    Default Ask an Expert... All design rel. ?s here!!

    I think this should be a sticky razor.
    i realize that we have a tutorial section but this is dedicated to specific questions that could be answered in text for with minimal uploads to outside servers. these culd be about PS AI 3D or art related questions that don't even require a tutorial. like What does the curves option do? or what is vector graphics? or whats better 3dmax or maya? or whats the diff between jpg and tiff files?
    feel me?


    I welcome other Design Gurus to feel free to answer any questions or add to the discussion.

    So drop your burning questions here and we'll all pool our knowledge together and elevate.

    you can try Ron's way.... LMFAO!!!



    when i want a to get a silhouette... i use the the threshold tool. just go to image > adjustments > threshold.. then adjust the slider. with some images you can get a complete silhouette... others you may have to fill in the black in some spots.

    if it comes out choppy... do what Ron said and zoom in real close and trace the whole image withe polygonal lasso tool... the select inverse and press delete. takes some practice but its not that hard and you can snag some nice results.

    hope that helps!!!

    I'm coming in extremely late here.

    IMO, the very best way to get a silhouet is to use the free hand pen tool.
    You'll need to learn to get the hang of it, but it gives the best results.
    No choppyness, no jagged edges etc....

    Just make a selection around the figure you wanna make a silhouet of, and fill it in with whatever color.

    word that is prolly the best way to do it... takes some time to get to really know the pen tool, but you can get amazing results once you master it.
