What do you all say about having a little chopping contest? If you are Let me get it started if that is alright! This for anyone that wants to try there hand at chopping! I will post a pic today and we have one week to chop it and post your chop in this thread. Once you post your chop you cant repost it again! And make any more changes. All chops have to be done and posted by Sunday by Midnight EST. Then on on Monday we can vote for the one that we think is the best chop (anyone can vote even if they didnt enter a chop). What do you think??? If your are interested here is a car we can start with. Then the winner of the comp can pic the next car pic!

I am very sorry mustang123 but what I ment was that all of us have to use the car I posted to chop this week. Then the one that gets the most votes next monday will pic the next car we have to chop! Oh yea you can only post you pic one time, for the week!! so make sure you are finished with it before you post it in this thread because you can't change it once you have posted your chop. The reason is because once you see someones chop you might be temped to change your chop to match his or try and make yours better then his. I hope I made myself clear!!! Remember it is just for fun and to learn how to use Photoshop or what other program you might have!


HAVE FUN CHOPPING!!!! :D May the best chopper win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

yes it is a stupid question :D anyway, you just go to your saved psd and then save it as a jpeg in the "save as" dialog box.

That isnt a stupided question! This is for Photoshop: you need to go to file/ then go to save for the web/ then a window will come up and you will see your pic on it: now to the right side of it you will see two little white windows one on top of the other/ the top one is for changing it to jpg/ there is another little window that has written next to it Quality: with that you can set your size of your file of you pic it is in kbps ( the larger it is the slower it will load)/ now as you adjust the slide bar you can see the size change under your pic in the bar. I usually try and keep my pic around 90 to 120k.

This is the best way of condensing you file of your pic so people that have dialup can load them easier with out loosing the quality of yor pic. Try and not go below 30 in your Quality window.

Damn, I incorrectly over-wrote the WIP of this chop with a very low-res JPEG.

You get the flavour, I'll see if I get some coffee-break time tomorrow :(

judging from Carlovers chop, maybe i don't need a paint handiacp :p
ok here's mine, i have certain special tequniques for getting the wheels this good in paint ;) some of the bodywork is blotchy but tat would take hours to fix in paint, anyway here is my chop, hope you like it.

and also, a damn eliptical marque tool would SERIUOSLY help in paint!!!!!!! :)

P.S.should we be allowed to vote for our own?

Here is what I was trying first time.

I'm going to add some "WRC" elements for a second posting - are we allowed multiple entries ??

Your not really allowed to post the second time. I stated it at the beginnng that you need to make sure that you were finished before you posted it. I think that is only fare. I have seen on other sites where they did allow it and people would keep changing there chops during the week after they seen what others had done with theres.

If this catches on you will have another week to do better on you next chop!

Aww, boo sucks !!

OK, the first posting was a waste of time because I only realised I'd screwed up the jpeg when I came to post ( 40Kb !! )

Is my second one going to be OK then ??

Shame I can't post my third as I've added the wing, bonnet vents and lights I wanted :(

I agree you can't let multiple posts bo the norm as all that happens is people see others ideas and improve their own submissions. Don't rules suck :(


Sod it !! I'll ask for forgiveness. Here's my final entry. Do what you may :) I did add colour with the wing which wasn't my original plan. Use whichever one you deem fit !! :)

Again, I miss the joke, Doza ?

JPEG is the best format for sharing images as they have the better compression.
The format was defined by the Joint Photographic Experts Group.

Sadly I remember them being formed to stop the squabbles between ITU, ISO and many other 'interested parties' :( '82, seems a lifetime ago :(

.jpg is the PC's best attempt to map the name coz it's brain-dead with fixed 3 letter extensions.

Batmobile Turbo seemed to be able to. I didn't mean any offence, it just doesn't look too good.I think we can all agree on that.

Matra et Alpine!! Yes your second one will count but sorry the third wont! The reason is the second one you didnt really do any chopping changes to the car all you did was redo the file size. It is great to see all the ones that are turning in some chops. I have see some pretty good ones so far and have been amazed to see how good some of the chops done by paint have turned out.

Yeah, you missed the joke completely, I believe he was referencing the Pixelated(?) quality of your (1st) pic with the quality of the old Atari 2600 gaming system of 20 something yrs ago. Funny as hell IMHO. :p

Eventhough we're only allowed to post once I wanna enter, I don't think I'll have more time before sunday to finish it so this'll have to do for now... if I do get more time I'll see what I can do (color, and some other additions)

I made the widebody and hoodextentions by hand so the reflecttions may be a bit off ;)

Right-o.
Like Atari, minus the fun of games focused on gameplay and not cinematics.
