    Hi All!

    I've got a picture of my daughter that I want to get rid of all of the background, and have only her in it.

    I have attempted to do the laborious task of manually deleting the background, and have, after wasting a few hours, made a complete balls of it!;)


    I'm fairly certain there is photo editing software out there that can do this somewhat simply.

    Is there something free that I can use . . .

    or . . .

    Anyone have the inclination, and software, to do it for me?:D

    Had a little go with it. Haven't got in close to those edges yet. Can do if you want. It's a gif too at the moment, so it's got a transparent background.

    I agree Hewee, don't you just hate him ! :D:D
    Her hair's got no rough edges, how does he do that?
    Is it just lots and lots of time and patience Rhet?
    It's not only good but very professional.
    :)

    heheh thanx Rhett and Moby.

    Moby - Your attempts were far better than mine, but Rockn's is the better of the 2

    rhett - you had me going there, looking twice, cause I never remembered taking that shot!!;):D I'm going to have to agree with hewee and Moby . . . Great job!! What are you using to get such results?

    Moby's and Rockn's are far better than I could ever do, but after seeing Rhett's I am not sure I could ever trust a photograph again. :eek:

    gosh, I'm blushing here :)

    I used Photo-Fantasy to import the head to the image, then Photo suite II to clone and soften the area around her head.

    I think it worked well because both pictures were fairly high resolution so it was easier to work with .

    As far as cropping, I think the photoshop boys may be able to do a better job, I don't have a light pen, and my hand seems to shake a bit using the mouse !

    Perhaps Rockn, Buck, Hewee, Moby or slipe could get it smoother than I. :)..Glad you liked it...Rhett
