But, I have to say, nice cutting! How did you do it? With Paint Shop Pro you have to do it manually (with the mouse draw a line around it)

Or do you actually use Photoshop?

I've used the polygonal lasso in PS. In my expirience it seems the best way to cut a shape. Just make sure to draw short lines to get the shape perfect.

I prefer to use an alpha channel mask myself, just think it gets it much cleaner and it's so much easier imo.

It's where you seperate out all the channels and then make a copy of the one that has the greatest contrast. You then edit this copy via Threshold and fill in the gaps to make an accurate mask with. To make the mask just load this copy as a selection from the select menu. Et Voila.
