Easiest way to get rid of the black would be to open the file in Paint.NET and then use the Alpha Mask plugin which would turn the black to transparent.

(After the background in transparent, save it as a file which preserves the transparency, such as .gif, .tga or .png)

Then you could resize it using image>resize

Where do you get plugins im only new as well and would like to get rid of a background in a picture as well.

This is all so confusing to me cannot understand any of it.

Thanks Lee

I wouldn't take the Alphamask plugin in this case. Boltbaits StripPrimaryColour does a ten times better job in this case.
