Yeah, it sounds like you need to cut the foreground out so the background doesn't block out the rest of the composition.

There are a few tutorials for that: The Easier Way | The Higher Quality Way

in my defense; English is my 2nd language and i could not think of another term at the moment i posted my initial post.. i was also un-aware i was unleashing an "attack" on the newbie.

i attached the image, all i want is to copy it to a image with a black background but like i said, the edges do not look good if i simply delete the background..

PDN Tricks and Tips. Use the alpha mask method, it's right at the top of the page. But fill back the parts that are supposed to white (new layer, move layer down, select the areas that have to be white with the lasso tool, press [shift]+[Click inside the selection with white as your primary color]), and flatten the image. Add a new layer, fill it with black, move it down, and flatten the image. Done.
