All you have to do is ask. I know many of the peeps here have varying degrees of knowledge on PS. So, lay it on us.

MMkay ... well, there are a few ways to do that.

The big one being, isolating your subject you want to keep to delete the background.

The easiest, most tedious way, but one of the best ways to do it is with the Lasso Tool. There are 3 Lasso Tools, a freehand one, which lets you just circle things and selects whatever you circle in any odd shape, there's a magnetic one, this one latches on to objects that have a strong contrasty separation in the pixels of your item/subject you are selecting, and then their's a point to point one, basically you click points and it selects from point to point to select your subject, this one is good for definite geometric objects, like boxes or signs.

With the lasso tool, once you select your subject it will create a selecting around your subject. You will know you have done a selecting when the subject with surrounded by moving lines. Looks like ants walking around your subject.

Then you do a few of things here.

- You can invert your select (Command+I = on a mac / Control+I = on a pc).
And press delete.

- You can copy and paste your object on a new layer. (Simple copy and paste)

- You can press the new layer button on the bottom of the layer's palette right next to the trash.

So, that's one way and the most common.

your picture is going to look REALLY weird if the new background lighting does not match the subject lighting...just keep that in mind...
