Help with editing a photo & what free software to use

Hi,

I have a group photo that i want to edit and remove the other people in the photo. Is there any free photo editing software out there that will allow me to take part of the back ground to cover over the person so the picture blends and doesn't look edited. Or is there another way of doing this. Sorry i am new to this and have never edited a picture before so any help would be appriciated.

Thanks guys and gals

Editing software

I'd recommend Gimp. Gimp has all the function Photoshop has but is free. There are manuals on the internet to give you an introduction to using the software. You can download it for free and it does not take much space on you computer. It is the best free editing software I know of, since it has so many features. Try and enjoy it!
