Is it possible to somehow draw a polygon or a free-form region in Paint.Net and later select what's inside it? If so, how? (Other than using the Rectangle Select capability.)

A note: I have no clue about the use of layers. If the solution involves layers, I would really appreciate it if you could break down the steps involved. (I want to learn layers, but somehow have never learned basic the conceptual building block necessary for understanding it.)

+1 thank you for the link. to be honest, stackexchange places are my first go-to place. but I will check it out. thanks again. – Sabuncu Apr 25 '13 at 16:23
Could you also suggest a tutorial on the fundamentals of layers use? Thanks again. – Sabuncu Apr 25 '13 at 16:28
Off hand I don't know of any, but I'm sure you can find lots if you search the net. Most of the examples might deal with popular programs such as Photoshop, but I guess the basics should be the same. – Karan Apr 25 '13 at 17:34
