Hi David!

To make areas transparent you have to delete parts of the image. I assume in your case you want to replace the background around an object in your image with transparency and thus you want to select the background and delete it.

You can select the background using a variety of tools. Which one to use depends on the type of background. But you can try the marquee tools, the magic wand tool and the paint selection tool. You'll find a lot of videos on this in the tutorial section here: Tutorials
Make sure to export your image into a format that supports transparancy, like the PNG format for example.
