Dashboard Flip for the Automotive Industry

On the surface of it, horizontally flipping an image using Adobe Photoshop might seem a very simple task. However, if you are required to mirror a car’s interior shot, then things soon become very complicated. In this image, I flipped this vintage car over from a left to a right hand drive. This involved recreating and distorting every instance of text and graphics on the dashboard, steering wheel and gear stick. These items were then blended and shaded to match the global lighting. This conversion took a total of 1.5 hours to complete.
