I decided that I am going to take a whack at designing my own sig. However, I've come on a stumbling block. See, I want to make something kinda like the sig below (made by TheDemonDzko by my request), as in a background with a character in front. Problem is, I'm not sure how to cut a picture (in this case, Shockwave) out. The only method I know if is going to Paint, going to free-form selection, and cutting away pieces, bit by bit. Is there a downloadable program of some kind that can ease this process? Or some other method that I don't know about? Sorry if this is unclear, I will try to explain better if requested. For example: Let's say I wanted this picture without all the white surrounding it so I can place it over a background without it having an ugly frame around it. Again, tell me if I'm under-explaining (or over-explaining, as I have a tendency to do that). And thanks in advance to anyone who can help out.
