    Default Re: Cutout a portion of a Photo

    i do trace the bitamp, to get the exact outline of it.
    with this path i do a clipview or whatever.
    good bitmap tracer is inkscape. works with copy and paste.

    I hope you solved this, but reading the replies, I'm confused...you want to pull a portion of the photo out? Draw a line/shape over it then duplicate the photo and the shape, then use intersect and subtract. You should get two separate parts right next to each other. Just note that you'll now have a 'seam' to deal with.

    I'm not sure that's what you were after, but your initial questions seems to suggest 'pulling' something out of a photo, like it's scissored...forgive me if I read this wrong.
    lots of my xara-made stuff ends up on my tumblr. NOT ALWAYS SAFE FOR WORK BUT MOSTLY IS

    that results in two 'clipped' photos, because of xara's 'non-destructive' editing that allows you to go back, by unclipping the two parts

    you need to make a bitmap copy so that you have a 'fixed' new photo if you want to use a routine that would just ignore the clipping - eg bitmap tracer
    carpe diem
    carpo vitae

    what I did was what handrawn suggested above. I clipped the portion of the photo I wanted and then made a bitmap copy. This way I could runt the bitmap tracer on just that portion that I wanted.
