    How do you handle registration plates on cars? i find them really ugly most of the time but I don't have time to unscrew them all the time since i often switch location multiple times.

    How do you handle the plates? should i cover/remove them in photoshop?

    I want to hear all your ideas on how to handle ugly registration plates.

    double posting in different sections ??

    If you are asking about your own car it's simple. Add/attach magnets to the back of the plate so they will just stick to the car - like they do at car dealerships for test drives or put in your window (if allowed).

    For other people's cars,
    I use photoshop and either change them or white them out.

    If you need to use a flash then you need to either cover the plate or get off to the side since they are highly reflective.
    If no flash I just Photoshop them blank unless they are germane to the shot, something like "39 FORD".
