Cut out a figure from complex background in Gimp

It's hard to believe that it was only a month ago that I posted my Elevator Pitch demos post in which I suggested that very short Youtube demos, like an elevator pitch compared to a full presentation, might have a special appeal to people. Since then, I have produced fifteen of these short videos (plus a longer one for the Crystal Coex story) averaging under two and a half minutes. Those videos have accumulated 2500 together with momentum growing all the time. Several have been on Gimp 2.8, the FOSS image processing software which is roughly comparable to Photoshop. Others are on the Midas Rich Text LSX, CoexLinks, Notes 9 and general rich text topics. I expect more of all of those in the future, but I think the concept has been validated. People like short and sweet videos.
My latest among the Gimp 2.8 mini-lessons is below, but you can see the whole playlist at Gimp 2.8 mini-lessons playlist..
