I've an image whose white background is removed. In particular, I used "Magic Wand Tool" to select and to remove that background (as explained here by @Dom) as follows:

enter image description here

(The white recatngles are not parts of the real scenario, and I've just added them here for the purpose of hiding the majority of the text!)

Then, I just saved the image as a JPEG file, and I added it to another one. What I expected to see was having the background-less image truly without any background placed on another image, but what I get is an unwanted white background as below:

I guess saving my background-less *.psd file as a JPEG image again adds a white background to my image. Can you please explain how can I save and add my background-less photo not to be disturbed by any (here white!) background?!

Just save the background-less photoshop file as a .png file instead of .jpg. Then, your image will be saved with transparency.
