This was my first try and turning a photo into a wood portrait of our son CJ. I used Photo Shop and Coral Draw in order to do this. After many flops, I finally was able (with the help of friends) to accomplish the task and hoping the next time I try, it goes much easier.

I use Photo Shop Elements. Any hints?

Great Job! I often find that the development of your own patterns is more time consuming and testing than the actual cutting. You were able to put the two together very nicely. Like anything the more you do the better you get. I use a free software progam call gimp to do most of my patterns.

John, I tried Gimp, but did not like it very well. I received the Coral Draw with a Wacom Tablet we purchased years ago, and as for Photo Shop, well I bought a 400.00 program with 8 programs with it in order to do my college classes at home. The Coral Draw program is old and I am lucky I can still use my tablet with the Windows 7. lol
