How do I make an image without a background? For example, I want to copy and paste this image to another background but don't want the black in this image to be a part of it?

I've already done that. That just makes the background white. But I want it so that the only things that are even considered a part of the image are the logo and the writing.

I think it causes the background to be checkered with grey and white, but not sure.

save it as a transparent gif.

lots of tutorials out there - it's called a transparent background

Thanks- that helps.

The checkered grey and white = transparent.

Start a new file, with the same image size as the image you want to manipulate. Set the background from "White" to transparent. Then you can use the magic wand and delete.

Ctrl + C, then Ctrl + N, then enter, then Ctrl + V. This will paste just that layer on a new document. Delete the background layer then.
