I want to remove the background from a crossed-out circle. I removed the background from the outside of the circle but not the inside. This looks like the inside is transparent, but it is not. Crossed Out Trans Circle with inner background.png

I am using Photoshop Elements 2023. I  grabbed the supposedly transparent image off the web, but it is not trans. 

I removed the outer background, but removing the checkered interior background is illusive. I didn't find anything on the web on how to remove the interior background. Thanks for your help.

in the future, to find the best place to post your message, use the list here, https://community.adobe.com/

p.s. i don't think the adobe website, and forums in particular, are easy to navigate, so don't spend a lot of time searching that forum list. do your best and we'll move the post if it helps you get responses.

4. Repeat step #3 for the other segment.

5. For demonstration I have cleared one  of the segments.
