Talking Anyone familiar with Gimp? Please help me:)

Hi. I've heard so much about Gimp that I finally decided to download the program and give it a try. Problem is I don't know how to get my background of my pictures white. I want them to have that professional look but just can't seem to figure this program out. It took me an hour just to figure out how to put my picture on the pad. Please, any advice would help. Thanks so much.

I've never tried Gimp, but since I want to do the same thing... I looked for some tutorials:

www.gimp.org/tutorials/Changing_Background_Color_2/

http://alaynacreations.blogspot.com/...from-your.html

www.photo-info.co.nz/articles/removing-image-backgrounds-gimp

www.photonur.com/changingphotobackground.htm

www.wikihow.com/Remove-a-Background-Using-the-GIMP-Paths-Tool

http://blog.thembid.com/2007/08/24/r...y-in-the-gimp/

...and lots of videos!

Hope that helps! I'm going to download it myself and try these out.
