In GIMP, I learnt to cut out image from background and put them in one common background. But its not neat
What tool did you use?
In GIMP most of the times I use free select tool and for that you have to select the area/figure you want to cut little by little. That won't be perfect but still close to that. Then right click on the cut out image layer and select "alpha to selection".
Then click on "Select" option that you can find on the taskbar in the GIMP window where your image is.
Select >> "shrink" >> a mini window will open asking how much do you want to shrink your image >> select "1"
then click on select again >> "Invert"
and then carefully use an eraser tool to wipe off any excess.
Try doing that, I will soon update a tutorial (probably a video one
) on how to cut out a png figure from an image
