    Decided to use Gimp and read guides to figure out cropping. Finally got a nice result.

    I will now read guides on adding backgrounds and making an avatar.

    maybe you might want to remove the rest of the shadow on the border of the guy's silhouette?

    otherwise it looks good.

    are you using crude eraser or the free selection tool?

    cuz with the latter you don't run any risks

    Free selection tool.

    I did one with eraser and copy pasting pixels in Paint:-

    how are you using free selection?

    if you go full zoom and go over the entire silhouette border with it, then you invert selection, press delete and your guy will be as clean as he can get.

    That's what the guide said. That's what I did.

    you did it lazily, or there wouldn't be leftover shadows :alice

    I actually thought it would look cool so I left it out. When I cropped it only then did I notice the messed up shadow. :angel

    it would look cool, but if you want to get rid of the text you have to get rid of the whole shadow too, or it looks weird

    i guess you could reconstruct the shadow somehow, but that goes beyond my level
