Default Unanswered: How do I cut out an image using Paint.Net?

Let's say that I just took a picture of myself in BABV. I save the picture to paint. Then, using Paint.Net, I want to cut out my BABV character to put it on top of a background for my new BABV avatar.

What I am asking is this: How do I cleanly cut out my BABV character? I want it to look neat and clean.

Thanks!

Okay. First, this is in the wrong section. But you already knew that. xD

Second, open up your picture in Paint.NET.
Third, choose the magic wand tool.
Fourth, Sort of at the top, there is a bar that says Tolerance. Choose which tolerance you want, (meaning how much you want removed.)
Fifth, click anywhere on the picture until the place you want removed is highlighted. Click the cut button at the top toolbar. (It's the scissors button.)
Sixth, keep doing that if it doesn't do the whole surface.

Usually, I select a big surface and cut off that, then finish it off by erasing the small parts.

I hope this helped. If you have any more questions, or this doesn't make sense, tell me. :]

All you have to do is press the square image next to the blue mouse. Then select the part you want to have. Press copy in the menu and paste it onto a new blank image.

Use the wand image and click on the background of the image with the character. You'll have to change the percentage levels around, to get the whole image cut.

Go to the wand tool, and under selection mode, click "add to selection" and then keep click solid areas around you, and move the tolerance up if you need to but eventually everything wil be selected.
Or go to a place where everything around you is just one color like sunshine shores and just cut off all the sand color.
Hope i helped!

Oh and that should cleanly cut the background out without you having to do much work!

I had paint for a while, but it got kind of confusing. For all of my images, I use a system called Gimp. It's free for Windows and Mac and is easy to use! You can cut, like you would with scissors, or use the square or circle selection tool. :O)

You need to use the magic pen and click delete or use eraser first then delete

I use GIMP because its much better with transparent it takes colors seriously XD
