Is there a way, using Gimp, to resize/reshape the palette to only encompass a selected item? i.e. I take a pic of myself and cut out just me and delete the background. How do i make it so there's no white background around me so I can import into a different setting?
If you truly live by the sword, it only stands to reason that someone has to die by it.

You could also just set the background as "Transparency" and paste in just around you (and crop out the background)
