InDesign or Photoshop? - Adobe Indesign Windows

I am sure you have all seen where in a piece of literature when there is a large group of people with a list of the name of the people in the picture, the person that created the piece created a "outline, or line drawing" of the picture with numbers in the faces of the people to help keep the names in order or help show where people are in the picture. My question is, have any of you done this, and if so how is it done? Thanks for your time Scottb...

    I have. I placed the photo in a tracing layer in Illustrator and drew the outlines with the pen tool. The nubmers were added on a third layer and the tracing layer waqs hidded. Saved as EPS file images linked (not embedded). Names added in my layout.

    WOW! That is a lot of work! I was thinking there would be a program that would trace the image. I am looking at a picture with roughly 75 people in it. I realize all things are not easy!!!! ecspecially if you want it to look nice

    In Photoshop, with a filter called stylize > find edges. You could play around with other filters to simplify the picture, maybe posterize it, and then find edges. Clean it up a bit and its done.

    I don't think anything but my solution will give you acceptable results. Only intelligence and common sense will discern the boundary between shirt and trousers (ignore) and the boundary between two white shirts (draw).

    Yes, it's work. That's what I get paid for.
