First you need to create an accout. This is where we will save ALL of our work so it is important that you do this first.

Go to "File"--"Open"--"Image"s and open your background in Pixlr
Save the picture below with a green screen background. (Right Click....or CTRL Click--> Save Image As)
Go to "File"--> "Open Image" and open the minion image in Pixlr (you should have two windows so you can go back and forth between both images)
7.) First, you need to "unlock" the background of the Minion Image (double click the Lock Icon in the Layers Window)
6.) Next, Select the "Wand Tool" in your Toolbar
Click on the green area surrounding the minion. Once it is selected you will see a dashed line going around your image.
As you select areas of green you can hit delete to remove the green background--You should see a gray and white checkered pattern appear when the green is deleted. This means you are removing the background.
Click and delete until there is no green left (see images below).
Now you are ready to drag the minion layer onto your first background image.
Click on the minion layer and drag it onto the background picture.
Now you can go to "Edit"--> "Free Transform" to change the size and rotate your Minion. Hit "Return" when you are done editing.
The "Move Tool" allows you to move the Minion wherever you want (arrow icon)
You can also "Duplicate" your layers to create more minions! If you have time, try it out!
While Selected on your Minion Layer go to "Layer"--> "Duplicate Layer"
Before you leave, be sure to go to.....
