Doesn't Gimp have something lik a Pen tool, to create a path and use that to cut out your figures or whatever you want.

Its far more faster and preciser then the Eraser tool.

Another tip would be to look for something like a Layer Mask, its called like that in Photoshop, no doubt Gimp must have a similair option.


I see more people found the filters, I'd suggest to take your pictures to higher level and only apply filters on certain parts.

Just using a filter on a picture is 2 seconds of work...
Then again we all have to start somewhere

EDIT: To bad I only have Photoshop else I would've offered some help

The sig pic's are really good! BTW I'm gonna make a sig for myself, and I was wondering how to make something face the other way. I need some Hammerheads for it. Here's what I've got so far:

To face it in the opposite direction, use the layer invert selection. I'm gonna make something as well.

Carsew, I'm gonna be honest. I like your sig but it's to big, and doesn't really look that much like a signature.
