I don't have photoshop and even if i did, i don't know how to use it but I wanna see what options i have in terms of painting my fairings.
Can you photoshop experts out there please play around with this pic of my bike and use your creative talents to sugest some cool designs for my Honey?
I want to add some blue to my bike and get rid of the black at the bottom. I still want to keep a lot of yellow though, so it'll be a yellow /blue combo to match my leathers better. Here is the stock pic of my Honey and some pics of bikes i want it to be similar to. (I've already got the Lockheart and Phillips flush mounts on the front). Thanks in advance to all.

And here are another two beauties:
(if girls like this hang out on bikes that look like that, than if my bike looks like that, will girls like this hang out on my bike too?:D )

dude you bought the wrong brand, they only hang out on the zooks :)

I've seen a few Corona gsxr600's on the street, I believe they were a limited release back in 99 or 2000 much like the movistar gixxer 600 you can get today.

Carona Brand, eh? Such a sweet bike..... I love the telefonica too!! If i had the coin.... i wonder if i can just get some massive blue decal sheets and cut out the designs i want. On second thought, i'd better leave that kind of stuff to people with experience. I wouldn't want my bike to look really crappy with air pockets everywhere!

Bluestone, what you ask of the 'photoshop experts' takes a TONNE of time. I'm sure arai can attest to it. I'd recommend grabbing Photoshop or something similar and learn to play yourself, that way you have unlimited possibilities and changes.

Color changes on the other hand are easy; throwing a sticker kit on a bike, difficult, espcially when it aint' the same bike and the same angle. ;)

Oh i see. I thought it was a quick and easy thing. I'd be interested in seeing what i could do with just colour changes though. Stickers and stuff aren't necessary. I've been meaning to get photoshop but all those other bike accessories have been draining my $$ flow!!
Soon.... i will have a digital cam, photoshop, a better printer, a web cam......

I've started throwing something together, but I'm at work so cant work on it this sec. I'll post when I'm done, looks pretty cool so far though :) . It does take awhile but if I have time I'll try to help out, can't always guarantee I'll have time though ;) . I've also gotten pretty fast at this stuff as I use photoshop a LOT at work, and I was a photoshop instructor at the vancouver film school

real quick just with a bunch of stickers. And I didn't want to do an exact carona copy as you can't have that unless you ride a suzuki :D

i noticed u added a passenger seat cowl. i think it would look dope on a ninja if someone did that!:cool
however, the blue on the bike to me looks a little too blobbish if u know what i'm sayin.. imo at least....
n the blue at the bottom of fairing should be same colour as blue on top too.. :D

Why don't you check out www.tapeworks.com they have graphic kits for your bike and they are pretty to install. I have installed there vinyl and my own custom cut vinyl so if you need help let me know, they are reasonable, but is you see something you like let me know as you can usually get it cut locally a lot cheaper.

i'm currently deciding whether i wanna get new boots or new graphics.... maybe later in the summer i'll be able to get both....
thanks for the pic Arai, I'm going to see what my paint shop 7 test download can do for me too.
And Digi168, how much would it cost me if i just wanted some solid stripes or flames like this:
