Will eventually catch on.
Wolf pal ... what I would advise is to do is practice cutting images out from their original backgrounds. This can take many hours of trial and era but it's really worth the effort.
Different programs have different ways of achieving this result. "Corel Knockout" is pretty easy to use and has some great results.
PS and Gimp have some great plugins to also "knock" images out from their backgrounds.
I've done a few quick examples using Corel PhotoPaint's" "Cutout lab" feature to show these examples, but once you've tried some of these effects a few times it does become allot easier.

*edit*

I made a basic "cutout lab example" video (best viewed full screen)... of how quick and easy (with practice) ... it can be done



I hope this helps a bit
PooMan, that is great little tutorial. I had no idea how you guys were doing those images. I use Gimp and I will download the plug in and try this myself.

Thank you.

I agree with you, Carl
It was a time two months ago when I didn't have any idea about using Photoshop or GIMP . I started with those as per the directions of Anthony and Gladson, Each and everybody here helped me to learn the programs ... either technically or emotionally .

But it is PooMan UK ... Nick ... who trained me, and still now training me. To me he is a teacher And I try to follow all his directions and suggestions , to improve myself

Thanks a lot
But I am wondering about your sig size . You should be Seven Pro ( more than 60 days of registration and 600+ rep) and you should get it 600x200 pixels or 146 kb whichever is minimum .... still it is too small

Why dont you contact Shawn in this regard ? It should be fixed permanently
