Removing backgrounds in Paint Shop Pro

A quick question: does anyone know how to remove backgrounds in Paint Shop Pro? I want to remove the background from photos of various objects (like you get in a sales catalogue) and can’t figure out how to do it. Well, I can sort of do it but PSP doesn’t seem to act consistently… I’m sure it’s because I’m not a competent user!

Instructions for dummies, please!!!

    look at http://www.designsbyjoy.net/PSPTutorials1/psp8/Removing-Background.htm

    in photoshop i use the magic wand if the background has only one color or the magnet tool to define the border, then I use the scissors to cut it. sometimes you want to inverse the selection you made with the wand to cut the positive or negative space. does this make sense? :-)
