    You need to do a neater trimming job. The edge of the cut is jaggy and distracting.

    The point of that technique is to have the door transparent.

    Not for it to look like someone cut a chunk out of the door with a hack saw.

    Right. You have the Idea...


    The Technique:

    Using a tripod...Take a picture with the door/hood open. Then take a separate picture with the door/hood closed. In photoshop, open both pictures on one work space, with the open hood/door on top.

    Using a soft edged eraser, erase the top layer. Excluding the motor, seat...etc.

    Thats how i do them.

    This is a picture i did of my buddy jason on an Automotive forum TampaRacing.com

    And one with a seat form the same shoot.

    END/ thread jack.

    I could not find a easy way to " feather " the edge. I was using paint.net for lack of having photoshop. :( I have to work on my mad skills! lol
