Here’s how you can turn a person, animal or object in one of your photos into a silhouette image, which can be used in a variety of photo editing projects. Using the Selection tools, you will draw around the object you want to use as the silhouette, then fine tune the edges of your selection in Edit Selection mode. Once you have your person or object outlined, just fill with black, apply some smoothing if required, and save as PNG format. 

Check out some samples of silhouette projects over at Scrapbook Campus.
