  • Ann Turner: Photoshop Genius

    When you get your April 2015 Turning Wheels, look carefully at the inside rear cover color photo.

    I was lucky enough to score a "Studebaker only" photograph of my 1964 Daytona convertible in front of The South Bend Chocolate Company's Chocolate Cafe on downtown Indianapolis' Monument Circle, the center of Indianapolis.

    Unfortunately, I couldn't uproot and dispense with the prominent, orange, ugly NO PARKING sign in front of the business:



    "No problem" for Turning Wheels Editor Ann Turner, the PM (Photoshop Master). Check out the reproduction inside the rear cover of the April 2015 Turning Wheels to see what I mean.

    Superb job, Ann; thanks so much... BP

      Thanks, Mark; it's amazing what 20 feet between the lens and the subject can do, isn't it? It is a fun driver and very dependable for parades with its Phil Harris-modified MoPar High Capacity fuel pump bolting right up to the stock location. Even with Power Steering incubating the fuel pump, no vapor lock.

      It has transported World War II Veterans in the Indianapolis Honor Flight Unit in the Indianapolis Veterans Day parades for the last three years.

      Most recently, The 2014 Parade; the only Studebaker in it:



      When one of the local TV stations covered the parade for the evening news, there were quite a few seconds of the car and occupants shown in the actual parade, in motion all by ourselves, with the units in front of us and in back of us not visible. Cool. BP

        Well...hope you don't mind if I (for this picture) Dub this as the WHITE CHOCOLATE convertible.



        Barring any unusual delay, my Turning Wheels should come today...another reason for anticipation.

            Yep, the very FIRST thing that Art would have done is Photoshop OUT that ugly sign, he hated things growing out of Cars!
            May he rest in Peace.

                  Some years ago, when I bought my first flatbed scanner, a Hewlett Packard, it came with a disc that included a photoshop software.
                  My first foray was to delete two people who were looking at the windshield placard on my '51 at a local show. They were standing between the tree and passenger front fender.



                  My next attempt was to present the '63 Cruiser as a Town Car. Then Len Shepherd re-posted it, adding the chauffeur.



                  Unfortunately, that free software could not be transferred to a newer computer. I guess you pay dearly for it now.

                      Right, Rich. As you see, I was not supposed to park there, even for a moment.

                      Indianapolis' Monument Circle is patrolled by policemen making continuous laps, running people off parking around the perimeter, as I did. Sadly, since that is a fixed sign, I had to park and jump out and take the photo quickly, with no time to spare before being told to, "move along."

                      Thank goodness for Photoshop. BP

                            That's a very nice job for having used Paint. Not having Photoshop I have used Paint to eliminate items from pictures, but not as neatly as your touchup.

                              Actually, the FIRST thing Art would have done, would be to ask me to Photoshop OUT that sign.
