    but when i open the file as a jpeg, it looks like this:

    Zoom in and Pen tool around the part you want to keep and then once it is all pen tooled (connected all of the dancing ants from point a - z) go up to go to SELECT choose INVERSE (Shift + CTRL + I) and DELETE and it will delete your background. Make sure you have a transparent BG Layer underneath this layer.

    Don't save it as a jpg, it doesn't support transparency. Use png instead.

    It's a problem with how you're saving it. Save as a transparent .png, 24-bit (or 8-bit if you have to). You can probably also get away with saving it as a .gif too, but it's not quite as good as a 24-bit png. Like the above poster said, jpeg absolutely does not support transparency.
