Removing Background

I downloaded an image but it has a white background and I need the background to be transparent. How do I remove the background?

Open the image in photoshop, using the magic wand you can select subject, (or using any other selection tool) Then delete the background (you will need to open the background layer first) Then save it as a png or tiff which both support transparency

Open up the image in Photoshop and under image select subject and when it selects the image use a clipping mask and save it as a Photoshop psd file
