Say, that Aveo you're chopping is too high up!


Here's how to lower it!

(Please note that many people use different methods in order to achieve the same goals. This is one way how to do it. Others may differ.

Using the polygon lasso, select everything below the wheel wells like so:


Once selected, Copy (Ctrl-C) and Paste (Ctrl-V) that section. It will make a new layer, which will be just wheels (and ground, if you pic has a background).


Then use the move tool (the little arrow), and move the wheels up into the wheel well, don't worry that it isn't pretty at this point.


Using the zoom tool, zoom in so you are up close to the wheel.


Using the eraser, remove all the excess blackness around the wheel, revealing the proper wheel well below.


Repeat for the other wheel. You might also have to trim some excess from the bottom of the car itself. It depends on the original pic you use.


Then, using the smudge tool, stretch the blackness of the wheel wells.


Do the front and the back, and VOILA! You're done.

I really need to brush up my skills in Photoshop. I haven't really used it in a long time. I used to be pretty good at making signatures, I should make one for myself for this site but I don't know what to incorporate into it.

Why aren't the pics there?

Because this thread is 8 months old, and we can't keep everything here waiting for you to notice.

Is there any way I can see them? I kust downloaded a photo editor that is pretty much like p.h.

Re: Rex's Tutorial #2: Car Lowering

Yes. Easy way:

Get a DeLorean.
Hit 88 miles per hour (make sure the flux capacitor is functioning)

Go back in time to 8 months ago.

Re: Rex's Tutorial #2: Car Lowering

Great tutorial, Until now I would have lowered each wheel separately, but you've saved me precious time! Thanks.
