Step 1: Giving your Kids The Tron Treatment.

Step 1, have kids. If I need to tell you how to do that, then you probably have more to learn than I can teach so on to step 2.

Step 2,
I have an 8 year old and a 5 year old. We all love Tron Uprising. So we decided to play. The thought occured to me that I could make these kids look like Tron.
First off I'm no photographer, I did the best I could.
Start by dressing your kids in the tightest black outfit you've got. Then using painters tape, either blue or green, tape out some circuit lines. I used a few screen shots from Tron Uprising for inspiration.
Then take some pictures. For the discs I used my son's captain america sheild but you can use whatever you have on hand.

Step 2: Remove the Background

After the photoshoot, port those pictures that you like into photoshop and then we can get started.

First pick a good picture, use the crop tool to cut out the rest of your living room that doesn't touch your kid.
Then goto the layers tab to make your image a layer 0. Do this by double clicking on it and hit enter.
Now use the lasso tool to begin to cut away the rest of your living room.
Tip: When using the lasso tool I find it comes out a bit better if you cut a few pixels into the person that you are keeping on screen. That way the edges are smoother.

You should really use the finished image as your introduction image, to properly "sell" the concept.
