Mostly going for the concept here, I know it's kind of a crappy image (please, somebody redo it properly who knows how to work Photoshop ;-) Basically shows my opinion of that stupid show that everyone seems to think is a completely new concept. ("If you'd just get that fourth wall installed...") Yeah, do whatever you want with it as far as I care.

That's not what we do here. Mostly, we help people to make their 'chops better. Sometimes we make rude noises. On Friday we have a barbeque. For this image, try to make the "'s" look the same as the other "american idol" script. Maybe offset the "got talent" lower so the the "got" doesn't disappear into the "american idol" section (black on blue is tough to read). Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 00:22, 20 June 2007 (UTC)
Well, help make it better, redo it, same thing. OK, I guess not. Anyway, I did try to make it look like the original Idol script – the problem was, by hand it didn't look particularly convincing, so I just used GIMP's neon logo tool to kludge it. But yeah, thanks for your suggestions, so long as the concept's OK I can try a little harder with my chopping.

Try to find a pic of a Subway restaurant that was taken straight on, rather than on an angle, then reduce the number of colours and lower its resolution (there may be an effect to "pixelate"). This should make it look "in game", hopefully. Also, he's got no legs, which seems odd. Most people have them. I've got two myself. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 06:57, 12 June 2007 (UTC)
I tried to pixelate the subway picture but couldn't find the right effect to make it look a 1991 video game.--Weri long wang 11:33, 12 June 2007 (UTC)
I've never tried it, to be honest, but if you save the background at, say, 1/4 it's resolution, then put that lo-res version here and stretch it to fit the regular resolution, it should be "pixelated" (you'll need to mess with the resolution, probably. 1/4 is just a guess). Lowering the colour depth of the background should make it more EGA-like. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 11:55, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

1th: get Gimp. Spending all that time 'chopping with a crappy application to end up with, well, this, is a waste. It would be like buying a keyboard that's missing half of the letters; sure, you can still type, buy why?
2st: play around with Gimp. Tutorials may be your speed, but it's more fun just to mess around. You can always undo.

Wilbur thought he had won the coin toss to fly the Machine, and all went well for the first twenty seconds until the leather straps holding him to the damned thing snapped and his body was flung into the ocean.

  • After you get Gimp (or Microsoft Photodraw on ebay - its the graphics program for people who can't hack Gimp) then you need to start thinking satire and context. While I see what you are getting at, to me there are two issues with this image that don't work for me.
First is the builing on the left edge of the image - it needs to go.
The other issue is, even if the chop issue is resolved and cleaned up, all you have is a 747 and Kitty Hawk - that isn't enough to get more than an "eh" out of me - because there is an important element missing - Wilbur Wright. Where is he because he's suppossed to be on the plane flying it. So for comparision purposes, here's my rough take on what makes the joke work for me. (note - I understand that this needs a whole lot of help - it was just a quick chop to show how I would have done it.)

The sticks of dynamite pop out too much, mask them and shade them so they blend into the picture.

Does the diver's trajectory look too off or is it just me from starring at it for 2 long? --AmericanBastard 03:36, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

Little bit. He's diving more 9 o'clock, while the board is pointing 10:15. Also, he's too bright; dim him a bit, play with the brightness/contrast. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 04:04, 8 April 2007 (UTC)
The sun is supposed to be exposing him; from about 10:00. I darkened the rear slightly to add depth. So rotate him a few degrees? Considering distance, I placed him to be about 75% from the peek of his bound. Does the diving board look a bit funky? --AmericanBastard 04:45, 8 April 2007 (UTC)
The board does look funky. It's got no texture (it looks more like you painted a board, which you did, methinks). It may work better if he's just at the "leap" point near the start of a dive. From his posture it looks like that'd be best. With his current position in the air he'd be in the "stretch" point of the dive (and stretched out, rather than crouched). These are pretty technical diving terms, I admit; I'm somewhat of an expert in these matters, having never seen any form of diving whatsoever. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 20:38, 8 April 2007 (UTC)
Im not at my computer with adobe and won't be for another few days. When I get back on i'll move the diver closer to the start and add some kind of texture to the board. --AmericanBastard 02:35, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

Personall I feel the board needs to be longer instead of the diver closer to the board - after all, the diving platform is out over the water in the real wolrd, so it would reason thatthe board should be further out and over the side of the building.

2nd Modification! --AmericanBastard 23:23, 22 April 2007 (UTC)
Now it looks like he's about to fall over backwards. Try rotating both him and the board CCW until it looks like he's trying to go left. His shadow on the board is too "blobby"; try cutting it back a bit. Picture yourself as the sun looking down on him and make up his shadow from that. You look down on every one. You're the sun, damnit! --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 00:25, 23 April 2007 (UTC)
The length of the Board is good as is the edge that he's diving over. The thing with the light on the diver is that it seems to be coming from two different areas. I would 1) tone down the light on him. or crank up the light fill effect on the buildings around him, and shade the tops of his thighs. Then I would tip him ever so slightly forward on the board so that it looks as if he plans to tumble over the edge of the board.

  • The shadow on the ground is wierd. Removing it seems the painlessest way to go about things. -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 00:39, 29 April 2007 (UTC)
  • Right now this picture looks like it could be something you would see on Livejournal as a poor attempt at a funny.
  1. The board should be going outward from the building, and should be flat. Right now it looks like the board is jutting out of the roof at an awkward angle.
  2. The diver is at a strange angle, by the looks of his position, he should be just jumping off the board at about a 45 degree angle.
  3. The diver's lighting does not match the lighting of the rest of the picture. Try to find sources that are similar enough in lighting that there is less editing necessary to correct it.

Overall: From the looks of your sources, this image may not be possible to pull off as an actual photo. In this situation I would develop a two dimensional black and white "sign-style" picture. It would still get the same message across without the problems with editing quality. --Atomsk.gif Kaizer the Bjorn takkun Takkun (nya nya) (1961 model!) Check out T61! 16:25, 4 May 2007 (UTC)
