Susan M. Campbell August 02, 2008

Love this effect!! Would you be willing to share how you did this? #6261623

Colleen Farrell August 02, 2008

Thanks for the great comments and encouragement, everybody--I really appreciate it! :D

This is just a composite of the car and the wall. To create the punch-through effect, I followed a video tutorial on the Ntl Assoc. of Photoshop Professionals' (NAPP) website. I think you have to be a member ($99/year and well worth it) to access it, but there are probably others on the web that are free. #6261780
