 :heeha: Fantastic idea Germa! I wonder if any of my programs will do that...  :think:   I cringe every time I print out a photo as replacing the cartridges is very difficult here....and expensive!  :cost:    :faint:

Printing pictures uses up a lot of toner!  That's how come I was using clear plastic sheets while waiting for toner to arrive in the mail.  I need a photo software  program for dummies if you know of one.

I use paint shop pro, but the free paint.net does the trick too, open an image => effects => stylize => outline

Wow, Germa.  I tried it.  Really cool.  I can see making a customized kid's coloring book using this.

Oh, for others wanting to download this:  I went to paint.net but that is a paint company.  They do redirect you to getpaint.net which then sends you to the download site.

I did the outline for a bird of paradise (streletzia).  Hope to paint it later this weekend.

Thanks so much, Germa.  I'll play more with the site when I get a chance.

Now I have found this wonderful tool, I started lining up all the photos I've wanted to paint/draw...... my computer has decided to shut down and not start.... again! Oh well, I'll keep trying it and maybe it will start up again this week.  :crazy2:   Meanwhile...I just have to 'adopt' Lloyd's for a few hours a day. Only problem there is all my photos are on the other drive. I'll pull out some of my old drives...maybe find something there.  ^-^

Germa, I guess I lost interest in playing with computers when I used to manage a computer office. All I wanted to do was run away!  :run:     :2funny:
