    Is there a program out there that does image cutting (freeware) where you can just cut out the image of a photo and paste it on another photo on the computer? I am not talking about "image cropping" or resizing....just photo cutting (like a "scapel" icon where you can cut out the edges).
    Thanks to any of you who knows of any programs that does this. [​IMG]

    do a google search on the work GIMP

    It is a open source Image manipulator that is quite good. You may have to look carefully since most of the hits will involve Unix or Linux operating systems, so maybe search for GIMP and Windows if that is what OS you are using. I use in on Windows 2000 and on Linux (Sun JDS2003-SuSe 7) and Solaris 10, it is a very powerful image program and does have a cutting feature.

    Yup, The Gimp project is a good program even if it isn't the easiest to use.
    We are all assuming that you are using Windows. If you happen to be using a Mac (as I do most of the time, I use both though) The Preview app actually should do what you want.
    I personally use Photoshop but of course it is nowhere near free, though there is Adobe Elements which is a lot less expensive.

    Yes, I agree GIMP is not very intuitive, but very powerful
