To remove the background from an image mark the image so that the Picture Tools appear. In the ”Adjust” section click “Remove background”.

All the areas that are marked purple will be deleted. Narrow down the selection to include only the part of the picture that you want to keep. Sometimes you have to fine-tune the selection by marking areas by hand. But in this case it looks like the entire background is purple so I’ll click “Keep Changes”. And there we go! The background is removed.
