2. Go back to PSP and using the Freehand Tool, Feather - 1 , Antialis Checked, surround the index finger like shown below !

Selections, Copy and Paste As New Image..Put it aside for now !



3. Hit the Delete Key...Selections None..

4 Select the Clone Tool and clone the area where the finger was so when we bring it up

to tap it,,you will not see the white area underneath...

I did not completely fill in the area, but if you want to.....its fine !

5. Now, go back to the finger put aside and copy and paste it as new layer and fit it

just right into the hand !
