Dear 100 Hour Board,

How does one make a silhouette of the main subject of a digital photograph using the Adobe Suite or any other photo editing software? Is it easy?

A: Dear Snowball,

I can't tell you how many things I've learned to do regarding photo editing by just googling what I wanted to do. I can believably reduce beard stubble. Oh yeah. Check out this page on Easy Two Tone Silhouette, I think that's about what you're looking for. I know with my cheapo Adobe Photoshop Elements, the step by step instructions don't apply, but for the most part I can figure out what the same action would be in my software. You can also try searching for your particular program plus "silhouette." Good luck!
