hello!

I want to select some items in a photo (raster) and delete them and then fill the void with colors of the surroundings

I want to draw an area that will not resemble rectangular, circle, etc (it will have complicated margins) and fill it with specific color or color pattern

I want to replace a photograph with its relevant sketch

how do I do these?

thanks!

mm, is there a freeware method, because I need it urgently and I dont have the time to decide for a purchase?

I once saw a tool in gimp, paint.net, inkscape or something, that fills an image with its surrounding, which was amazing
photoshop has a tool like that too, but dont know how it's called

Inkscape is not a raster image editor.
Photoshop is something to purchase too.

1) Gimp
2) Inkscape
3) unclear what you want to do

You'll need to take lots of time to learn and research though. So if time is money, you'll end up paying a lot...

Thanks for the mention, mouser  smiley

Kalos, I presume, these are 3 independent tasks. If your final goal is to something more complex that involves the 3 mentioned steps, people may be able to give you a more suitable advice. So:

1) People usually use a Clone or a Healing Brush tools for these tasks. The first one copies pixels from one place to another place (blending the edges) and it is suitable for removal of larger objects from photos. The second one is a specialized version of Clone that takes the surrounding of the replaced are into account - it work pretty well if the replaced area is small and the surroundings are simple. Photoshop even has a spot healing brush that does not require you to specify the source of the copied pixels. You'll find at least one the first tool in many free editors (including mine). Gimp also has a healing brush (I am unsure how good it is), so if you want all a free tool with all the options, grab Gimp for this task.

2) In raster editor? I have a lasso and polygon drawing tools in my editor that should work very well. In Gimp, you'll probably have to first select an area with lasso selection and then fill it with the bucket tool.

3) There are again multiple choices. Maybe a simple Posterize filter (found again for example in Gimp) will be enough for you (though I do not usually like these posterized photographs). If you are looking for something better (for example http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KcCYHqLAB8 ), you may need a vector editor like Inkscape. (I am working on allowing this kind of things in my editors, but it is not ready yet.)
