      Tons of options.

      There is Coyote, which was designed specifically for wood workers, there is GIMP, Inkscape...which will trace your image with multiple scans., Photoshop, Corel.
      I use Serif PaintPlus, or PagePlus, There is also DrawPlus which will trace the image.

      There is Graphic Workshop from Alchemy Mindworks.
      There is Professor Franklin.

      The list is almost endless. Just remember that the software is only a tool and the real portrait is made my modifying the image after is is converted. Not every photo wll work and not every stencil makes a good pattern.

        I would recommend picking up psp and getting kerry_nf tutorial. Andy has put together one also for Adobe photo shop. Not sure if you have any experience with these programs.
