How to make a silhouette?
Thanks for all of your previous help.

I have an image of a person, with a white background.
How can I make this person image a silhouette? (and keep the white background)
Thanks

alpha to selection, then that should select the person (I hope) and then just paint over him.

Hope this works,
Willy

RE: How to make a silhouette?
Thanks for the replies.
However after looking around, I still don't know how to
"alpha to selection"

and when I performed the Color/Desaturate, it only showed three choices, which basically only converted the image to light grey.

Any additional help will be appreciated Smile
