Introduction: Andy Warhol Computer Art.

This is kinda like my stencil instructables, it does require the use of word and paint,but you can use photoshop too. If you don't have these applications then I am sorry I am just using the school's computers. You can apply this to printed out paper. But I think it looks cool.

Step 1: Get a Photo

Get a photo from anywhere and save it or copy it. I used Seven of Nine because she is hot.

Step 2: Put Photo Into Word

Open word and place photo into it document using paste or import.

Step 3: Make a High Contrast Photo

Using the photo toolbox click color and choose the black and white option. After that play with the brightness and contrast buttons to get the desired photo.

Step 4: Open Paint and Make a Background

Open paint and make a background that you want.

Step 5: Copy and Paste the Photo

Copy the photo from word and paste it in paint. MAKE SURE THAT THE TRANSPARENT OPTION IS ON, it is on the left of the screen below the oval tool (sorry the notes don't work on school computers.)

Step 6: Finish

save as a jpeg and enjoy. I set mine as a background.

If everyone commented on every good instructables they saw the would never leave the computer. There are more good instructables than bad plus most people that coment on the bad ones are trying to be constructive and help.

SAVING A BITMAP TO JPEG CAUSES HORRIBLE DISTORTION. YOU CAN FIX THIS BY MAKING IT A VICTOR IMAGE. ALL OF THIS AND MORE CAN BE DONE EASIER, AND FASTER THROUGH GOOGLE'S PICASA. PLUS, ITS FREE!

I take it to the next step and print it on Transparency Film, put it on my over head projector and blow it up to paint a 4 foot by 6 foot painting. I use that wood that is like peg board without the holes in it - at Home Depot for $6 for a sheet of 4' x 8'.

This is great for the photoshop-lacking. Neat idea -- I didn't even know you could do that in Word!!
