Hello! I recently just got the Photoshop Elements 2020. I used to use photoshop back in 2017, but I see things have changed. I mainly use photoshop for its quick use of making a photo's background transparent because I like to edit photos. But since I've gotten the 2020 version, I can't make the background transparent? It just turns to white. I'd appreciate the help!Screenshot (2).png

Make a selection. For example use the magic wand selection tool and click somewhere on the white area. Then use the menu:

Select >> Inverse

With the objects then selected press Ctrl+J (Cmd+J on Mac) to create a new layer with transparency.
