    You need to get some editing software. Adobe photoshop elemants is the best for non-professionals

    photoshop willb e best but you can change simple things on [url]www.picnik.com[/url] but depends what you want to do with the background really

    PS - i'd recommend Photoshop if you are planning on enlarging.

    if i were u i would pm "predikuesi" i think he would be good at this kind of thing

    Photoshop is probably one of the best for advanced stuff, i've heard Gimp is ok for basics too.

    i would like for the background to be plain or would it look silly,i know nothing about things like this and what can be done but i would prefer it if u coulnt see my partnerts top in the background

    That shouldn't be too hard I'd imagine it would be a simple cut around and then paste onto a new layer which would be the white background and maybe a little touch up with the healing tool.

    Other thing you can do is get someone to lightly blur the background which will then make the picture of your baby more focused

    Depends on what sort of background your after I always have a problem with hair, as you can see

    Max - I think that's about as good as you can get the hair.:thumbsup: I've just been having a go - you chose a much better background colour than I did. I think, if you don't mind me saying so, that it would be better if the bottom section was removed - cropped to where the little one is being held, so that the background colour triangle goes.

    Very easily, I have just re installed windows so let me put Paint shop Pro back on and i'll give it a go

    I did try that but it seemed to end up a bit like a passport photo & i think he's a bit young to go traveling :thumbsup: , here's my last effort

    The first pic has the top of the head edited in and a different background

    Picture 2 & 3 just show different ways of taking the emphasis off the top of the head

    Fourth, just a different background

    These are only quickly pictures, if you like any of them let me know and I'll spend the time making sure it's perfect for you

    hi again i like the 3rd one and i also like the first pic that max cody did but was wondering if the bottom half of the pic could be cropped?
    if anyone has the time i would like a couple more looked at or views on which is the best pic for a gift?
