    It's no secret I've long been a fan of the standard cars since GT5 - mainly because I enjoy the challenge of cleaning them up and trying to make them look closer to premium. Of course not everyone has the desire or patience to do so but fortunately PD have taken the time to somewhat fix up a number of standards in GT6.
    So this week I'ld like you to search out one of these upgraded standards or 'semi-premium' cars and show it off in all it's glory. See next post for a list. :)


    CARS: Any upgraded standard
    LOCATIONS: Any
    PHOTOTRAVEL: Yes
    UNIQUE RESTRICTIONS: Must be a PD fixed up standard but you can fix it up further yourself if you wish. ;)

    • 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.
