Image removal
I need to find out what process is employed to separate an image from its background. An image from one of the image services for example. I need for the actual image to be shed of the often white background in order to better work with an existing background on the graphic. It seems straight forward enough, I just have limited computer graphic chops.
Thanks to anyone that can help!

RE: Inage removal
To remove the background, see here:

To remove the foreground, if the background is uniform, just paint over, for "small" objects over mixed background, use the Clone tool, for some bigger objects, look at the "Liquid Rescale" filter.
