Render the part of the image you want to silhouette and make a new layer with the render on it. Go to the layer>blending options>Color overlay>Black>Opacity 100%

Cutting a person or object out of a picture. For example, I rendered the splinter cell figure in your sig then added my own background, the render is the figure.

There are several ways of doing it.

You could use the eraser tool and carefully go around the image, which takes a long time but sometimes it's necassary on a very low contrast image.

If the figure you want rendered is in very high contrast to the background, you can probably use the magic wand tool.

If it's in between, click ctrl+alt+x and your image will be in a new window where you can roughly outline the figure and fill it with the tools provided, and it'll cut the image where it detects changes in contrast. Once this is done, fix up the flaws around the image with the eraser tool.

When I'm using PP11, I just color Fill on 'Screen' mode.

Make a couple copies and do color burn on all of them. That's what I do in PS 4 elements, I don't know what you have though.
