Hi everyone. I have a favour to ask.
I need to use Photoshop for a pearler bead craft I want to do. I have tried to download the trial but it does not work.

This is the tutorial for the project I am doing:
http://www.miranda-ail.com/tutorial/tutorial.html
Pretty much I need to photos to be pixelated so that I can make my pearler bead craft.

1. Open the picture that you want to use.
2. Crop it so it's width and height is the same size. (if it's pale use change the contrast so that the colors will be more distinct)
3. Resize it so the pixel size is the same as the peg board. (I used 2x2 peg boards, each 29x29 pegs.) So I resized my picture to 58x58 pixels using bi-cubic resize.
4. Resize it again to about 500x500 using pixel resize.
5. The picture will now look very pixelated but there are still too many colors.
6. Press alt+ctrl+shift+s
7. Choose the amount of colors that you wish to use. (I used 6 for mine)
8. The picture will probably look strange so now you have to change the colors and try them out so that it looks good. Remember that you can only use the colors the beads are.
9. Chop the picture up into 4 equally sized parts (if it's a 2x2 pearler bead). I made red grids to make the navigation easier.

These are the 6 photos I will be using:

I am hoping that somebody knows a way i can do this without photoshop OR somebody with photoshop would be willing to help me out and pixelate these pictures for me. This is a big project, so I would be willing to somehow compensate for the work done.

THanks in advance!!

I can do it, but i'll need to know the dimensions of your pegboard, so i know just HOW pixellated it should be.

Thankyou both!! Let me know if either of you have requests for something pearler bead-ish...

yellowduckie - I've never actually done this before. It was just an idea I had. I was hoping that i'd be better able to make out the features on his face. But thankyou so much for doing that for me!

I can do it, but i'll need to know the dimensions of your pegboard, so i know just HOW pixellated it should be.

olive_juice - my peg board is 29x29 (dots that is... do you need actual measurements)
If possible I was wanting it a little smaller - 22x22 - I wanted them to be coasters. But if you don't think it would look any good the bigger one is fine.

THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU!!


Also I can use other pictures if you think they would look better. I just wanted one of each of the characters.

Oookay, here they are in 22x22. I think the resemblance is there in most, but i wouldn't know courtney cox or jenifer aniston (sp?) from anyone else, looking like they do. They look small because they are so pixelated, so to look at them, just open them on your computer and enlarge.








if you'd like to see them in 29x29, which should give them a little more detail, let me know!
