In photoshop grab your magic wand tool. Have a look at your channels and see if there is one that has a greater contrast between foreground and background than the others. Use that channel to create your selection with the magic wand tool. You may have to adjust the tolerance level. Go back to your RGB composited channel and hit delete with your background still selected. Clean up any straggler pixels by hand with the eraser tool. Make sure youre not editing a "Background" layer since deleting will result in white.
