Using Photoshop Elements 2, magic wand tool, click on the white card backgrounds, magic wand selects only the colour clicked on, delete and on my setup the area becomes "transparent", shown as grey & white squares, when saved and desplayed looks like a white background but if overlayed text or image will show through. As you ca see I missed a couple of bits.

I expect the same tool is in photoshop full version.....and simular in other image/photo apps.

What software do you have?

Buy a book ! Quickstart guides are only about 20 quid (Peachpit Press).

This tool exists in version 7 of Photoshop (I looked in my book!). Load picture, select tool, click on area not wanted, selects "like" colours and forms a boundary, press delete, you can adjust sensitivity to colour etc. I "inverted" picture deleted all the black and inverted again.

Good luck

Or..........


Search using vector paths......


And get results like this (much neater, and smoother edges)
