Open your image in PS.
Select all with Ctrl +A.
Copy the image Ctrl+C.
Create a new canvas (Ctrl +n) with transparent background.
Paste your copied image into the new blank canvas, Ctrl+V.

From the tool panel (on left) select the wand tool and click on the bg of the image and press del.
Now go Image -> Trim and hit ok at the diolog.
Now save for web Ctrl+Alt+Shift+S (or select save for web from the file menu).
Set your matt colour to the same as your webpage bg colour and then save.
