    • Slingshot Photo Edit Project Display

      Members, I know we have some members that want to display their creative photos. I want to provide a place for you to show off your creations. Anything Goes! Use multiple photos, edit, add scenes from other photos. Anything is legal less copyright material. Here is your chance to explore your mind for things that are screaming to escape. I am entering my first Photo Edit project to start us off. I am using Carol Highsmith's photo base to create my Snazzy as a part of the photo. This is a layering photos, where I took my photo and placed it on top of Carols photo and positioned Snazzy to the place I liked. Now as part of the editing I needed to erase the background from my photo of Snazzy. Most of the good Photo Shops will have Tools to make this an easy task. Let's have fun and place our prized Slingshots in creative settings for all to view. Carol Highsmith has donated her beautiful photos to the Arichives. She is a great photographer.

      Here is my tutorial to show how to PhotoShop your Slingshot into a background of choice.







      Snazzy on Location!

      Here is the photo I was looking to create. Only problem, the photo I found was only 537 X 350 Pixel, too small and lost a little detail. Next time I would take a High Resolution 3/4 front passenger side view to have the best photo project results. This demonstration is just to show what you can do. I wanted the Slingshot by the Gas Tanks.





      Now I could add a third layer to the photo with me standing there at the back for gasing up. There is work involved with creating the look you want.

    • Folks, I use Corel Paintshop Pro 6 for my edit projects. I do use other software Like Gimp , Microsoft Paint and Google App, DeviantArt Muro to create my media Material. I also using Snipping Tool, part of your accessories for Microsoft Programs. It sometimes takes several different software to accomplish the desired results. That may be due to my lack of skills with each of the elements I use.

      I am eager to see some of our members creations! I can not be the only member that likes to create Photo Shop material.

    • New Members, please join our Website and enter your creations. I know I am not the only person that loves to Photo Shop. It is fun and the results are unlimited. Use your Slingshot as part of the Edit along with yourselves if it works! There are no limits except copy right infringement. Be careful there.
    • what about simple touch up programs such as Snapseed or Prisma? Are we looking to chop in a slingshot in to locations or use filters to just make the Sling look better...so on and so on?

      You are the editor, you make your best presentation with whatever works for you. This is totally open for all to reach with their limits to show the members what can be accomplished. Go for it!! I want to see results, then if questions come up, please let folks know how you did it if they ask! We have a chance to bring some interesting material I am sure!

    • @mytoy Now here is where the fun escalates into unlimited fun!

      Come on Boys, Snazzy will lead the way!!



      Look at Gail, smiling, her hero is giving her an adventure. Folks, get some photos and when my video comes out soon, get into the fun! Get photos of all positions, well, pg rated, let's don't get all your positions. In the Slingshot and around the Slingshot and the Slingshot itself.
    • Members, notice, you are all subject to photo edit. I am going through the photos and looking for good subjects to create special photos. Here is my first feature of an unsuspecting member. I found this photo and it would fit well in the Gas Station background. Father and son, a special moment to put our members in a spot light with a personal touch. I hope this is taken well with good intentions.
      @airoutlaw I consider you a friend and hope you do not object. It is so good to see a father and son enjoying time together.

      Nice touch! Thank you, @samowens44!
      To be honest... if we had been in that location, we would have been discussing that project car in the back. Now I will have to try my hand at some more photo shopping.
      Let me stop everything and Work on Your Problem!
    • Ok, the time has arrived. I have finished the Tutorial on How to Photo Shop your Slingshot into a background of your choice. I give you some help with the tools you will need to get started. I suggest Corel in that is is easy and has most all the key tools you will need to create a project. I am sure the program is under $100. There is a free program call Gimp, but I find it is much harder to use and does not lean well to beginning your learning curve. You will find as you get into this, you will use several programs, each has the special application you need. The Snipping Tool and Microsoft Paint are helpful for saving and resizing photos. Create a folder in pictures folder that you can store all your project work. You want it all in one place to pull from. I will be standing by to help anyone that would like help with a part of the project. Good Luck and have fun! I hope to see some of your projects soon.
