I used 2 websites, one drops off the background. The other turns it into an SVG. Then i took it into Illustrator, added the text and fine tuned the dog outlines.

I have been in the forums for two years and this is my collection of different websites and information I have gathered over the last two years. I have everything saved on my iPad

I put this VAST collection together a couple months ago and I share it with new forum members.

If you have any questions on any of the websites go ahead and shoot me a PM.

You will click on my user name and then you and I can share a private message. By the way I am a 53 woman not a man. Jimmy Wayne Westie is my precious West Highland Terrier.

So many people think I am a man because of the name Jimmy Wayne. My name is Elena.

And again your pups are precious!!
