I haven't been able to get a different background, like from from living room to a beach....you usually need a paid for photo editor software to do it....but I HAVE been able to do solid colors. If you upload your image to www.photobucket.com (accounts are free) and edit it there is a cut out feature that will closely follow the lines of an object and allow you to remove the background and then paint it in with a solid color or leave white.
A before and after example
It's not perfect...it's a little choppy, but the it's purpose (our holiday cards) the printed version was smaller and the choppyness wasn't as noticeable
