Can you cut around a person's face or body & add it into a separate picture? NOT in a rectangular shape, but actually cut AROUND the head or body.

    Yes, there are a number of selection tools available in Photoshop Elements. You can make rectangular or circular selections, but you can also freehand draw a selection with the Lasso tool, draw a straight edged shape of as many sides and complexity as you like with the Polygonal Lasso tool, or trace your object with the edge detecting Magnetic Lasso tool. Additionally, you click an area to have all similar surrounding material (such as skin) also be selected with the Magic Wand, you can paint the specific areas you want with the Selection Brush, or you can more freely paint and have similar areas, detecting the edges, with the Quick Selection tool. But this only scratches the surface, as there are additional tools to help you modify your selection once you have created it.
