Back to my question, does anyone want my copy of Poser 6? It's not supported by wimdows 7. It's a legal copy and I'd hate for it to go to waste. PM me...
Sorry, I'm not a PhotoShopper, I'm a PaintShopper. But I'm sure, you can change the backround to transparent in the File preferences.
There are a couple of ways to do it in Photoshop (I use CS6). The first is to create a channel mask, which you then overlay on the original image.
I must confess, all these steps made me confuse. And in PSP it's a very easy thing. Cut out the shape, copy it, insert as new image, save as xxx.png.

My preferred method these days is to create a duplicate layer of the background, and put a black solid colour layer under that duplicate. Then use the erase tools to erase the background you don't want (the black layer will show up anything that isn't erased yet). Then "burn" your image completely black, invert it so that it is now completely white, and use that cutout white image as your mask on the original (I do that so that if any additional erasing needs to be done, or if you want to add bits back in, you can, simply by erasing the white areas, or painting them back in with the white paintbrush).
For a fast and dirty cutout, especially with a white background like this, you could just use the background eraser tool (set sensitivity so it only erases the white, and not the other bits you want to keep, like her hair) around the delicate bits and edges, and then use the eraser set at about 90% hardness to erase the rest.
You can do it that simply in Photoshop as well. Take image - erase the background around your subject to make the cutout. Save as png.I must confess, all these steps made me confuse. And in PSP it's a very easy thing. Cut out the shape, copy it, insert as new image, save as xxx.png. Done!
