Chapter 13. Invisible Compositing > You’re in the Driver’s Seat

You’re in the Driver’s Seat

We’re going to start off working with a particular image with a lot more attention to detail than we applied with some of the earlier projects in this book. We’re trying to make this next assemblage invisible. I’m not going to make things especially easy for you. Several of the components will be a little on the challenging side.

We’re going to start with the photo convertible.pcx, found on the CD-ROM bundled with this book. It’s an old digital photo of a 1995 model-year white convertible, taken with a superhigh-resolution digital camera of the time at an amazing 1024 × 768-pixel resolution—more than 3/4 of an entire megapixel! Moreover, the photo, shown in Figure 13.1, has an unfortunate overall reddish cast, along with some bad color in the upper half of the photo caused by the limitations of the antique sensor. Fortunately, we can fix the red cast, and we don’t really need any part of the photo other than the car itself. I’m going to break down each step of the project into individual tasks that you can work on independently.
