My Gf took a selfie with my aunts kitten while it was yawning. It looks vicious. Id like to add a cool background to it other that the couch so i can put it on a poster but my graphic editing skills are atrocious. Anyone have any ideas?

Graphic editing can be time consuming and difficult but worth experimenting with. Another way might be to treat this as a simple craft project :

1) Colour photocopy printing services are usually easy to find and not expensive. Obtain a good quality xerox colour copy of your photo...say A3 or A4 paper size.

2) Go to a craft supply shop and get some removable double sided tape, fine pair of scissors and a nice sheet of paper or a picture for the background. 

3) Carefully cut the kitty out - be sure to maintain the spikey fur around the edges.

4) Now you only need a couple of pieces of the double sided sticky tape to simply position the kitty on the background.

5) Finally get a full page colour photocopy of your finished masterpiece. Either laminate or frame the copy and/or original.


Good luck ! :)

Fluid Mask to take out the background and Serif PhotoPlus to crop the image.




Not convinced its an image worth using though !
