Adjust the settings of the Magic Wand Tool in the Options bar at the top of the screen.

Click on the background area you want to remove with the Magic Wand Tool. Hold down the Shift key while clicking to add more areas to the selection.

If you accidentally select areas you don’t want to include,

hold down the Alt key (Option key on Mac) and click on those areas to subtract them from the selection.

After making the initial selection, refine it further by going to “Select” > “Refine Edge” or by using the shortcut Ctrl+Alt+R (or Command+Option+R on Mac).

The Refine Edge dialog box will appear.

In the Refine Edge dialog box, you can use tools like the “Refine Radius Tool” or the “Quick Selection Tool” to refine the selection and make it more accurate.

Adjust the settings according to your specific image and preferences.

You can preview the result in real-time to see how the selection looks.

Once you’re satisfied with the refined selection, click “OK” in the Refine Edge dialog box.

With the selection still active, press the “Delete” key on your keyboard to remove the selected background area. This will replace the selected pixels with transparency.
