Minor Help needed (photo editing)

Need some collective help on a small project I'm working on.

So... below is the latest image of 78 I have taken today. This one is in .jpg not tiff like the art people need..so some of the quality is lost

I feel this one is ready for the presses. Let me know what you think. Its going to be used in a Half page add for Excellence.

Guess what company...LOL



I do have some talent besides pis_ing people off and getting dirty.

I would put in some text, that's going to be a funny looking ad without it.

Dude, it looks too fake...where are the oil drip stains

Seriously, looks like a nice shot. Look forward to seeing the final copy in print.

You probably know this, but like Mueller hinted, watch the color correction / palette issues. I just had to get a quick education in this trying to use the same art for print, web, t-shirts, etc. CMYK vs. RGB and all the other gibberish. Photoshop hell.

OK guy's.

The digital numbers for white is R=255 G=255 B=255

The entire background is done in 255 255 255 RGB.. that means it cant be yellow.

Mike.. lose the crappy monitor. All the rice girl pics have turned your monitor YELLOW.. LOL damn..that was a good one.

As I explained.. it lost a lot when I converted it to jpg. The friggin file is 7mb uncompressed.

Thanks Derek, I think I'm starting to understand your humor.

I was just making sure the actual layout for the pic looked "Ok"

Keep it coming.

B,

the yellow he is speaking of is on the lighted areas where there is reflection, it has a yellowish/goldish tint, not the background.

Ahh yes.

Keep your monitor Mikey.

The add will be black and white... so this wont happen in the add itself. My actual 7mb copy is clean.

I looked at it again in both tif and jpg. Only the JPG shows the pee yellow. How wierd. You cant read tif files with a browser, so I cant show you the "real" one.

Thanks D

Yeah, I guess I can see the yellow too. I'm only on a $1500 20" LCD flatscreen at the moment, so it could be the monitor (LOL).

I have a color-calibrated Sun 21" trinitron CRT at the office and can give the TIFF a look with my completely untrained eye tomorrow if you put it on a server somewhere.

Then again, if the print will be greyscale then it doesn't really matter.
