Fake Numberplate creatingEdit

Hi DeFacto. Just wondering if it possible if you could tell me how you do that fake number plate effect with your QI images. As much as I like to document every cars on the road I also want some of my best promoted as QI. Knowing how to do this would be very much helpful and getting a image promoted to QI a less hit-n-miss. Unless it limited and tedious to do. I'm also still practising of fixing perspective. I'm not the best at understanding instructions by word of mouth and can understand it better with examples, pictures etc, just who I am I guess.

Many thanks. --Vauxford (talk) 19:02, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

Hi Vauxford, the number plates are hard work. You saw Ralf Roletschek's ideas on the QI page. I do it differently. I choose the registration I want (but deliberately a non-UK-valid one) and type it into a number plate selling website which offers a preview image. I then do a screen-capture of that and move into a graphics editing package. There I blank the original plate as best I can using the original background colour. I then select just the characters of the new registration from the screen-capture and copy them to the clipboard. I then paste them onto the blanked plate in the car image and manipulate them there to get the correct alignment.
For the perspective correction, you need to concentrate on getting all the obvious verticals in the picture correct and parallel to the image's left and right edges. This will include vertical corners in walls, vertical door edges, fence posts, lampposts, shop window frames, etc. I tried to correct your Hyundai image but there wasn't quite enough room in your crop to allow for the rotations necessary to do a good job.
Hope that helps. -- DeFacto (talk). 19:31, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
@DeFacto: I updated a version which is less cropped. Maybe you could have a go with that. Do you mean verticals like vertical lines on objects? --Vauxford (talk) 19:40, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
@Vauxford: I've uploaded a version with better verticals and annotated the natural vertical features I used for guidance. -- DeFacto (talk). 20:04, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
@DeFacto: Is it fine for it to be tilted like that? Other than that, thank you very much. --Vauxford (talk) 20:07, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
@Vauxford: it's not tilted, the verticals are all vertical now - that's how it should be. -- DeFacto (talk). 20:28, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
@DeFacto: That makes much more sense! Thank you and I will most defniatelly try out your method of adding a fake reg plate and Rolf's method if I can understand. (It is in German after all) --Vauxford (talk) 20:51, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
