    OK, if I have put this thread in the wrong section then please feel free to correct me.

    I really want a nice personal wallpaper on my iPhone that also shows off the screen. I want to use a really nice background, and add some people into the foreground from another photo. In other words, how do I cut people out of one photo, and add them over another photo?

    As you can tell I am not a pro photographer or anything so was hoping there was some free software out there, or even software with a free trial period? I have searched but can't find anything.

    I am using a MacBook Pro btw, but have access to a Windows computer at work if necessary.

    Thanks in advance :D

    well i dont use windows much but i know that is should have a "magic selector" where it auto selects material, say a cutout of a person. if not u can cut out the person using the selector tool and then open a new paint window with the background image and then copy and paste the person in there

    If you're on Leopard you can use preview. On the toolbar click on the arrow next to the select tool and select 'extract shape' and you can drag round the shape you want to extract (in your case the people). Then select all and copy 'n' paste it over the new image.
