok, thanks for the replies. Yeah, this isn't really the thread to talk about it, but I guess I'll have to do some more research if I want to continue, because I suck!
