Default Croppin Question

Does anybody know how I can crop an exact outline of an image in a photo, say a person, without using a free form cropping tool or the usual straight line crop tool? I want to crop the exact image of a person to copy into another photo.

Thanks,

Difficult to explain, but I paint a wide roughish line around the person or object, then use the magic wand tool on the line to cut out the whole. Once you have the painted thick line, it's a one click process for the wand. Needs a bit of tidying up afterwards for those stray pixels, but easy enough with practice. Good luck!

Everton, download Adobe Photo Deluxe Home edition, there is a free version, not trial. I got free with my 1st digital camera back in 2001. Its old software but works magic.
Click Get & fix photo, choose the pic of the person you want.
click special effects
click collage
click remove background
trace round the person you want to keep
click remove background
load pic you want saved person to add to
edit ,resize,and fit person into new background, like this
The software is circa 1999 but works great for me.
Hope this helps

Thanks for the offer JT. It was for a prank but I've missed the opportunity now. Appreciate the offer though.
