    Looking for freeware to manipulate picture into a heart. Actually I would like to just take the picture and cut into heart shape for my new web page Im making. I don't want to fill....
    Jasc paint Pro does not have this shape under their per shape section and that is the only program I have available to me right now.
    I don't have a program on my laptop to perform this action....

    The GIMP will do just about anything PS will do.
    Prepare to spend some time learning, but I created a crude heart-shaped image in about a minute.

    can you get a heart picture shape
    then in PSP you can add this picture as a layer to the one you want to manipulate
    use selection tools to draw around the heart and then use that selection on the layer your picture is on...
    should be simple to do
    otherwise THE GIMP as suggested

    this version should use photoshop type commands

    I would like to try GIMP but I can't seem to get a clean install. I keep getting an error.

    I guess I will go back and try PSP and follow the above.
