Adding elements to an image
Posted 08 September 2006 - 08:05 AM
He's taking a picture of a community, then creating what it could look like. I'm thinking he does this in photoshop where he has a library of pre-designed elements and he simply puts them into the exisiting image, scales them, and changes perspective in order to create the output. Thanks in advance for your input!

Yes, I think it's all photoshop work. Some stuff (people, trees, trash bins etc) could be existing images placed in there in the right perspective. The real skill here comes in making it look authentic, which I think it does. Check the tree-shadow on the car in the foreground.
Would love to see a hi-res version of this.

This is a bit off the mapping topic but I was hoping someone here may know or have thoughts on the subject. I want to know how he did this:

Thanks for the link. I am going to start messing around in PS and seeing if I can create anything even remotely close to it. Thanks
Good luck! My brother is a Landscape Architecture major over at ASU... he gets assignments like this for classes. I'm sure the students never produce anything as quality as the link, but I'm also sure they get a CD-ROM library of finished images with different lighting and stuff.
For serious PSers, take a look at fark.com (they have PS contests). They should like to some more serious PS contest sites as well.

For our design visualization services we hire Newlands & Co. He primarily uses 3D Studio Max for renderings and not only creates static images, but also great animations. They can be so photorealistic it looks like a video.
There are links (streaming Flash or WMV) to lots of examples on his website. In addition he wrote about the process he uses to create Photo-Simulations in Seven Steps.
