The iPod-Style

Step 1: I started off with a picture of my idiot brother, Samir. Don’t think he even knows what an iPod is.

Step 2: Use any of your selection techniques to select the image. Does not have to be a perfect selection since its gonna be like a silhouette. I used the Magnetic Lasso (L)

Step 3: After selection, Create a new layer (Ctrl+J) and fill it with black (Shift+F5). Let's call it Sil.

Step 4: Go back to your background layer and press (Shift+F5) and fill it with a colour you desire. Pink?

Step 5: Select the ‘Sil’ layer and go to Filter > Sharpen > Unsharp Mask. This will give it a good contrast.

Step 6: You can stop there or, go to the apple website and get the picture of the iPod. Resize it after pasting it there (Ctrl+T to transform).

Step 7: Then, if you have the time and expertise you can use the pen tool to draw the wires for the headphones, but I used the basic brush tool.

If the brush tool results in jagged edges, simply go to Filter > Stylize > Diffuse with a setting of Anisotrophic.

After softening it up (apply diffuse four –five times) use the Unsharp mask filter on them. Note, that to use this the wires must be drawn on a separate layer.

Step 8: Run for ten minutes and check out the image!

If there were any difficulties don't hesitate to ask. Thanks.

Well I did want to use the Pen Tool but many users are not familiar with its uses to I thought I'd make it more like "what is easily possible" kinda thing.

Actually even the selection isn't perfect. I'm sorry I slacked...
