get in front of your wall, as this will act as your green screen. Kind of like a chroma key, it will not show up in the final picture. Take a pose, and have somebody snap a picture. My pose wasn't so great becuase i had to take the picture myself, pressing the shutter with my foot. It isn't advised.

The images of you are a bit dark for that background. You could easily turn this into a game screenshot?
e.g.

Hey! I used to do this to everyone when I first got my camera! (uh-oh, I feel a 'nostalgiagasm' in the works)

 Whenever I try to delete the wall, It always selects part of me too. Is there antother way to kill the wall?

you can try to change the tolerance on the wand tool, but if that still doesn't work, you can always use the lasso tool. It will be on the tool selection box along with the wand, and to use it  all you have to do is click at some point along the border of the part you want  to crop and drag the tool around the border of the part you want cropped. You will see as you get to the other side of you that your picture will start filling in with grey. Just continue draging until you are selected, press ctrl c and make a new page. you can then paste your image. if there is anything else in the part you cropped out that you don't want, you can lasso that too. did this help?
 Thats great, thanks!

IF you go to Adjustments -> Curves in Paint.NET, you should see a peak near the right hand side of the graph that represents the wall colour. If you raise the curve so that it hits 100% just before this curve then the wall will become pure white. See this page for a great tutorial on how curves work.

That should
a) make selecting the wall easier
b) lighten the images you want to cut out

so deal with two problems at once.
