Need photoshop help please
 
If someone could help me please.
Here is a link to a ford pickup, i am visual, and would like it photoshopped in colours to help me decide.

1978 ford f-250 4x4 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

The top on it should be a deep cherry red, down to the black line that runs down the side of the truck.
The bottom half I would like to see in black, dark grey, silver, and dark blue to help me decide.

Thanks if anyone can help.
ps. my computer skills suck, or i would do it myself.

BC, if you're visual you're right brained and file a lot of things visually. I'm not that good with Photoshop but don't think you really need it.
Try this; look at the truck and paint in the cherry red with your mind. Now imagine the bottom in the variations you're interested in. You should be able to get a good image in your head that will guide your choice. If not go to a paint store and grab color swatches in those colors.

You really can't go wrong since most 33 year old Fords are rust brown.:idea:

Sometimes I wish I had Photoshop.
This is one of those times :)

I have looked for a long time for a fairly rust free one, so i know what you mean.
I am going to overhaul the entire truck, and that includes the body and paint.
Rebuild the diffs, transfer case, engine, tranny, brakes, all new hoses, cab mounts, etc.
It should be like new once done.
Plus put new wheels and tires on it that look good.

I just suck at visualizing, so like to see stuff, to know if i like it is all.
It would be bad to paint it, and then decide i do not like the paint once its done....lol

:cheers2:

The shape means less than color compatibility. I'd like the cherry with a gun metal grey but that's me.

Your request reminded me of 4chan where you can often get almost anything done in Photoshop. If you know it, try it. If not don't go near that place.

One other thought. Having restored a Dodge Tradesman I know that there will be rust you can't reach. In the Tradesman's case the attachments between body & frame rusted away.

blucher,

The cab and box will be coming off the frame, and the frame sand blasted and powder coated, and all new mounts.
Hope to get most of the rust at least.

If you can do that you're set.
