WRX Evo 4 Decal

As I have only had the one comment posted to my blog since I cranked it up (which, I guess, is a whole lot better than none) I feel that I should respond to it. Rather than respond with a 'buried' reply to her comment I thought I might as well respond with a blog post.

Her comment related to the Subaru WRX logo in the middle of my heading banner. In case I have changed the banner graphic by the time others get to read this—and they wonder what I am rabbiting on about—following is a reduced-size reduced-depth version of the heading banner graphic I am talking about.



 

 

 
The comment contained the question: Where did the middle picture come from? They reason this question was asked is that the reader is familiar with this particular Subaru Impreza decal but had not seen a coloured version of it like this. This is because the original photograph that I took did not look like the one in my banner graphic. Following is the original photograph before doing some cropping and simple colour changes using PhotoShop Elements.

WRX-Small

This picture was cropped down to just the decal part, brightened by setting the levels (or setting the "black and whites" as some people refer to it), and then I used the PhotoShop Elements magic wand to select the WRX and fill it in with a bright blue, select the inside of the "evo" and fill it with yellow, and finally select the inside of the 4 and fill it with a darker blue.

So that solves that mystery. I don't have a specially coloured decal on the Evo 4, I just improved the picture I took of the dull grey one that is on it.
