    Ok, Photomanipers attention please...

    There's a fan edit project in the works where the editor is taking TMP and trimming the fat, doing some re-arranging and creating a new opening sequence from TOS eps depicting the classic E coming home from the 5 year mission prior to being refit.

    What's needed is a manip of Matt Decker pre-Doomsday Machine, something where he's looking not only clean but a little younger. It will only be briefly seen as a photo or on a monitor in Kirk's (Will Decker's) quarters, but it will be big enough to be noticeable. While you're at it, an "Academy Years Will Decker" could also be useful.

    Anyone who's willing to donate their time and efforts would be greatly appreciated.

    Well I figured I'd take a quick stab at it. Here is Lieutenant commander Matt Decker on the bridge of a starship in the mid-2250's.


    The toughest part was colorizing the old pic from that other show he was on. The quality of the image was radically different from the material from "The Cage" that I used for the uniform and the background. I must admit that this type of photomanipulation is not really my bag usually, but it was an interesting diversion. Feel free to use it in the TMP remix. I expect it'll be a pretty small detail in the shot so the small size of the image shouldn't hurt you too badly. I still have the psd too in case you'd rather have a less busy background for the pic.

    I'd like to see anyone else's interpretation of this request too, so don't decide to not do one just cause I did it first...
