|Watermelon Pickup Truck|
"Watermelon Pickup," is a photograph manipulation of one of the images taken at the 2012 AutoRama. I opened the photograph first with Corel PaintShop Photo Pro X3.
There I applied the Lights to the image for the corner lighting effect. I added a couple of other effects that I kept simple. I saved the large file and opened with Corel PhotoPaint.
In PhotoPaint I applied the Local Equalization for high contrasts and the Tone Curve for color depth. I used the Tune Blur Soften on the image. Then applied KPT's Collection Lens Flare to augment the lighting I did in PSP.
I ended with a High contrast textured image with highlights of this Chevrolet Pickup. I saved another iteration of the large file. Re-opened with PSP and added the white ragged edging and a black frame. Saving that I resized for display at 180dpi.
Back in PhotoPaint I made the jagged edge black using the wand tool and the fill tool.
