    I wanted some good side shoots so that I can try to change the colors to see what the new color scheme of my RXP will be.

    That works OK it may take me a few days to figure out photoshop but I belive I can make it work.

    Do you have the Viper Red and RXX?

    It's very easy.

    Just select the area you want to change color and go to "edit", "fill" then select your color.
    That's the easy way but it also means you put patches of plain color on a picture, not good.

    A better way to do it would be to select the area(s) and go mess with the color balance in "image" "adjustments" "color balance"

    Then enhance the values of the color you wish to obtain, for example to turn green into orange you need to enhance the red, increase the yellow and reduce the green...

    You can also desaturate the selection in the same "image", "adjustment" "desaturate", you'll start from greyscale, sometimes it's easier.

    This method has the big advantage to change the colors but not the highlights, shadowns and lines that make the picture.

    Just fuck with it a little bit and soon you'll get it.

    Now to select the areas there are a couple ways.

    use the magic wand (shortcut W) to select them one by one, or select one area then go "select" "similar", it will highlight everything that's the same color with the same tolerance as you have it set up for the magic wand.

    But the best way IMO is the polygonal lasso tool, press "L" to activate it and just draw your own selection.

    11 do you have a shot of the Viper Red?

    And maybe the RXX?

    I am getting close to something to post.

    There is on thing in the program that makes pictures look like they are hand drawn and I may use color pencils to shade those in as well.
