I found some images & want to paste them to 2cm counters. The image is a human character with white background. How to make the background transparent so that the image background will not cover the texts on the counter? Is there an option to do it in MS paint? Thanks in advance.

From a quick look it seems impossible to do it with Paint.

You might want to use Photoshop or the free GIMP to access more advanced features like that.

I used to be able to if it was the correct gif format. I don't see Paint having that gif format as an option. So, most likely not an option with paint.

Paint.NET is what you need - free and very accessible app.

You can do it easily in PowerPoint as well.

When you're pasting, have your background color set to white and choose "transparent selection."
