Anyone know/have Photoshop?

PostPost by: pharriso » Tue Sep 09, 2014 11:19 pm

I have a professional set of photo's of my car before I purchased it.

One of the files is partially corrupt:

Does anyone have Photoshop & have the ability to correct the picture?

Any help much appreciated

p.s. linked picture is now as corrected by Brian. :D

I opened it with photoshop and it got worse from there. This is a saved copy of how it loads to PS.

Different, but I'm sure it's not what you had in mind. :shock:

It only had that easily removed line when viewed using the link provided.

I actually find it quite useful - to let me know that I left the indicators on, since the light in the speedo is so small & the flasher is inaudible to my (racing damaged) ears... :roll:

No creativity involved. That's how it opened and I couldn't do anything with it. Did Brian's fix come out of Photoshop?

As for removing the indicator... If it were only that easy to do in fiberglass as it is in Photoshop there might be fewer of them. :wink:

Hi Phil,
All those helpful guys forgot to flip the photo to make it RHD :shock: I will sort that for you tomorrow.
And can you change those cheap repeaters for the proper ones please?

Colour looks good, proper Sprint livery in that shade of green.
Kindest regards
