Editing Photos In Studio For Cutting With The Silhouette

On the Silhouette Plus forum members come on and ask questions of the forum.The questions can be as simple as an explantion of making a Print andCut or as complicated as computer issue. The wonderful minds and thoughtfulness of the group there always comes forward to help new and old Silhouette users. The Silhouette Plus group sure makes being a Silhouetter a lot of fun.

A couple of members on the forum has asked about editing pictures to cut on the Silhouette. Many of the members have wonderful photo editing software which makes this task very easy. For those who don't have this kind of software wanted to know if it could be done in the Silhouette Studio software. The answer is yes! :-) It is a bit more time consuming but the results are nice. I use Photoshop CS5 to do my photo editing but, I wanted those who don't have software like Photoshop be able to change up and edit their photos so, I made another video tutorial to show the process.

If you would like to try out this technique; please take a look at the new videos I posted to YouTube. I actually made tow new videos since another question was asked about setting up to do a decoupage as a Print and Cut. The Print and Cut is one of my favorite features of the Silhouette. It sure has saved me from some pretty achy hands. My hands us to throb after a day of crafting and now the sweet Silhouette does all of the tiny, tedious, cutting work. Woohoo! 

If you would like to take a look at the newest tutorials just click on the links below. Thanks for visitng my blog and Happy Crafting to All! :-)
