You could try the magic wand. Highlight the area and delete. If your background is transparent and if you save as a transparent gif, then the background will show through.

My trial ran out so I can't test these, but they seem like the right way to do it.

You can try this freeware graphics editor.

www.gimp.org

You may need some patience to set it up and learn how to use it, but in the end you'll have a decent graphics editor.

copy the image and make a new transparent image the same size. Use the magic wand, select the tolorence, 0 will only select the exact same colour, then delete the selection.
