    This is quite a tricky operation unless you know what you are doing and have practised a bit. Look up some tutorials for your software (eg Photoshop). Put simply what you need to do is to "select" the figure then cut them or the background out. The devil is in details like cutting out round hair and fancy clothes and stuff. Doing it roughly / crudely is easy. Doing it well takes practise.

    Edit: Professional photographers / graphics folk do this a lot.

    with some photoshop skillz.


    use the magnetic lasso tool to cut around your body, then just select and drag it onto another background. or just blur out the background or something, i doubt anyone will care, good luck!
