Silhouettes. Perfect for a holiday card:
Step One: Get profile snapshot(s) of a person(s):
Step Two: Use the lasso tool in Photoshop to select the profile and delete all other information. Feel free to edit out any bed-head or bad-hair-day hair.
Step three: Using the magic wand tool in Photoshop, select the white background. Select “Inverse” and under Edit->Fill, choose “fill with black.”
Now just use Adobe Illustrator to live trace that thing. If you want to get all fancy, you could stick the heads on some sort of bodies. I felt like these boys should wear stocking caps and go sledding:
That IS cute! NOW just have the file turned into a plate and print it
on your printing press.
Wait, what? You don’t have one?
