    How exactly do some folks make patterns?

    Like someone gives them a picture or something and they take that image and make it scrollable.

    I've got Adobe Photoshop CS 2 on my computer, but Im not exactly the best at using it...

    Are there any very simple ways of doing something like this? Like some kinda program I can download or something that makes the process somewhat simple?

    Thanks for any and all information that can be provided.

    Coyote software from Carving Technologies simplifies the process of making portrait style patterns.
    You can also look online for lessons on your Photoshop program.

      After totally over-thinking this, I have decided to go ahead with the Micro Mark Saw. It will enable me to do everything I can imagine in my limited space and budget.
      I thank everyone for offering advice, and I look forward to receiving more. As soon as I get it and set it up, I will post pictures...

      Figured it out. The photos were Live and I had to edit them. As you can see, we were quite lucky they didn’t come crashing down in a storm. The last picture was a 2 trunk tree. My son already split a truck load today.

      Next project, the roofer next week. Yippee....

      Betty, I just tried a test, using a standard jpeg file. I clicked "upload attachments", then selected the photo I wanted to upload, then double clicked the photo, and it uploaded without a problem. Go figure!

      When I try to upload pictures, why is there an X next to upload attachments? I hate computers.
