Making a Silhouette in Photoshop

It's time to make another silhouette. I've made ones for my other children and since I'm updating my gallery wall it is time to make one for Lydia!

I thought I would show you the process from start to finish. So today you get a little video tutorial showing you how to make your own silhouette in photoshop. This tutorial should work for the full version of photoshop and photoshop elements (I'm using CS3).

You'll have to come back Saturday to see the silhouette finished and framed on my wall.

Before we begin there are a few things you'll have to forgive me for:
1. My crackly voice. I have a cold and I sound a little rough.
2. My moments of forgetfulness (i.e. searching for the smooth tool).
3. My repetitiveness. Remember: Use the backspace to undo what the magnetic lasso tool is doing!

Okay, here's the video. If you have any questions please let me know and remember to come back on Saturday to see the finished product.
