( Pictures now hosted by Vales - admin)

use the SEARCH button (OOPS!!, i see that there are no more Truck Q&A to even use the search button, oh well)

MAKING BUMP.TIF'S

For Photoshop 7

First, take your file, convert it to RGB Color Mode, now go to FILTER>STYLIZE>FIND EDGES. Should look like this now;

Now, take the image and go to IMAGE>ADJUSTMENTS>CHANNEL MIXER. Now imput the values i have here to get the blue effect like the stock bumps.

After this, it should look like this;

Now that you have your color of the bump, it time for the Alpha Channel. The Alpha Channel of the bump.tif tell the game how much refelction is added to the car, black is no reflection, white is, well, is way to much.Create a new channel if you dont have one already. Go to IMAGE>ADJUSTMENTS>LEVELS. A diolog box will come up, go to the bottom scale and make the alpha a grey or dark grey, you dont want your truck to be a sheet of glass. Now, saving it, there is more involved than just pressing OK and it being done. When you go to save it as a .tif, make sure that you put the _BUMP after your trucks name and before the .tif, and save it. And TADA!, your done. Now my tut will be the one looked at my many n00bs to make tifs. Hope this works!!

Ifranview is a nice litle program but its really only an image viewer that has a few basic editing tools tacked on. To do any real image editing you will need to get photoshop or paintshop pro.

  You need only two tools. WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

I can't get all the pictures on Shroom's post to show up. I got the red and green but that is all I can view. Will somebody fill me in on the settings please.

This topic is only two years old.
Wait a minute or two.
Mine was doing it too but they loaded eventually.

I guess there is no use in waiting after the loading bar has filled and says done and all you get is red x's, now is there? I can get it to display the first two pictures of the settings (red,green) but the third one I need never showes. I have tried SEVERAL times and the best I can get it to show is a pic that says "A thumbnail could not be generated for this image" in red letters.

I am aware that the topic is 2 years old but it is better to search than make a new topic that you probably will get patronized and laughed at for starting. Would someone please just answer the question?

I copied all the images, reconverted them to jpegs and uploaded them to Vales, then edited shromm's post to show those images instead of the pics from a free picture hosting site. Hopefully you can see all 5 pics now.

Please note that the fourth one mentioning a thumbnail is exactly how the pictures is displayed to everyone. I guess shroom didn't upload that one to the freepichosting.com site properly. I tried copying the link and posting it in a new browser window, but that message is all that comes through.

UPDATE:

Consider this your lucky day. I looked through some archived pages I saved a few years ago, and that page was one I had saved, and it has the missing image intact.

I replaced it in Shroom's post.

You're welcome

Thanks BigDOGGe. If anyone can fill me in on the setting that is supposed to be in the fourth image I would appreciate it.

Look again. I found it.

Using the search function would not have helped. I tried it, and all I found were posts lamely saying "use the search", or posts that had a link leading back to this one (LMAO!)
