Tips, help, criticism..

I just started doing graphics in Photoshop and I have a few questions for those who have the answers.

First of all, Is there any easy way to cut images? I've played with the Magnetic Lasso, Magic Wand, etc, I have only found difficulties. I do not think I fully understand how to use them yet, as I don't think it should be such a problem.

Next question is about creating Renders. I have seen many cool looking backgrounds and such that people use. I am wondering exactly how do they make these? Now, I have a few sets of brushes and all this, but I cannot seem to find a wide variety of them. I am using Photoshop 7 and each time I look for brush sets I often get the "Wrong version of photoshop" message. If someone could link me to a site that can offer many good brush sets for Photoshop 7, I would really appreciate it.

Last thing is I will leave a few examples of what I have done.. Please give a lot of constructive criticism. I am learning from simple online tutorials that tell me to "use Magnetic Lasso", yet do not explain how the tool is used correctly, etc, etc, so all the feedback is definitely welcomed.





Not sure if I like this one or not.. I basically used this one to look around at all the cool filters(wow, there are many, how am I supposed to remember which ones do what?).



I am using this one until GSP/Penn II is over. This is the one that so difficult trying to figure out how to cut the images. Seriously, help on this would be nice. (Thanks to Steph for telling me the background color on the forum).

Well, that is all.

Thanks for all help that may be presented to me here, I am very greatful.
