    You're going to need to use some photo editing software. Doing a google search of "photo editing software" will get you a ton of results. Then you need to add an alpha channel or a transparency. Doing a google search of "create transparent background" will get you another ton of results. Once you pick out a photo editor, you'll be able to google exactly how to do it with that software.

    I personally use gimp, but there are a ton of options out there.

    If you use a program like Paint.NET you can set it to be transparent in the background. To do this:

    1) Make an image
    2) Use the rectangle select tool to select the whole image
    3) Press delete

    You can tell that it is transparent because the background will be a tiled checkerboard rather than a white background.
