Hi,

Since Inkscape is a vector program, you can't *cut* a picture.
But you can clip it:
1. Draw a path (or a shape) on the picture (the part of the picture you want to hide must be outside this path).
2. Select the picture and the path, and use Object>Clip>Set.

Clipping is a non-destructive action, and you can remove or modify the clipping path afterwards.

More details on clipping on Tav's manual: http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/Clip.html
