I am trying to make my own signature and want to use my own char with that. Now I have made some screenshots and want to cut my char out. The problem is; when I cut it out it, looks all messed up >.< Like rly lame and ye.. :\

I have looked on youtube for various ways to cut out an image out of the background. But with all ways the edges are lame. You can refine edge and they explain how to.. but somehow that does not work/ I fail xD

Many people have cut out their character here on their sig, how do you do it nicely?

As last option i`d cut my image manually with the "lasso" option in Photoshop, but that takes so much time :|

    First thing first.



    Take a screenshot with your character against as uncluttered background as possible.


    Plain colours are best.


    Use something like Photoshop (free 30 day trial) www.adobe.com/go/tryphotoshop


    Use a tutorial like this :


    http://www.photoshopcafe.com/tutorials/refine-edge/refine-edge.htm


    Search Google for more tutorials, using terms like 'photoshop cut out person'




    Failing all that.


    Ask someone to do it for you ^^

    Not sure what programs you have, but I don't have anything fancy. I have paint, gimp and microsoft word. To remove the background I paste the picture into Word and double click the picture. The first option that comes up is "Remove Background" click that and it is pretty self explanatory from there.

    Hope this helps some :)
