Creative brief

The buyer added updates to the brief. Read them.

LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:

We are a company in the automotive industry, and we need images of cars for our web site.

HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:

What we need are PATHS tracing the outlines of each image. Each image needs the following 3 paths traced:
1. The outline of the entire car.
2. The non-painted areas of the car (mask). In the case of a red car, this would be any area that is *not* painted red. This includes windows, tires, chrome, etc. When this path is subtracted from the first path, only the painted areas of the car should remain
3. The far car windows. This includes the windows from the far side of the car that are visible.

The final product will be a file named Odyssey_traced.psd, and will contain the original 12 images plus the set of paths for each angle. The paths should be named like the paths in the sample images. The entries should be sample screenshots of the paths, much like the files provided as samples.

OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:

The general public.

WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE (or we don't want to see) THIS IN OUR DESIGN:

Essentially, what we need is a clean set of traces for each view.

Brief updates

26-Nov-08 12:03 a.m. GMT
1. A major requirement is that the traced areas can be cleanly separated from the original image as separate files. If this can be done via alpha channels as opposed to paths then they can be used.

2. For previews, it is probably easier and clearer to export the clipped outline, mask, and/or window portions of the original images, instead of taking screenshots of the actual paths.
