Chapter 14. Fantasy Compositing > Create a ‘50s Era Postcard

Create a ‘50s Era Postcard

Here’s a quickie. I’m going to show you how to create one of those postcards from the 1950s—the ones where the colors were so strange and the greetings a little weird. (“Wish you were here?” Then who would you send the card to?) Use samoabeach.pcx, found on the CD-ROM bundled with this book, or create your own.

The original photo, shown in Figure 14.27, is a bit dull; the sky is overcast and the colors are not of the vibrant sort you’d expect on a visit to Samoa. That’s the secret behind these postcards: The destinations all looked this way until someone applied some deceptive tricks to them, as we’re going to do. The chief difference is we’re going to use Photoshop.
