How to make an image background transparent in Photoshop

adobe-photoshopimage editing

I have an image with a white background which I downloaded. I want the background to be transparent. How do I achieve this in Photoshop?

What I did was, select the background of the image, using Magic Wand, but I don't know how to proceed since both the foreground and the background colors are white.

The quickest method is to:

  • First select the background using the Magic Wand tool (W, try different tolerance levels)
  • Fine tune the selection with the Quick Selection tool (ShiftW) by pressing + and - keys
  • After that, you can click on the Refine Edge button on the tool's properties while you have any selection tool active.
