Question Technique Request

I've seen some "black chrome" on cars recently, for example the "custom" Jettas that VW was putting out recently. Anybody have any suggestions, in either Photoshop or Paintshop Pro, of how to convert normal chrome to "black" chrome?


Thanks a million!

i know what your talking about, BMW is doing it too, im not exactly positive on how to achieve this, but If I were to guess I would say play with the contrast a little bit or maybe take something that is chrome and lower the brightness thats about all I would do

Yeah, I was thinking about doing it with Levels, instead of just brightness/saturation, but that's gonna take a LOT of tinkering, and I was hoping somebody would already have it worked out.

Guess it'll be my trick, then!

You mean do it with a black layer? Doesn't sound very likely, but I'll give it a shot.

Thanks
