Is there any software, preferably free, that I could use to change the photo to remove people from the picture and add people into the same picture please?

I am aware that some versions of Adobe Photoshop uses layers to achieve this but I can't afford the price tag for Photoshop.

Do you have any suggestions please?

TIA

I use the free PhotoFiltre, (http://photofiltre.en.softonic.com/) which has a clone stamp tool (http://jeffagogo.com/?p=315) (tutorial) for erasing objects.

Gimp if you have the time to learn it is almost as powerful as photoshop. for simple fixes I often just use the built in tools in Picassa

Thanks for your ideas guys.
@ kahawai chaser
I have looked at clone stamp tool which looks great for erasing but I need to be able to put something else in its place.
E.g. erase the original person but replace them with another person.

I will try Gimp but i know it will be a steep learning curve.

Happy New Year
