I tend to do it 1 of 2 ways, it depends on how complex the background is.

For a background that is pretty much solid in colour:

I select the magic wand tool and click the background and hit delete.

A note about this, is that it can leave you with some jagged edges, this doesn't really matter if you are resizing the element afterwards as that causes the edges to soften.


For a more detailed background I tend to use the rectangular marquee tool, draw a box over the element I want to keep and copy and past it to a new level (thus removing the majority of the background) I then erase the background by hand using the eraser tool.
