Hmm. This was all I could come up with...and I spent a wee tad too long on it as well.

I know this is off topic, but I am not a very skilled chopper so... can anyone provide some pointers for making an image into a "6 colors only" for something like, oh lets say, a shirt?

I have been using Photoshop 7 mostly, and up until now either paint the colors I want over a selection, or use brightness and contrast adjustments to make the image black. how would I take an existing photo and make it into a six color image?

What I did was to use the Corel Trace program. It is part of the Corel Graphics Suite, similar to Photoshop only not as good or expensive. Anyway, this program allows you to take a bitmapped image and convert it into a vector drawing. You have a lot of control over how the image is converted- I use outlines of each color, I can specify how many colors, how big the individual objects can be, how much smoothing there is, and whether the nodes are smooth or cusps, whether there is noise reduction, etc.
This is the result:

The other way to do it is to convert your image to paletted. You should be able to select a palette type that allows you to change the number of colors. The advantage of this is that it allows you to edit the final colors it uses. I didn't like the dull colors I got with corel trace, so using the palette conversion, I got a version like this:

This image will now Trace to give you the vector version as well, without changing the colors.

You can do this by converting the RGB image to Indexed using 6 colors. (You may want to turn dithering off for a T-shirt.) You then have the daunting task of cleaning the image up.

Convert back to RGB if you must have a JPG or PNG format for the T-shirt company.

EDIT: Ah. I just read Josephus' methods. Indexed and Paletted are the same thing.

Perhaps there is an electric version which would be dual purpose.

I think it works since it is a anti butt/crotch itch etc treatment. Good use of pictures! And a very apt description of apple anyway.

Yeah, I guess the rules are usually optional around here anyway.

It was interesting to find out how to get the text to curl just enough to visually match the object. I love this stuff, so fun to do at work.

I keep saying make the "broad spectrum" read "broad rectum" instead. Adds a nice touch I think.

Mr. wookie,

I'd really rather not touch anyone's broad rectum, no matter how nice.

//shivers at what Google Images might show for broad rectum

Sometimes filters are a blessing.

I meant for the pictures that have the labels saying such would be nice. I don't want to touch one by any means.

You might want to consider why she might associate porcupines with male genitalia ... if it was something you did, it might not be too late for an apology. You probably also want to remain vigilant.

Possibly loosely related to #3. It's a dirty site... so you're warned.
