Smart way of extracting objects through GIMP
Hi,

I am new Gimp user and this software is very impressive. I am really linking it! Besides, in this forum I already found impressive support to my first questions as well!

I am trying to migrate to Gimp some tasks I am familiarized to do with Corel PaintShop. I couldn’t find yet an easy way to extract objects with precision and without hard-work. Follow bellow the way PaintShop works on it (you tube links). May anyone tell me how (or recommend any tutorial) about smart ways of extracting objects through Gimp?

Depends a bit what you want to extract cut/out. For a rather automated way check the foreground selection (Foregroundselect). Selecting an animal across the blue sky is easy for all software. I'd like to see the same giraffe in front of foliage Smile

RE: Smart way of extracting objects through GIMP
I made initial tests and the foreground selection seems to bring good results. I will make more intensive tests. I found a extensive tutorial in youtube about this tool:
