turning a photo into 5 colors only for silkscreening
I need to silkscreen an image, but can only do one solid color at a time. I'll have a black t-shirt, so that's one color, then red, green, pink and silver to screen onto the shirt. I can only do a max of 4 colors on one background.

here's the image: http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1123/5276...d14d_b.jpg

Can someone tell me how to break this down into 5 cells of color in GIMP? Then I can silkscreen it.
