There are tutorials all over the web for this if you google it. That said, I haven't been patient enough to figure it out

Is this supposed to be like Photoshop? Is there a lasso tool? in photoshop you lasso around the image and then basically cut it out like if you had scissors!

add a transparency layer if there isnt one already.
select the background. i usually use colour select or fuzzy select depending on the background.
then simply delete it.

I always have problems with gimp. I actually have started using ACDSee Pro 2.5. It works really well to to crop out the background. The program has a magic wand that makes it really to change the background. Also I love the photo repair section. It allows for cloning and healing of the image, as well! Best of all it is free. Just google ACDSee Pro 2.5

Hope this helps
