Have you heard of fiverr.com? It's a site where people post anything they are willing to offer for $5. It's a fun site to browse, with a lot of junk (like you'd expect) but also some unexpected cool stuff. I took a chance and spent $5 to remove the backgrounds of five photos. I needed to submit them with a black background for consideration in a juried show.
The photos came back in less than 24 hours, and then it was a simple matter of pouring black into the background. I used Gimp (freeware) and it just took a few seconds. I think they turned out great!

Davide from Italy removed the backgrounds. He goes by username "dawidh" on fiverr.com. The site does take PayPal so no worries about sharing credit card numbers. Check it out!
