    Browns not the easiest option.. your best off starting with somebody elses car and going from there, have a look through the post pics of your ride thread.

    I still don't know how you can use paint to change the hue? somebody please explain that for me.

    haha gungazza there is 3 or more way's to do it there is the

    HARD -sanding down your car :wax: and then imagining how you wanted it then trying to explain to your freinds your thoughts lol

    MEDIUM- in microsoft paint cutting and pasting bits of the colour ....still not getting the colour right and hard to keep in the lines

    Easy - medium difficulty photoshop takes time i think .... i cant be bothered learning it

    Very easy :D Ask ur mates who are cluey to do it for you :yeah:

    thanks people for wat you have done so far

    You don't need photoshop to do colour changes and basic cut/paste layer jobs.

    I use Microsoft Picture it, for a long time I was using the 95 version doing colour changes in a matter of minutes that a few of my mates that are PS keen said were pretty good. I've now upgraded to Picture It 200* something, and its exactly the same, for only 40 dollars or so its well worth it. For Example

    Step 1 Open Picture - Higher the res the better
    [​IMG]

    Step 2 Trace your outline, be sure to remove any things that aren't getting changed
    [​IMG]

    Step Three: Well, thats just the final part of step 2: Removing door handles, aerials etc, glass, wipers if you didn't go around them first go.
    [​IMG]

    Step Four: Change Colour: Use the sliders on the left, along with your Saturation, later change the brightness/contrast to suit.
    [​IMG]

    Done, That was a 5 minute job. Can take more time to do the outlines exact.

    You just give me some examples and I'll match it as best I can.

    Metallics are easy, because your car is metallicish to begin with. I can pretty much only do whats already there.
