        I use Adobe Photoshop Elements. I use the magic wand then clear the area. Some times I also have to use the Magic Eraser afterwards.

          I use Adobe Photoshop 6, but all the Adobe products seem to be similar in basic operation.

          The magic wand selects anything with a similar color. Before you click on the delete button, you need to make sure only what you want deleted is selected. If you have a white background next to a white-like element, you have to delete some of the white around the element before you can continue. I like to use a big round eraser and a magnified view when I do this for better control. It works best if you cutout the entire frame and paste it into a new transparent document before starting. Then erase the color and the transparent pattern will replace the color.

          Hang in there! Adobe products are worth the learning curve.

              Here is a link for you, Wickel. It might help the frazzles. I subscribed for free to a 8 session course that is emailed each week to you. I felt I knew the basics of Photoshop but I learned something new each lesson. I am only at five right now. I have to admit, this scrapbooking gave me the incentive to learn more about the program.
