    Making my ride photos all nice and stuff...

    Here is the original photo, taken with a point and shoot camera (fit's in saddle bag)



    Here you see the first modification to the photo, I used Photoshop CS3, I started by duplicating the first layer, than applying a motion blur to the direction of the rider. Then I erased the top layer to reveal all the blur from the filtered image below...It is quite easy.



    Then this is the final image with touch ups and some vector brushed downloaded off the internet...



    Try it out to make some cool photos, it's fun!



    Photoshop CS3, Free alternative:Gimp

    Cool font, and your filters make it look like it's on actual canvas!

    No, actually it makes it look like he ran the photo through photoshop.

    Actually I did use PhotoShop. It was a multi-step process. First I applied sharpening twice to clean up the fuzziness some. Then I made a copy of the full layer. Then I clipped you out and deleted the background from layer 2 sitting on top. On layer 2 I pulled the curves a bit, bumped the contrast slightly, then applied some brush-stroke filter (can't remember which now). Then on background layer 1 I applied a motion blur, angled it to the direction of your travel and pulled the blur out some in pixel width (once again, can't remember ) . Then I went back and gave a slight motion blur to layer 2 but not too much so I wouldn't lose too much detail. Type was just a text layer that I applied a quick default drop-shadow to. Font is Subway - - similar to yours but not quite - - available on a lot of free font sites. Then it was just a matter of flattening it and resampling for the web.
