How do you isolate a sprite?

I’m a noob at this photoshop stuff, it looks like magic wand tool highlights the sprite from the checkered background fine but how do i crop it from there? Or am I doing something totally wrong?

I’m gonna go out on a limb and say you should probably check the stickies if you’re looking for answers.

Granted, no one wants to look through a couple hundred pages for a really simple answer, but no one wants to have to constantly deal with simple requests.

At least look halfheartedly, then when they tell you to look, you can say, “I did look.” Maybe they’ll go through and find it for you.
