Coloring pages


I just found a tutorial (click the word "tutorial" for the link) on how to make coloring pages from your photographs using Photoshop. It's really easy and my kids have loved coloring pictures of themselves.

Just a couple suggestions:
*make sure you have your foreground color set to black and your background color set to white.
*photos with simple backgrounds work the best.
*you can erase shadows and lines you don't want with your brush tool (change the color to white.)

It's so much fun you may be printing some to color yourself!

I can't wait to try this out! I think I can try to work it in to a YW lesson somehow. "Color me faithful"

That looks so fun!!! I don't have photoshop though. What a great idea...I wonder if I can do it on a program that I have.
