Hey everyone.. this is the unedited version of this pic. I'm wanting to chop the two people on the right out of the photo which im having difficulty with because the two girls arms cross paths in the photo.... so i just want to keep the guy and girl on the left and alter the background to something a bit funky... not really sure what. But as i mentioned in my previous thread.. i am new at photoshop and would appreciate some help :) Please feel free to edit away and put your own creative touch to it. (afterall this is the extreme makeover section :P )

Not an easy job to clone out the arm, so the answer maybe to hide it, changing the background should be easier, although the selection of the couple isn't easy, I've done a quick job, and you'll see some imperfections in the selection, I'm just trying to put across ideas to try. ... Jack

Thank you once again for being so kind to spend some time on my photos. :) I really had trouble with cutting the people out.. But I seem to be getting better each day as I muck around with photoshop. I really like your idea for the background and the bordering idea too to cut that girls arm out. So glad I've found a forum like this which caters for all types of skill levels. I'd be pretty lost without it. Anyways hopefully in the coming weeks I may be able to post some quality photos * fingers crossed* hehe
