Do not need to get everything perfectly using the Magic Want but you need to get a general select using this tool to mark the elements from the background you want to remove. It is your first selection process. Click on the image elements you want to select. You will get rough draft selection that is not very clean. To make the selection clean looking, Photoshop has a very useful built in tool to easily clean that up after.

You will find an icon in that feature like a camera on the right of the Tool Box. You will see Edit and Quick Mask Mode, when you click on the icon all the image elements you have not rough selected will become red. Click on the Eraser tool to add elements that are not included in the red parts. And use the Paint Brush tool to take out the element selections you do not want. These tools will refine your image and is the second part of your selection process. When you have a clean looking image, find the Edit in Standard Mode icon and finalize your selection. Then click Edit, Copy and Paste onto a New file. This way you get a copy of the original image and the edited image. Photoshop keeps the image copied on your clipboard and will automatically resize the copied image to match the size of the original. When you have your new extracted image saved on a New file that the final product with the background removed.
