Step 1: Opening GIMP, and cuting out the head.
Once the Giraffe head has been cut out, then click inside of it, and right-click, and then copy. Go back to you picture of the turtle now, and right click it and go down to the options where it says "dockable tabs" highlight that, and open the layers and channels one.
Then click the Button on the layers you just opened that looks like a New pages icon, (it is a new layer icon). Now make sure you make the new layer transparent, (it will be one of your choices to select.). Now with your new layer opened, paste that girrafe head you cut out onto the turtle (it will still be seperate from the turtle, but you will see it on top.
(your giraffe head may be bigger that it shows in the picture below, dont worry, i will cover that in the next step.
