2 It looks Just like mine. Same color, same wheels same windows, same lights...

So what is the big deal?
Copyright infringement? Yeah, I made millions off that.

Gimme a break.
It'* one of many thousands.

It'* gone, be happy!

You need to chill out..... really..... I was only curious as to why you did it.
I wasn't saying what you did was wrong, or that I wanted it removed. The only person that could/should be upset is the owner of the car/photograph.

You need to just chill out and understand that most of us here were simply puzzled as to why you copied and PS'd someone elses car..... it'* just unusual.... that'* all.

... and 1993 SLE is right...... a 96 SSEi is very different (to a Bonneville owner) then a 93 SE.
I'm chilled.... Wasn't even warm... But thank you.

As to why I copied it, My camera isn't working, and I saw something familiar,
in the background.
It was a place that I liked. An Overlook on route US 287, where one can see blue skies for tens of miles.( if it'* not raining, which it has been all week) It has that same stone wall.
At least to my memory.

I used artistic license, and made my own creation. I used that car as a model.

Andy Warhol did that with Campbell soup, and we know where that went.
I made all of ...... Er... sorry...... I didn't .

Well, from the tone of the previous posts, it'* like I had a connection to
some genocide, or something. Why should anyone be upset?

The owner wrote me, demanding an answer, and I gave him one.
I saw this thread, and replied with a removal. No one asked me, it was my choice.
I felt that as a Noob, here, if I did something that offended, I'd correct it.

I didn't use Photoshop. Mainly because, I don't have photoshop.
The work, was done with "Microsoft Paint".
(the generic version, that'* bundled with Windows)

{My Thanks, to Corvettecrazy, and everyone else, for the compliments though.}

To me the differences in Bonnevilles, are nothing but a set of badges.
Perhaps in time as I come to know the nuances, I'll have a different opinion.
This is my first ever Bonneville, and I've had it all if a month.
(I wouldn't know an SLE from an GXP!) and still trying to get a handle on
this myriad of letters and numbers used here.
Oh, and I'm not a car nut... at least not since the early 50'*.
But I digress.

So that'sthe reason I added a photo to my sig.

Actually I think that is a great idea.


Is it possible to put up the same size pic of each one so we can spot the differences?? I know there is a clear pic of the original sig pic, but the PS one was zoomed in for the post ( I think), if we could get a clear one of each, I think we would have a fun game on our hands.
WYSIWYG! That'* it there isn't any "clearer" pic.

Unless someone with P/* can do something. But then .....
arent we doing the opposite of the reason why I took it off?
(Offending the orig owner ? ? ?)

I don't even think that you can call MS paint a editing program, for you to be able to do that with MS paint alone is great, there are NO OPTIONS on that wanna be program.

I still like my idea of making a "Spot the Not" game out of this.

EDIT:
If the original person is that offended, then we can make a game with someone else'* car then. I thought since you already made it we should go with it.

Ok
The obvious, is there'* no fountain, white fence road or trees in Bkgrnd.

They've also already picked up on:
The light pole reflection , in rear window, and door
Cloud in window
Antenna,
Sunroof,
Foglight

The other changes, still to be found are:

looks like one is green and one is black, but it might just be the color on this puter. at a freinds house right now. and clouds in the sky (not in optimus pic) cant realy tell what it says on the door. i can tell the one is an ssei but not sure about the other one.
um whan i first saw this i was like no way fog lights one is se other ssei. and the se has them turned on but i didnt see anyother lights on the car not that im thinking of it. and the back ground stuff. and the reflection of the light wasnt in the winddow or on the doors. but yes i would have to say this is a very good job, even more so coming that it was done on ms paint and not photoshop. i have tryed to photoshop stuff with paint a few times VERY VERY hard and well i just dont have the paitence.

Oooh! ...........Too obvious. Didn't even consider that...

The addition to the wall height, is a continuance of ....the fountain

Also didn't conside, the obvious curb behind the car.
and the missing " 1996 SSEi "
There'* still four more not so obvious items left...

Actually there'* more... But you can't see it very well in that pic
I added turn signal LED'* to the mirror.
Blow up** the top outer edge of the mirror, you'll see it.

** Use "Paint", to open the pic....
choose :
  • "View" /
    "Zoom" /
    "Large size",
    scroll up- down / left- right, to view all

the fogs, are angel eyes and both, modes are lit
the headlamps have blue bulbs
I have no idea what the badge says. I thought I had removed it...
Perhaps I forgot to save that action.

All in all, it took close to six hours to complete ......Pixel... by... pixel
choose color -- color an area-- zoom back to-- check looks-- zoom up to correct-
save- repeat-save-repeat-save-repeat-oops! -repeat------- etc.
(doing a "Fill" action didn't work well because of the shading.)

Quality really disintegrated when it was saved, closed, and then reopened.

OK ! Thanks. That'* very gentlemanly of you.

It is too long a process to just play with though.
It took close to 6 hours to do that one, But it was
something I couldn't stop ........ once I had started.

Maybe I'll get P/* and play some.
Don't have a whole lot of free time, with my other responsibilities.

It'* back!.................
