Cleaning up photo taken in a museum
I would be grateful if anyone could guide me to tutorials/tips on how to clean up photos taken in a museum.
i have a load of photos in which the sculpture i was intrested in was inside a glass display.This resulted in glares,reflections etc on the photos.
What i am looking to do is :
1.extract the image of the sculpture from its background and replace the old background with a white background so that i can label it individually,

2.remove the glare/reflections etc and anything to make it look better.

here is the link to one of the images:

any help much appreciated.
TIA

Ofnuts,thanks for your reply.

As you would have guessed from the photo and the date stamp on it I am pretty much a beginner in photography.

Quote:1) remove the reflections and 2) extract the foreground.

Could you tell me how I would go about doing this? I am willing to put in the hours as it will help me learn GIMP as well.

kind regards
