    • Please use a clickable-preview to full-size, not a separate text link for it; it makes poll creation much easier!

      Conversation and not posted in this thread, any pics posted in this thread will not be considered for the poll.
    • Your PM may consist of the image in either thumbnail/preview with a link to the full size, just the full size image or just a link to the full size.

    • Alter the geometry of the car. No stickers, or body modifications not available in game.
    • Add shapes or objects from outside of GT6, signatures excepted.
    • Add lens flares or "artistic" filters to image.
    • Remove items from shot (scenery, other cars).

    • "Creative cropping". The main "image" must be four-sided, with 90-degree, upright corners.

    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).

    My Internet was down for about a day, so I wasn't able to give y'all a heads up. :guilty: Hopefully the fact that as a result there was a bit more time to enter kinda sorta comoensates for that. :)
