When people generally think about using a complex and powerful graphics program such as Photoshop CS2, they expect it to be used to create ads, signs, Web page graphics or retouched photos for magazines. However, there are many less serious uses for Photoshop CS2, such as creating games for your children. One you might create dress up games based on your photos or those of your children. While this might seem like an intimidating project, it is in fact quick and straightforward.



Instructions
1. Load images of yourself and your children onto your computer by copying them from a digital camera or by scanning in printed versions. Also scan in images of clothing that you would like to use for your dress-up game. Save all the images to a single folder on your desktop.
2. Open Photoshop. Select "File" from the menu and choose "New." In the dialog that appears, enter the width and height you want for your cut out dress up doll. Name the document "Paper Doll." Click "OK."
3. Click on the "New Layer" button at the bottom of the "Layers" palette. Go to the tool palette and select the "Pen" tool. In the tool options that appear at the top, set the tool to "Shape Layer" and choose a light beige as the fill color.
4. Use the "Pen" tool to draw out the shape of your doll. This should be simply the body, including the head, torso, arms and so on.
5. Select "File" from the menu and choose "Open." In the dialog that now appears, go to the folder you saved all of your images to. Select one of the images and open it. Right click on the background layer and from the options choose "Duplicate Layer." Select the "Paper Doll" as the "Destination." Repeat this to bring all the images in the folder into the "Paper Doll" document.
6. Go back to the "Paper Doll" document. You will see that all the images from your folder now appear as layers in your document. Click on the little eyes next to the layers to hide all the image layers except one with a picture of you or your child.
7. Select the "Polygonal Lasso" tool from the tool palette. Use it to draw a selection around the head and neck of the person in the image. Choose "Select" from the menu and choose "Inverse." Now hit "Delete" on your keyboard. Use the "Scale" function found under "Edit" to resize the head so it will fit over the head you drew for the doll. Hide this layer and unhide the next one.
8. Repeat step seven to create cutout heads as well as cutouts of the clothing you want to use. Hide all the image layers. Print out the doll figure on card stock. Hide the doll layer and unhide one of the image layers containing either a piece of clothing or a head. Then print a copy of this as well on regular paper. Repeat this to print out one copy of every head and piece of clothing.
9. Use a pair of scissors to cut out the doll and the other images. For the heads and clothing, you want to leave paper tabs that can be folded over to make the head or clothing stay on the doll.
