This particular video was helpful because I was able to replace the background with a different color. It’s a start. This video led me to this new tool:
Paint Bucket Tool – This is one of the main features that helped me add a background. Basically this thing is like a splashing a bucket of paint onto the image, just like it says. First you have to set the foreground color. This can be found in the lower left corner of the screen.
Clicking the foreground color opens up this screen:
Then you select the color you want. After that you use the paint bucket tool and click the area you want to paint over.
The end result was this:
I added a grey background because it looks a lot cooler and sleek. it gives a more refined look to it.
So I’m still sifting through things. The video I found was especially helpful. Not the best, but it was helpful. I still have a lot to learn though.
