Step one: Crop out the boy


       -Erase background with Eraser, requires precision but efficient

       -Magic wand on background, adjust the Tolerance for best selection, erase the rest


Step two: Install Silhouette Plus Plugin

Alternate method (no plugins involved)

Step 1: Cut out the kid with this method: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/13796-cutting-out-images/


Step 2: Use the brightness/contrast adjustment twice at -100 brightness


Step 3: Use Median (Effects>Noise>Median) at a small radius to smooth out the edges
