A picture taken this past weekend of my granddaughters 4th birthday. Not a great shot but it achieves what I intend to do with it.

Yesterday,

Great idea done with skill. The combination of yellow and blue adds to the impact.

Aloha and thanks for submitting.

I figured out how to do most of this by having multiple images open and using selections and the clone tool. However, I don't know how you got the outline around the mum-silhouette of the girl. How did you do that?

Cal,

I use Photoshop Elements. After creating the selection, you can go in under Edit, Outline Selection. You can choose how wide and the color of the outline.

PSP X probably has that same function. I'll take a look. Thanks.

I like the original images (the flowers, especially the blue ones) and I like that idea. One complaint - the mums appear oversharped in contrast to the blue flowers.
