With their easy to understand tutorial, I sifted through archived photos of our baby, Rufus until I came across this silhouette worthy shot:
Thinking that his trademarked one straight ear, one floppy ear would make a great silhouette, I cropped his head in photoshop using the Magnetic Lasso Tool and then copied it to a new blank photoshop document:
From there select "Image", "Adjustments" and "Brightness/Contrast." I took both the brightness and contrast to -100 to get the darkest silhouette possible:
Finally I saved the file as a jpeg image and printed on regular 8.5" x 11" white paper and cropped it to fit this fame I found for $7 (1/2 off) at World Market.
And there it sits on our Ikea Besta Bookshelf in the dining room!
