Gimp 2 has a freehand selection tool and layers that would make this possible and it's free. click here

Yes I agree with Eric10, GIMP is excellent for that type of thing.

I use for the very thing
lassoo tool etc,.

should find it free now on some cover disks

THE BEST is Photoshop either Version 7 or greater (price is resonable for this version), or Elements - £50 odd. You CAN NOT beat either if you want to do digital enhancements of photos. You will have a learning curve, but that applies to the other S/W mentioned above. David

Don't and cannot ever see PSP being on cover discs again. It been bought by Coral some years ago. You may get a old version off the Net

I do not know the other programmes but if, long term , you get serious about photo enhancing, then it may be an idea to start with David4637's reccomendation of Photoshop (Elements?, latest version) . If ever you upgrade to the complex CS3 or CS4 the main features will be familiar.

It's the definitive photo editing software. The full professional version costs hundreds of pounds, but Photoshop Elements has just about everything that the amateur user could want or need.
