Since adobe photoshop is the most popular photo editor, let’s consider it. However, the algorithm is the same in any photo editing software or online resource.
Take a photo on the monochromatic background of the contrasting shade. If you want to sell back dress – find some white of light bedspread, if you want to sell some colorful accessory – use gray or black background. When you become more skilled in Photoshop, you can use any background!
Open a photo in the Photoshop and use a smart selection tool to create your working contour. They are framed in red on the next picture.

If you accidentally selected the wrong part, hold Alt button and correct the selection.

Or you can use Magic Eraser tool!
Press <File – Save as> and save your picture in *jpeg format.
