I want to remove the lines outside the image.
and then have the background white, and the image black.
Basically a cameo view of a black dog on a white background.
Thanks.

I like GIMP, though paint may work for you too. GIMP is more like Photoshop, plus its free - I would look into it.   :)

You should be able to clean the picture up nicely with it.

Let me know.

ok, I downloaded it. The ways to use it, look just as difficult as Paint.

I was unable to locate the proper "actions" on Paint.

no luck using GIMP.
It shows pencil but erases the blue-green color.
Then switch brush and it starts adding the blue green to the white areas, already changed.
Using brush and hard black line but get no lines.

Looks more complicated than paint...any one got instructions on either

Paint.Net http://www.getpaint.net/

Artweaver http://www.artweaver.de/

Either of those should be capable enough.  Artweaver might be a little complex.

Remove surplus lines with eraser tool.
Ensure lines for dog are closed.
Fill interior of dog with black (flood fill).
Fill exterior around dog with white (flood fill).

I'll try again with paint. I'm not finding the tools, that easy to use. The eraser is inside a curcle (I think)(or maybe that was with GIMP) and it is hard to be precise in the action, especially in the corner of a triangle and the eraser is inside a circle, and the circle is covering up what you need to see, to be able to erase.

I'll try to find a better photo of a dog cameo (do need outline only) so editing is not needed, or at least limited.

since no one knows how to use paint, I'll close the question. I found a suitable replacement photo.
