I cant use the magnetic lasso tool so what I do is make a new layer then make a copy of the original pic, drag the copy above the blank layer then delete the original back ground then I just erase around what ever I want to cut out,
When your resizing pics like the Alexander one and BJ in the GSP/GSP sig make sure constrain propotions is checked because it will keep you from getting the squiched effect by maintaining the original proportions.
