Inspirations for Google and Bing

  • Everybody knows th shameless mess of Google and Bing-images. What i do and what you can do is, bring more harmony in your tiles with a "little" work in Photoshop, like this example:


    Before:



    after:



    It's a "little" handpainting, setup lightning and selektive colorcorrection. Hope, you like it. :)


    My next question: Do i have now the copyright on my own work in this case?


    Or, as I sometimes do, i combine google and bing images into one tile.

  • My next question: Do i have now the copyright on my own work in this case?

    No, sadly not.

    But I combine both sources as well for my Comores-Scenery. (Sadly cannot publish it as well.)

    Combining two or more sources helps to eliminate Clouds for example.

    But it is a lot of work to do, to get good results.

  • But, you can legally share (maybe not here) your work for testing purposes. A request for testing to see if your work looks the same or different on a different pc setup is perfectly legal. Also to look for errors and omissions. (some call beta testing) :P

  • Could you post your work flow that led to these results? Which program and which tools you used? I tried some image corrections with Photoshop for one of my own sceneries but no matter what I do I just can't get the colors right. It looks better than before but by no means perfect. I played with saturation, color temperature, exchanging colors and so on but nothing really got me where I wanted to go

  • I try, to do a tutorial. :) But, what can i say now: It's only made with Photoshop ( CS2 ) and Love! ;) In this case its a more complicated and i believe, i needed 10 hours of work for this Tile ( Record! ). ;(

  • Ook, i try a little tutorial from my basics with google and bing. Hope, you like it! :)


    First: ALL pics from Google and Bing are to dark! :(


    I have for Google and Bing two different steps. Here, what you should do first with Google-images in Photoshop:







    After this steps, the Googelimages are looking really beautifull! :)


    The Bing-images needs more Contrast; setup only the contrast in Photoshop +25.


    Now to the distortion in all Pics. It's a complex theme and you should have knowlegde abaut the basics in Photoshop. Here a example, what every guy can simple do:


    In this case, we have an ugly border - overpaint it, like me:



    We have many ways, to correcht all the different issues - in other case play partial with gamma correction, color-change, collor balance and all, what you have. You should made a referently image for all other images and then, you must have a good eye for colors.


    Hope I could help a little. :)
