Brett445 Posted October 18, 2007 Share Posted October 18, 2007 Hi everyone I wonder if someone could spare some time to help me out? I started using paint this morning for the first time so I'm struggling along. I have an image of a girl jumping in the air and the background is an all blue sky. I wanted to cut the girl out and get rid of the background. I found a tutorial online talking about how to use the magic wand to remove a background so I though I was ok but the whole exercise worked in reverse. I opened the pic and magnified up to 400 then hit the magic wand button and set tolerance at 31 (whatever that means - the tutorial did that). Then I moved the magic wand next to the girl and clicked and the whole outline of the girl was outlined with a moving border - so I thought 'great', it's going to cut her out for me. I didnt know what to do next so ( I think) I went to edit and clicked cut. The girl disappeared and the background remained- the exact opposite of what I had wanted. I have attached above the original pic and the result of my attempt. Can anyone help? Cheers Brett Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
