Move the hand along each step you are on so you don't lose track:

My Color Chart.  Save to your C drive.

1.  New image 100 x 100.

2.  Your going to have to zoom in to about 1000.

3.  Complete your outline like mine below.  Remember if there is no number associated with the pixel then its 1 pixel or 2 pixels.

4. After you complete your outline right click and copy it.  Start a new image 50 x 50 and paste as a new layer so that it is in the center of your working canvas.  You can close your original outline now.

5.  Save the new outline as a PNG save so that you can use it again if you choose to do so.
