p.s. sorry I missed a two spots between the gentlemen's arms and bodies...

p.p.s. in case anyone is wondering I did these with GIMP which is free, no need for photoshop

These are all great!

Wish I could figure out how to do that with GIMP. So far, I'm not having much luck, guess I need to practice a whole lot more!

Tools > Selection Tools > Intelligent Scissors

use those to trace around the object you want by clicking points and it will intelligently draw the line between the two points. IE click the bottom of the leg and then the bottom of the shorts and it draws the line along the leg. Once you have traced them all out hit enter, this selects the section.

From there control C to copy it to clipboard. Open up background image in Gimp and then control P to paste it in. Once inside the new image to resize you can right click the pasted object > layers > scale which brings up a popup to resize the object you just pasted.

When done resizing right click the pasted object and select Anchor Layer. Then export to JPEG
