I have a picture with me and my parents, and I am trying to paint the background white and then put a new background in, similar to the backgrounds from professional photos. I am doing this in paint.
I am having two problems with this, first of all I'm finding it a bit difficult when painting areas next to the body. Is there a better and/or easier way to do this, or a better program (that is free).
Secondly, if I eventually do finish the painting the background white, I have a good suspicion that when I try to put the image on top of my chosen background, the parts that I painted white in the original image will just cover the new background, if you follow my line of thought. Any suggestions to overcome this.
