I edited the question to include "Draw" in the title as the question was originally tagged "draw" but please feel free to clarify this. Is "in power point and again in writing document" a reference to using MS Office to accomplish this task?

No, everything I used was in LibreOffice. When I was writing the question I meant to say LibreOffice Writer, but I couldn't think of what it was called. But the power point was also LibreOffice Presentation. And thank you for correcting me.

The process of removing the background (in Draw) from an image will depend on whether it is a raster (JPG, PNG, etc.) or vector (drawn object) object. The Draw Guide v4.1 pp.113-114 provides an overview, although in my experience the use of the Picture toolar to manipulate raster graphics, particularly in relation to removing a background, is limited. Transparency will affect the entire raster image. Draw is a fairly basic tool by comparison with dedicated image editing software.
