    I have an image which I would like to use for something, and for this image i would like it to be a silhouette similar to the iPod ads. However, while I've found DIY's online they are all for Photoshop, which I sadly do not have. If anyone has Photoshop or Elements or w/e and would be willing to do this, that would be awesome. Thanks.

    Alright, thanks guys. Well, the image that I would like is below. Ideally, It would be awesome if you could silhouette the image and make the silhouette yellow. Now, in the middle of the body, if there could be a gradient of Red (left) and Green (Right) to resemble the portuguese flag. Now somewhere (wherever you feel it looks best) if you could put the words "iForça" [portuguese expression, if you were wondering (minus the "i" obviously lol)]. Anyways, thank you. I really appreciate it. Also, if you would like to contact me over email about this my email is nickelz92@gmail.com. Thanks again :)

    PS: If the picture could be cropped so that it's more centered off, that would be nice. Thanks once again.
    PPS: Once again, this picture is not of me it's of my nephew. Thanks again.

    Okay, Just wondering.. Was anyone still interested in doing this? If so, and hopefully :), I'd like to change the "request". Instead of the portugal thing, if you could just make it either look like the Leopard-esque "Viva la Vida" commercial.. or the classic full silhouette with the lime green background would do. Whatever you think would be best. Thanks x100 once again. :D

    Its quite hard as its a low res image and the contrast isn't that high, but here's the best I could do in the time (see attached).

    If you haven't got ps or pse, try pixelmator - my brother swears by it (think it's quite a bit cheaper

    I traced the person (you?) in Fireworks with the pen tool and converted to a selection, I did the best I could without cutting out body parts. ;)

    Also, I made the legs a bit different, otherwise it looks a bit strange as the detail is minimal. I left some contrast in there just to distinguish facial features, and shirts designs.

    I added an iPod with earphones as well, but there's a blank one too.
