How to Cut Out an Image Using the Scissors Select Tool in GIMP

This will show you how to extract a subject from a background (it doesn't necessarily even need to be a "simple" background, as long there are distinguishable edges between the background and the subject) using the "scissors select" tool in GIMP and a layer mask. The example will be going from Photobucket to Photobucket.

This tutorial is image-heavy, to increase the chances of you understanding what I'm talking about. If you are a beginner and can't follow something, feel free to ask for help.
