Creating borders?
Hey everyone, just downloaded Gimp a few days ago and I'm feeling pretty overwhelmed. I'm basically the definition of technologically inept; most the stuff people are talking about in these forums might as well be in a foreign language. Confused

Anywaaay... I'm currently trying to "cut out" pieces of an image. Take this image, for example:
[Image: i-am-rainbow-dash.jpg?w=481&h=276]
All I want is the pony, so that the borders of the image end where the pony's body ends.

Here's something that may be more difficult, but I'm still curious if it's possible. See this image?
[Image: 830px-RainbowDashRainbow.png]
Could I cut out the Pony AND the rainbow with the little sparkles above her? And would it be possible to fuzzy out the lines of the curtain behind the rainbow? If so, then how?

Thanks a bunch for any help! Big Grin

RE: Creating borders?
Wow thanks! Lots of good info there, think I'll give the "Moderately Skilled" method a try (though don't be surprised if I come running back for extra help!). Also, I've been hearing a lot about "vector art." What is it exactly? Is it possible to do with Gimp? I ask because there are galleries of vector art that feature basically exactly what I'm trying to do.

Example:
