Photoshopping for an avator

Most of you know what an avator is, but for you Mom, an avator is a computer user’s representation of him/herself, an image, an icon.  I just made one for myself using photoshop elements.  Here I am, larger than life:  cutout2.jpgWant to know how I did it? I found this picture of my new beautiful DIL, Amber, and I.1-11-08-tj-ambers-wedding-163.jpg

I cropped her out, in photoshop, (sorry Amber)  1-11-08-tj-ambers-wedding-163b.jpg

Lastly, I applied a filter, under “Artistic”, then “cutout”

And lastly, I uploaded it to my blog and it was further cropped to fit.
