When I make these, taking stock photographs and using the lasso selection tool
in CS4, I have an option by right clicking on my selection and choosing
'feather' which softens the edges of the selection and makes it look less like a
simple cut out. Does anyone know how to achieve the same result with Gimp?
Select the lasso (actually, any) selection tool in GIMP, check the "feather" and possibly "antialiasing" checkbox(es), then make your selection. You can adjust the amount of feathering; the feathering will approximately bridge the selection line, so the selection will include roughly r/2 pixels outside the line and r/2 inside, where "r" is the feathering "Radius". The number "r" can be as small or as large as you like, in tenths of a pixel.
