Tracing/cutting an image

Recommended Posts

Ordinarily I would direct you to use http://www.searchpaint.net to find this answer, but search is temporarily bogus since we moved to this new site. :oops:

There is a tutorial in the Tutorials section called "Cutting out images the easy way" or words to that effect...that gives a detailed way to do this. Paint.NET doesn't have a trace tool (yet? In fact, I'm not even sure what that is :)) but this tutorial should be able to help you out.

Can't seem to find it at the moment, but I'll look again and let you know. Welcome! :D

There is no 'trace tool' in paint.net.

So you either do it this way viewtopic.php?f=15&t=4841 and then just put it on your new background.

Or you use the eraser tool and erase everything you don't need in the picture and then just add your new background (import from file, then move that layer down under the other one). I hope this makes sense.

You could use the lasso but it's easy to mess up that way.
