Graphics Newbie Needs HELP!!

by Tsnyder 18 replies
Okay... all you graphics wizards!

I have a client who wants a picture of a car with flashing
headlights on his site. I'm using a blue AC Cobra because he
has one in stock.

So...

I grabbed a picture of a lighthouse with a flashing light
and cropped out the light... then pasted it over the headlights
in the picture... thinking I was being Mr. Clever... lol

Here's a page with the picture...

cobra

As you can see... the lights are flashing but not together.

Mr. Clever? Not so much... lol

So... how do I make the lights flash together?

OR...

How much would you charge to create what I actually need?
If we're creating something new it would be a nice touch to also
have some actual beams shining downward from the lights.

Thanks...

          I think it'd be better to get some kind of light effect instead of the white space.

          Close but no cigar! LOL

          Watch it for a few seconds... it gets out of sync again.

          Thanks for trying... I appreciate it.

        It's not pretty pathetic....it's really pathetic!

        I had a great laugh! I'm not really laughing at you but also at myself. It looks like something I would do.

          Oh come on!

          Give him a break!

          I'd probably do WAY worse.

            Sorry for posting so many times.

            But another of my opinions:

            I think another car would work better.

              No can do another car... like I said... he has one that's
              identical to this one... this is what he wants.

            It's physically impossible for them to go out of sync only two layers

            layer one lights are on

            layer two lights or off

            rinse and repeat...

            the getting out of sync you are seeing is the effect of eye strain,

                e-mail2u had it right the first time with one layer for both lights. The blinking starts messing with your eyes the faster the repetitions.
