I'm trying to put a picture over a picture but want the white back ground clear so i can see the picture behind it. Is there an easy way to do this? Thank you.

Yes, use Photoshop. A tool called Magic Wand. Select the white color, then invert selection (Ctrl+Shift+i), copy it, create new document with Transparent background (New file settings) and paste it. Then save it as PNG-24 with transparency.

Here is the best I can get with magic wand.

Ideally I always use the magnetic lasso tool and go round all the edges manually, but since there are so man here I just used magnetic wand/some manual adjustments since the magic wand was picking up the white shine in the chrome and trying to delete some parts of the drums.

I then used the refine edge tool and some manual blurring.

Here it is as a transparent PNG

would be better quality if it was also larger so that when its downscaled a bit you wouldnt see the rough edges.
