How do I convert these to transparent png?

Open the file in photoshop
Create a new blank layer with no fill
Put the image with the monitor/PC in the top layer and delete the white part around it.
Flatten the image
Save for web. Select PNG. Click the box to enable transparency and you get this

Depending what your final use is you can do similar things with a clipping path

Plenty of video tutorials on the web including specifics for photoshop or other graphic programs. With the link above is quite a few beginner tutorials that can be of help also.

Other tutorials won't have the video but also photoshop "help" files including adobe forums can be helpful.

Here's how I did it very simple.
Open in shop > New Layer From Background > switch to Magic Tool > click on image background > delete the background clean & easy > save as png

Another question, how can I cleanly & easily make the "HAF" disappear like it's not even there? I tried playing with Exposure, Levels, but it's just too much...

I used the clone stamp to get rid of the bulk of the letters.
Then used the smudge tool to blend it in,
then the blur tool to soften the transition.
Took about 4 - 5 minutes.

Thanks!
What about could you make the HAF barely visible?

Could someone please remove the watermark in the bottom right corner and dim the "HAF" to make it barely visible?

Cleaned up the watermark (transparency looks much better on light background)... Now, how can I compress it in size without losing image quality? And what simple and clean technique to use to dim the "HAF" to make it barely visible?
