How can I free-hand crop a JPG image?

Is it true that a JPG file cannot be free-hand cropped? That JPGs are only square or rectangular pictures?

Does anyone know of a utility to accomplish this?

This is kind of a one-shot deal for me, so I'd rather not spend $400.

If I have to convert to another format first, what is the most popular format after a "JPG"?

Thanks.

No it is not true. You can crop jpegs with just about any photo processing software into any aspect ratio you want.

Here is a list of free image processing software:

Hi Strung - Thank you for your fast response.

Do you know which of these apps will allow me to do a free-hand crop?

By a "free-hand crop" I mean taking an outline of a fish and putting him on dry land.

I am working with a JPG image that I have rotated and the background of the JPG is now overlapping on the background primary layer.
