how to shape photos?

I am new to digital scrapbooking so I was wondering how I can make a photo into a particular shape?

What software do you use for your scrapbooking, Morgan?

Right now I use gimp and picmonkey

I'm sorry, I'm not familiar with either of those software programs, but hopefully someone who is will jump in and answer your question.

Morgan ... you need a clipping mask .... I use PSE but here are some tutorials for gimp ... which are all over the web if you search ....

There are lots more too ... I just searched clipping masks in gimp ... it does not come with the software itself like it does with photoshop but can be done
