The ideal picture to use for this tutorial is a side view with a uniform background...The closest your picture is to this view and background, the better it will look in the end.

With that said, open your picture up in Photoshop and duplicate the layer just in case you screw up.

Right click on the image in the Layers pallette and click "Duplicate Layer"

<div class='bbimg'><a href='http://www.maximumgamerz.com/forums/dragon/tutorials/duplicate.jpg' target='_blank'>Image</a></div>

Click ok when the dialog box pops up.

Now, select the Polygonal Lasso Tool and draw a circle around the front wheel. Be sure to leave room around the wheel to include highlights and shadows.

<div class='bbimg'><a href='http://www.maximumgamerz.com/forums/dragon/tutorials/polygonal.jpg' target='_blank'>Image</a></div>

<div class='bbimg'><a href='http://www.maximumgamerz.com/forums/dragon/tutorials/carsquish/squish01.jpg' target='_blank'>Image</a></div>

After selected, press Ctrl + C then Ctrl + V to copy and paste this wheel selection into a new layer.

Now, click your Background Layer in the Layers Pallete

<div class='bbimg'><a href='http://www.maximumgamerz.com/forums/dragon/tutorials/carsquish/squish02.jpg' target='_blank'>Image</a></div>

Select the Polygonal Lasso Tool and draw a circle around the rear wheel. Be sure to leave room around the wheel to include highlights and shadows.

<div class='bbimg'><a href='http://www.maximumgamerz.com/forums/dragon/tutorials/carsquish/squish03.jpg' target='_blank'>Image</a></div>

After selected, press Ctrl + C then Ctrl + V to copy and paste this wheel selection into a new layer.

You should now have 4 layers - the original, the duplicate, the front wheel, and the rear wheel. Hide all of the layers except for your duplicate (Background Copy)

<div class='bbimg'><a href='http://www.maximumgamerz.com/forums/dragon/tutorials/carsquish/squish04.jpg' target='_blank'>Image</a></div>

With your duplicate layer selected, go to Edit > Free Transform. Click and drag the left side of your image and shrink it down to whatever size you want...anything around about half of the original should be good. Click the check mark at the top of the screen when you are done.

<div class='bbimg'><a href='http://www.maximumgamerz.com/forums/dragon/tutorials/carsquish/squish05.jpg' target='_blank'>Image</a></div>

Click on the eyes for the wheels layers once again to make them visible. Once visible, drag each original-sized wheel onto the new, squished car. You will have to select each individual wheel layer to do so.

<div class='bbimg'><a href='http://www.maximumgamerz.com/forums/dragon/tutorials/carsquish/squish06.jpg' target='_blank'>Image</a></div>

Right now...your car is pretty ugly...Time to fix that. Select the front wheel and go to Edit > Transform > Distort.

<div class='bbimg'><a href='http://www.maximumgamerz.com/forums/dragon/tutorials/distort.jpg' target='_blank'>Image</a></div>

Click and drag the corners and sides of the box until your wheel fits a little better. Dont worry about the jagged edges, that will be fixed.

Repeat the Distort on your rear wheel also...Once both wheels are completed, you should have something that looks similar to this.

<div class='bbimg'><a href='http://www.maximumgamerz.com/forums/dragon/tutorials/carsquish/squish07.jpg' target='_blank'>Image</a></div>

It still doesnt look perfect...Grab the Eraser tool and select one of your wheel layers.

<div class='bbimg'><a href='http://www.maximumgamerz.com/forums/dragon/tutorials/eraser.jpg' target='_blank'>Image</a></div>

Change the brush size to an appropriate size for your erasing and change the Opacity to around 50%. This can be done at the top of the screen.

<div class='bbimg'><a href='http://www.maximumgamerz.com/forums/dragon/tutorials/carsquish/squish08.jpg' target='_blank'>Image</a></div>

Now, carefully erase the areas around each wheel to clean up the overlaps...You will need to select each wheel separately in the Layers Pallette to do so.

You can also use the paint brush...whatever works...to touch-up areas until you get....

A new, squished, hot-wheels-like car!

(yes, there are flaws, but this isnt supposed to be perfect)
