I have this image, and I want to erase the grey background from it, but conserving the blue aura from the hand. Can anyone tell me how can I do it?

Try this:

  1. From the menu Select/Color Range
  2. Click on the background area which will select some of the gray area
  3. Adjust the Fuzziness and Range as shown below
  4. Click on the eyedropper with a plus (+) next to it
  5. Click on the gray areas that are not selected until you have a good coverage
  6. Click OK
  7. Press Ctrl-J to create a new layer with the selection

The background will be gone. I put a sample on red background to give you the idea
