Does the GIMP have anything like Photoshop's polygon lasso tool? I've
found this tool extremely useful. It's like the GIMP's free select tool,
but it allows you to select an arbitrary polygonal selection area by
clicking out the points the way you would for a path. It's essentially
the freedom of the free select tool with the precision of the rect
select tool.

Also, does anyone know an easy way to make word balloons? In Photoshop
this could be easily be done by selecting an oval area (ellipse select),
union that with a triangular selection (polygon select), then convert to
path and stroke.
