    i would like to use this as my Windows 10 lock screen but the lock screen 'face' icon obscures it. Would someone be able to cut out the portion of this photo so I can upload it to the icon and it would be like adding a peice to the puzzle. I would really appreciate it! Thanks.

    thanks pepanee but i was not clear i think. The lock screen has a circle for the user icon. Can you crop this image and make it for the user icon? I would then upload the user icon and it would 'appear' as if the image is intact in its entirety.

    its like cropping the area around Godzillas mouth for example

    i see you moved Godzilla over, that was good idea but I would still like to try my idea as well.

    You're right. Sorry about my first upload; I thought you wanted that picture on the log in screen where it has that circle, where it would cover his face. But now I understood what you want. You want the Dinosaur as your user account picture. Try this other one I uploaded right above this post. It worked out well over here when I tried it out. Tell me what you think

    @tonightwetaco It's actually quite easy to do this yourself using Paint. Open the image in Paint, click and drag to draw a selection box then click 'Crop'. Remember to 'Save as...' a new file - just using Save will overwrite the original. Better yet, work on a copy of the original.

    You need to use 'Ease of Access Replacer' and take a Screenshot of the sign-in screen to find where the user icon sits on that screen.

    The result depends on the screen resolution; so go with that from here if your screen is 1080p.
    Take a screenshot of the lock-screen with the image obscured. Then In Paint you can get the dimensions and position to select & copy from real image. Or if you have the programs, superpose the screenshot with the actual image in Photoshop / GIMP in layers and select the 'face' icon and copy - paste from the clean image.
