Use the pen tool to draw a selection around the faces. Once done convert that into a selection under the layers palette button to convert. copy and past into a new document or layer.

Can't use any tools on new layer, sign says, layer is empty


You can't heal a transparent layer, there is nothing to heal!
You need to use the heal tool on a layer that has an image in it, try!

How to change back ground color of an image?


Too many varibles ,but I'll give it a try. are there any layers? does the background layer ( the one called background at the bottom of the list in the LAyers palettte) have anything in it? area all the visible layers above the "background" transparent where they are "white"? If this is the case it's much easier than if any of the layers are "white" or some other color- then you need to select out the items you want not to change color, using any number of the available "selection" tools, from the area you want to change color- now that can be a challenge.

I cannot edit my pictures.


When you first open a picture file (particularly an image file you got from the web) it might be locked. Check on the Layers palette to see if you see a padlock symbol like this:
a0f06ae.jpg

If the file is locked it is because it is in "Index color mode" and you need to change it to RGB.
On the menu bar, go to Image > Mode > RGB.
a671f1b.jpg

Your image will still be locked, however, now you can use the Layers palette again to make a duplicate of your image. Click, drag and drop your "Background" layer to the Create New Layer button, like this:
6af76f7.jpg

Now you will have two layers: Background (Locked) and Background Copy (not locked). You can drag and drop the locked layer to the trash can if you want to (you don't need it anymore).

You should now be able to edit the new Background Copy layer freely.

What versions of 'picture it' has the cutout tool


I see you are using Picture It! 10. I just upgraded from 7.0 which had the cutout feature. This one allows you to make a cutout but it is a process.
Here are the directions on the help page:

To create a cut-out:
  1. Make sure the StackThe palette in the workspace that shows the layering order of objects. appears in the workspaceThe grey area that surrounds the canvas..
  2. On the Stack, click the object you want to make a cut-out from.
  3. On the workspace toolbar, click one of the following selection tools:
    • The marquee toolA tool that helps you select part of an object in the shape of a rectangle, circle, or other shape. This tool is useful for cropping objects or pictures to a standard shape. marqueetoolbutton.gif
    • The freehand toolA tool that enables you to make a selection by drawing on the canvas. freehandtoolbutton.gif
    • The Edge FinderA tool that enables you to make a selection by tracing along the edges of an area in the picture. edgefinderbutton.gif
    • The Magic WandA tool that enables you to select areas of similar colour simultaneously. magicwandtoolbutton.gif
  4. On the picture, use the selection tool to make a selection.
  5. On the Edit menu, click Copy. arrowblueright.gif Optional: Switch the background picture.
    1. On the Files paletteThe palette in the workspace that holds all currently opened picture files. click a picture. The new picture is opened on the canvas.
    - or -
    1. On the File menu, click Open.
    2. Locate the picture you want, and then click OK. The new picture is opened on the canvas.
  6. On the Edit menu, click Paste. The new object is pasted on the canvas, and it shows up as a new object in the Stack.

Note
If you paste the new object into the same picture you copied it from, it will blend in with the background picture until you move it or resize it.

Tip
You can soften the selection with the anti-aliasA selection option in which the pixels along the edge of a selection can be partially selected. In most cases this makes the edge of a selection appear smoother. or featherTo soften the edges of a selected area by smoothing the transition from selected to non-selected pixels. option, which helps the new object blend in with a new background picture.

Digital pictures: want to add background with my G2 & Photoshop L


First you need to "cut" kiten out using the lasso tool, the quick selection tool, or the magic wand and delete the remainder of the picture by hitting the delete key, then you can put the picture of the kiten on any backgroud you choose.

Photoshop, separating gray shades


I'd select the different levels of gray, and cut the color out of the picture, then paste it into a new document, using the exact same document and canvas sizes each time, so that you end up with three or four new documents, each with a different level of grey. If you're familiar enough with PS, you can do so by adding four new layers, and simply copy and paste the colors to four separate layers, and just hide all layers except the one you're printing currently. PS will ignore all layers that are invisible when printing. Click the 'eye' icon on each layer so that all of them are hidden except the one you want to print.

Hope this will FixYa!!!

How to delete someone using Adobe Photoshop CS3?


It will depend on the background as to how easy or hard this will be.

Read the help files on using the Cloning Stamp.

First I would cut out the person(s) directly adjacent to the person you want to remove (take your time to get this done accurately - enlarge the view to say 300% - note that you can do sections at a time and ADD to the selections until you have all of the people you want - you only need to do this along the edges of the area that you want to erase the person from - COPY the selection, do not CUT the selection).

Paste this back as a new layer. Slide this to one side.

The reason for doing this is to make the next step easier without having to worry about working up to an edge.

Now working with the background layer:

If the background is easy - use 100%, then blend in by selecting another cloning area of a similar background and use it sparingly at say 25% to make the new area look different from the original cloning area. I would just remove "noticeable" objects - possibly by just selecting a spot and clicking once (doing this as many times as you need to.

If the bacground is difficult - you will need to "construct" the background using the Clone Stamp - for instance, if there is a tree branch that needs to be extended through the new area - you may have to carefully clone it bit by bit until it looks right - don't forget to clone from different areas if the background is trees as trees do not tend to have long straight branches.

When you have done all of this, go back to Layer 1 (the new one you created earlier) and slide this back into position.

Under Layers in the Menu Bar - defringe the image (layer 1) - this will blend it back in better (experiment with the number of pixels). Then flatten the image.
