    Further explanation of the theme, provided by LACOSTER:

    "Now due to Kaz's great work with Spec 2, we can use our drivers in Photos. Show off
    what you can do to this great new feature with or without a car. What you can do might
    be limited, so be as creative as you like! "



    CARS: Any
    LOCATIONS: None, technically
    PHOTOTRAVEL: Yes, only!
    UNIQUE RESTRICTIONS: Must make use of new Avatar feature

    Please, ensure you read and understand all requirements for this competition. Failure to follow
    the rules may result in disqualification. If you have questions, send me a Private Message.
    This Thread will answer many possible questions you may have.

    • It is recommended you host your image on ImageShack, Photobucket, or Flickr.
    • Not sure how to post a thumbnail or preview image? Read this sticky!
    • Please use a clickable-preview to full-size, not a separate text link for it;
      it makes poll creation much easier!

    • One entry per user. It must be your own work, and never previously used in a comp.
    • Do not ask other users to choose your entry.
    • Mark your FINAL ENTRY clearly, with red text. On H2H weeks, which side, as well.
    • You may change your entry once. Do it clearly; edit out your previous entry, and
      either post the new one in a new reply, or in place of the original.
    • When submitting, use either a thumbnail or a preview image, linked to the full-sizer.
    • Preview images can not exceed 500 pixels in either direction.
    • A preview image must be representative of the full-size image. Do not add effects to it.
    • Do not post "Honourable Mentions" or outtakes - just your Final Entry, that's all.
    • Winner gets to choose the following week's theme, as well as the Top 15. Every fourth
      week, the poll will be H2H style: entries must choose a "team", leading to two 8-picture,
      4-day polls. The winners from each faces off in a final 48 hour poll.
    • Winners cannot enter in their own theme!
    • The Host may ask for the original image and it must be submitted if so.
      It's recommended to save the original image (preferably in-game) until week's ends.
    Failure to follow these rules will result in ignored entries and/or disqualification!

    What you may not do to a photo:
    • Alter the geometry of the car. No stickers, or body modifications not available in game.
    • Add shapes or objects from outside of GT5, signatures excepted.
    • Add lens flares or "artistic" filters to image.
    • Remove items from shot (scenery, other cars).
    • Use more than 1 image (HDR, photo-stitching, multi-exposure).
    • "Creative cropping". The main "image" must be four-sided, with 90-degree, upright corners.
    • Selective car colour changing: masking different parts to create racing stripes or similar.

    What you may do to a photo:
    • Crop and/or resize an image.
    • Adjust the level or curve values.
    • Alter the colour tone of the image (gradient maps, photo filters, colour balance, etc).
    • Car body colour change (all stickers/design features must remain, see "Remove Items" rule).
    • Adjust brightness, contrast, exposure, shadow/highlights.
    • Enhance shadows or highlights (dodge and burn tools in Photoshop, for example).
    • Add noise and/or diffuse glow.
    • Add a post-game tilt-shift blur, or apply a motion blur to a stationary Photomode shot.
    • Make use of Layer Blend Modes.
    • Use a Sharpening filter and/or tool.
    • Scale or enlarge rims.
    • Remove or modify license plates.
    • Remove the GT watermark.
    • Add a personal signature.
    • Clean up or fix jaggies, texture pixelation, or colour separation.
    • Add a vignette effect.

    Is there an operation manual available "how to bring the avatar into the scene"?
     
  8. ^ When selecting the placement of the car (right after selecting the camera location), press triangle to turn on the avatar. Then when moving the car around like you normally do, press start and it swtiches to the driver.

    Thanks to BMX and TDK I finally found the buttons where you can activate the avatar. Took me quite a while to find out that he's got eyes actually :)
