    Yup. It's a little bit like the ploys of 5 year olds who, when told they cannot have what they want, will put on a hang-dog face and start complaining in a really sad voice about how you hurt their feelings, in an attempt to blackmail you by making you feel bad about saying "no" and giving them what they wanted in the first place to make up for having "hurt" their feelings.:D

    Yes. Lets do. But at least be fair in your comparison. You were clearly just spinning the issue. Don't just be purposefully sloppy and compare any pictures without matching proportions.

    The porsche is slightly slanted so when you rotate the view back to the same incidence as viewing with the smart car the rear wheel axis will match better. Blue line (same pixel dimension) shows front face to steering wheel.

    Clearly spinning the issue? Perhaps you're still ignoring the fact that those pictures were photoshopped? When you found someone that actually made one like that, then we will continue to discuss this issue, because atm there is no point in discussing something that came out of a computer software.

    P.S. You shrunk the Smart car picture so that it aligns perfectly, talking about fairness?

    It's a shame the ExIF data was culled; none of the Photoshop identifying marks are showing up in the ExIF data that's still there. Of course, absence of proof is not proof of absence, so this lack of ExIF data proves nothing about whether or not the images were photoshopped (it could just be because they were hosted on imageshack, which seems to cull most of the ExIF data out of the images they host).

    its not the point. at the point we were discussing whether it was even possible to make a car like that. you just compared two pictures out of proportion.

    of course i shrunk the smart car. thats what you should have done or enlarged the porsche to make them the same dimension. you can't compare something that isnt the same. thats what you did. i shrunk it so the wheel axis aligned. then i added the yellow outline to show how an enlarged wheel rim will look like. obviously then they are in the same scale then.

    Indeedy, doody, you did! Still, I wish the ExIF stuff got left alone. I like to poke around in that stuff.

    you were spinning the isue by comparing pictures that cannot be compared fairly. due dilligence would have been making sure that the wheel axis at least matched first. all you did was show 2 pictures of irrelevance for comparison.

    also we were way past whether those pictures were photoshopped past page3. by the time you made your post the discussion was whether such deformed cars were possible to make. you said it wasnt possible.

    Quote:
    "even if you use a Smart car chassis, it still won't give you the same effect, let alone using a go-kart one"

    so you were wrong.


    Again, by page 3 there was no contest about photoshopping. it was about whether it was possible to make such a car, but nice find

    Do tell. You mind pointing out the post on page 3 in which the issue of photoshopping is settled?
