Is there a way to turn a photo into a silhouette? If so is there a tutorial anyone knows of?

I found a few video tutorials, Nancy. Hope they are what you meant by a silhouette.

Just a quick way (if I'm understanding correctly) open the image, go > Image > mode > Grayscale - then adjust to your wishes - Colors > curves and/or Levels.

Right on! RJKD. I concur with RJKD, make sure the object or person is on a transparent background. Otherwise you will have a totally black image.
