Hi, I do intarsia and am interested in portrait development as well as other types
of intarsia. I'm now to the point that I would like to develop my own patterns from available pictures. I have photoshop 7 on my computer and I need some coaching as to how I can use this for pattern development. I can understand the 2 color method
(light and dark) by converting to photogray but I get stopped when trying to get involved with 4 or 5 different colors

I can't tell you how to use a computer to develop patterns for intarsia. I'm old school so I hand draw all of my patterns. I do use the computer to enlarge photos to the correct size, then use carbon paper to trace the outlines, then hand draw the details that become the intarsia pattern. As far as the colors that are used , that is pretty much up to each person that does the intarsia and is mostly based on experience and availability of different woods. Anyways , welcome to the forum.
