    Well, it depends entirely on the background and the image. I could give it a shot.

    Would you have a better quality picture? The picture is grainy and the lighting gets in the way - the better the original image, the better the edited product will look.

    And hey, of course, don't mention it.

    (paint could be used if you're on a pc with no installing permisions (aka school pc's) but it would be a hell of a job....)

    sorry, this is the one i have. ive deleted the original. i have a Samsung galaxy S3, the damn thing takes a picture like a potato. i dont think the original would have been any better sorry.


    I tried to do it with Gimp... But it was bad.

    Would you be able to take another photo in a better lighted environment?

    Take a better pic against a solid color that's different from your skin, hair and clothing. Hang a sheet if need be and use even lighting, so you don't get any shadows. Then it will be as simple as using the magic wand tool in Photoshop or gimp. Otherwise you'll need to zoom in and use the lasso tool to remove the background. As has been said before the better quality the original image the better the final product.
