My name is Judi and I am new to digital scrapbooking. This is definitly a "learn as you go" process for me as I am somewhat computer illiterate. I would like to know how to make a background transparent as I wish to incorporate some things from my home into my layouts. I have tried to do this in "Gimp" but have not had any success as it takes away some of the image I wish to keep.(particularly if the image has some of the same color as the background). Does anyone know of a simple way to do this, or a program that is not so complicated. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
