Can I crop an object out of photo and add it to another photo without getting any of the background from the previous photo?

Example: I have an image of a patio set, but there is a background. I want the background to be white. I want to see every part of the patio set, but none of the previous background, including between the legs of the patio set.

    You can use the many different selection tools (each tailored to creating a specific kind of selection) in combination to isolate the patio set from the background. Then you can copy and paste this selected area onto a new, blank white canvas. Or, you can inverse the selection (so the background is selected but the patio set is not) and then delete the selected area (the background) and/or fill it with white.
