1963 Ford Galaxie XL 352CI FE V8 4SPD Convertible






































First test using my new Photoshop 2018 residing and color/lighting editing. Also
first test using a document from my new Word 2016. Iím still in the learning
process for both and other things so have to go slow and watch what Iím doing.

This is just the first test.

I really don't like the way Word 2016 operates. It's really complicated to work with and figure out how it operates since there is no instructions that I can find to tell you how to do things. And there is too much added junk loaded in and showing that I have no idea what it is for nor do I care. It took me a while to figure out how to do things like my old document software worked. It doesn't function like the old one did. Gone are the days when things like this was simple and easy to operate. Guess I'm stuck with Word 2016 now. Don't know if the new expensive Office software works the same for its documents since Word is included in Office.

As for my new Photoshop 2018 I like it so far. I can resize photos by pixels again like before. I am also using their photo editor for color and lighting now that my old 10 year old Canon photo editor that I have been using all along that came with my 10 year old camera doesn't work properly now. So I guess I'll stick with Photoshop 2018.

For most everything else there seems to always be some little twirk that I have to figure out. Because of stuff like that and some new software I have to go slow and watch what I'm doing. I can't seem to get my speed up because of all this. Hope it gets better later on.

I can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Beautiful car. I did notice that it appears to be a 390 though, which would have been my preference.

What a great car. My Dad bought one of these new in 63, it's the first car I really remember since I was 6 years old at the time. It was a white 2dr hardtop with red interior, don't remember the engine size in it other than it was a V8. I'd love to have that car today.

Welcome back Larry, pictures look great as usual.

Again, another reminder of the past when you could order any car any way you wanted it. As for the 35 2 and 390, they were both dogs as far as performance.

Hi Larry,

With respect, if I may offer some small bit of advice on lighting, I've noticed in the past that your adjusted photos seem to come off as too "hot" on the screens I use to view them. A recent bright green car you posted comes to mind. I can't recall which, but I happened to be familiar with the original photo and the one you had adjusted came out as a glaring neon version. I think it might possibly be that your own screen brightness settings are not quite correct, but that's just a guess. I understand your wanting to brighten them up a bit, but often, it results in a harsher effect than I believe you might intend. Again, I'm wondering if the settings on your own screen might be a little dimmer than most defaults. In any event, as a professional artist, I use Photoshop and other imaging programs on a daily basis, and I've found that sometimes, using the "auto contrast," and "auto color" features and then adjusting the brightness about 20% usually does a very good job of getting the light right, without making the brightness too harsh on the eyes. I'm not sure if the version you are using has these specific features, but there's usually an auto setting in most imaging programs, and you can always tweak a bit after it's been set. Just a thought, and hopefully, it'll help.

I appreciate all the time you put into these. I hope my little critique is helpful to you. Thanks, and good luck!

Best,
Rich

Love those '60s Galaxies. Too bad that we never got a full size '60s Ford, except for the '61 FM station wagon.

Beautiful car.

Larry - you might try downloading Apache Open Office. It's a free program that mimics Microsoft Office. It's surprisingly complete and full of features.
