The problem is, there are several ways to separate a foreground from a
background. Much depends on the nature of the image. Plain colour background
then color select or complicated background using scissors or foreground select
tool. Non-destructive - use a layer mask or really clean cut-out using a path.
Add to that the permutations in Gimp layout combined with as you say,
instructions using old versions of Gimp, all add to possible confusion.
I have been know to knock up a video at the drop of a hat. Not bothered if it is
viewed or not, just need a clue as what is required.
As well as the native Gimp tools there are plugins that help
Example, this one (already a bit dated) using a plugin g'mic from www.gmic.eu
