Merry Christmas Silhouttes Tutorial

This year I decided to make silhouettes of my kids
for Grandparent gifts,
and as a Christmas gift to all of you
here is a very easy tutorial.
First off hang a white sheet over a bright window.
Next take a side view photo of your child in front of the window.
Here is Milo's.

Next in photoshop make it a black and white.

Then bump up the contrast all the way and bump down

the red, green and blue until the person is completely black.

I found newspaper worked best for this.

Now you can be done if your ok with the grey background.
If not use your lasso set at 50% feather and lasso
everything but the person. After that go to layer, then new
and select new layer via copy. Chose a color ( I stuck with good old white)
click your paint bucket and fill in the lasso area.
Their you have it!!! Crazy easy!!!

If you have any ?????? let me know.
