Re: Ronny - how did you do that ?


I first selected the car with the Quick Selection tool.

I inverted the selection and jumped the background to it's own layer.

I saved the selection as an alpha channel.

On the background only layer, I Ctrl+clicked to make a selection, contracted the selection a few pixels, and then ran Content Aware Fill.

Then I ran Motion Blur on the background but instead of blurring in the direction of the car, I blurred 90 degrees to the car and dark streaks.

I created a mask from the alpha channel.

Finally, I added some noise to the background.

I wasn't sure if the car would look like it was going sideways or not.
