    Well I usually use the magic wand to start off it helps when getting rid of huge chunks of unwanted background. But if it looks like it will take out some of the actual image that I want I go in with the eraser. Some times I even set it to 1px and zoom in to 400 or even 500 to make sure I get it all the unwanted stuff out of the way. Then If the edges look too sharp or and stand out alot, I smooth it out with the blur tool.

    I am totally against the MAgic Wand & Magic Eraser techniques. It just doesnt sit well. First off they do horrible in most areas unless you can adjust the settings for them. but they are ok for white backgrounds only.(and even that is really shady).

    I'd go with Jade's tutorial (1st one in Arri's post)

    But for serious extraction people. you'll want to use the pen tool. Its easy(when you know how to properly curve them) and is very very smooth.

    (mayble i'll give a tut on it...)

    but it all depends on which program you are using. If you are just starting out, i highly doubt you've got Photoshop(since the price is crazy) and its a total waste if all you are doing is making sigs and walls.

    I'd use the GIMP,(google it >.>), its the very same for free(just about).

    I'd say zoom in 600 to 700 percent and use the polygonal. Works wonders and you get everything cleaned and there's rarely jagged lines.
