You havent told us which program your using :)

In photoshop you can literally erase the background. (keep in mind that some file formats dont allow transparency - so make sure your using one that does (PNG)).

oh yeah sorry.......gimp and paint.net are the ones im trying to use. There is just so many items on them and i just can't seem to find the right place to make the background transparent. But i am pretty sure they both save png. Thanks @ GenkiGenga for your reply :)

Haha i know what you mean.

I had a quick search on gimp and found this, i hope it helps.

1.Get GIMP.
2.Open up that image.
3.Add an Alpha Channel by clicking Layer -> Transparency -> Add Alpha channel.
4.Launch the Fuzzy Select Tool by pressing the m key.
5.Click on the background.
6.Press the Delete key.
7.Save it as a .png file, as that supports transparency.
8.Profit?

Another way of doing it is right clicking on the layer in the layer panel and clicking on Add Alpha.
