If you want only the silhouette you will need to save the file to a format that supports transparencies like TIFF or PNG.
You have to select out the player first, then duplicate the selection to place it on its own layer (CTRL + J in Photoshop), then you can either delete or turn off the visibility of the background layer. Save it to a file format that support transparency and you'll have the player only.
Thanks so much for the tips & for taking the time to show me how it would look.
Now, for the next step, I want only to have the black silhouette … kind of like a piece of clip art … that can be placed on the poster/trading card. Do I need to use the white background at all or should I just cut the player out of the original file and then follow the steps you suggested? I cut the player out and just inserted it on top of a white background layout. Sorry for the remedial questions.
Thanks again for your help.
