    I think that looking for metal tutorials won't result in this look because the substrate is not metal. It's plastic. A matte plastic with metalic flakes in the paint. So you'd want to look for plastic effect tuts. And probably soften the highlights to simulate the soft, diffused look that...

    How far back will CS allow you to upgrade?

    From what Adobe's website is saying, this is a version 7.0 upgrade. You could call Adobe and see if they (still) have special older version upgrade rates. As of a year ago they did for 5.5 users... this may well have changed with some of the new policies they are implementing to thwart...

    Standard pixel dimensions for a cd case cover?

    Getting blue out of car reflections

    Hi Naru, Yeah it would be nice to see an example. But one method I use on occasion which works well (depending, of course). Is use the Image/Adjustment/Replace Color tool. There you can use the eye dropper on your photo to pick up the color range you wish to alter/change or delete. And...
