You're close, but you've seemed to have missed a step

Using the magic wand, set the tolerance to around 25%, and click on the background and it should clearly indicate the background as selected as shown below:


Once you've got the background selected, simply press the delete key on your keyboard and you should now get a checkered appearing background (this now indicates it is transparent):


Now save the image as .png or .gif file.

The software is called "Paint.net"

In fact, this entire forum is dedicated to the discussion of this software.

Here's a link to the download location: http://www.dotpdn.com/downloads/pdn.html

Also, this thread is quite old. If you take a look at rule #11 in the forum rules, it says not to reply to old threads. If you wish to continue discussion of an old topic, simply make a new thread and link to the old one. Thanks!
