sihouette an object in an image
If I want to cut out the backgound of an image and leave just the object how best can that be done?

I read in one of the threads to erase it out. Is there a better way?

i'm very new to gimp.

Thanks,
CardGunner

RE: sihouette an object in an image
Well i got it cut out. A lot of erasing. I learned how to use the "fuzzy select tool" to select to the area I want to erase and then hit delete and it will erase all in the selected area.

If you don't want some of the area selected erased then while the area is selected you can erase part of the area by selecting the eraser and eraseing in the selection.

I figured this out half way thru and could have saved me hours.

Can anyone tell me how to now create a shadow in the image???

Thanks,
CardGunner
