Default photoshop question

i'm trying to get this picture where the car just has white all around it. but the magic wand only takes the same colors out and my hand is too shaky when it comes to the eraser. is there another way?

...btw i have CS2

magic wand only takes out the same colors year, but you can just take out all of the colors that you can, then youll be left wit scattered bits, that you can easily take out with an eraser. then, touch up with the eraser on thet car

change the tolerance, its a little box at the top, a higher number will select more colours

i use the magnetic lasso for everything. just select the car with it, (leaving the white out) then save the selection so you don't have to do it again (select>save selection) and then get out the eraser. make the brush size big so it'll be easier to erase, and then just go over the whole thing with the eraser. it'll only erase what you haven't selected
