To do this type of image editing there are several applications that we can install. Some with a higher and others with a lower difficulty in the learning curve. There are even paid and really complete applications (Eg. ©Adobe Photoshop) and others with lower cost or even free (Eg. Gimp) but can serve us perfectly.
