Hi Maybee
Use the magic wand to select the black areas that you don't want.
Then go to Selections - Invert.
Paste as new image
You now will have the cookie and monster on a transparent background.
You might need to then use the eraser to get rid of any stray black pixels around the edge.
Hope this makes sense
Sue :)

Then when you have the circular image on a transparent background, choose "File/Export/GIF Optimizer" and save it with the existing transparency.
