Put Any Car on the Showroom Floor

In this tutorial I am going to show you how to put any car on the showroom floor, even yours. I could not find a good stock photo of my car so I just found a random picture to use to explain these methods. Here is a comparison of where I started and where I finished.

Then grab your Gradient Tool in the same place you grabbed your paint bucket tool:

Make sure your gradient tool is set to these settings:

I split those images up so they would fit on this web site, so those settings are really all on the top bar.
