    Need help editing a picture

    I'm hoping someone can help me out. I have a picture and I need the background to be transparent. I can build web pages, but I'm a dummy when it comes to photoshop, my editor of choice is paintbrush


    I need to put it on my webpage which has a grayish background. THe white background of this picture sticks out like a sore thumb.

    Here is the picture if anyone is willing to help.....I'd really appreciate it.

    there you go, I think a gif can do....

    To do it yourself with Photoshop, open the picture, use the magic wand too to select the background you want to get rid of (shortcut "W"), then ctrl+shift+I to inverse the selection, then ctrl+alt+D to create a little feather (5 to 10 pix) then ctrl C, ctrl N and ctrl V.

    Finally ctrl S to save and select the "gif" format...

    Yeah it has to be a gif because jpg doesn't support transparency.
