Icon Question  
You know those icons where the subject has been cropped out and put with a cooler background? well i kinda suck at those. anyway, my question is....is there an easy way to crop said image out or is it just one of those pain in the ass things that you have to do with your 'tools'?

If there's an easy way to do it, I don't know about it yet. It takes me forever to do it, and yes I use the "tools". I used to do it more often, when I had more patience. XP

It depends on how simplistic your original icon's background is. If it is simple, it could just be a matter of setting the fancy background on multiply/color burn/whatever and erasing the obvious bits on your person. If it isn't simple, you can either make the background simple using smudging, blurring, or any other tool you want or just leave the fancy background on normal and erase/mask the obvious parts that cover the object.

IDK. It is very much a trend right now and I... you don't need to do that to be popular. :P
