After that you should insert the extracted figure on an empty canvas and paint the canvas the colour you want. Then you can use the polygonal lasso tool to select the area around the person you would like to keep and once you have selected it, invert your selection and delete the rest of the background. Also, make sure the colour layer is behind the layer with the picture of the person. Hope this all makes some sense It was a bit difficult to explain without screencaps...

As for the second question, I am not exactly sure what you mean. Are you interested in the shadow or the colours of the whole picture?
Thank you! It worked!

Also, I was referring to the colors of the picture.

I moved your post to the tutorials thread In the future if you have any PS questions, please post them here. You can also find quite a few tutorials on the first page.

As for your question, I would do it with the pen tool (although if you are a beginner it may be easier to use the brush tool). If using the brush tool I would create a new layer over the picture layer and just draw the lines. If you need more precise instructions I can make a little tutorial for you in a few days

I mainly use the Flash format to make screensavers, but you can make banners, avatars or whatever you want quite easily (if you then can actually use a Flash file as an avatar on a forum is a different matter). But you canīt make Flash files in Photoshop, so you need to learn a new program to be able to make Flash animations (i use a really old program called Macromedia Flash MX).
Got it! I'll try to have them in Flash format with the program you suggested Thank you very much!
