Here is one way of doing it, but it is on the condition that you stop trying to guilt trip us...I can only speak for myself, but for me it's getting pretty old.
Now on to the fun.
In Photoshop 7 (may be different in earlier versions)
1. Select 'Open' from the file menu.
2. In the window that pops up navigate to the file you wish to edit - highlight it - press the open button (or return key)
3. Click on the button for the zoom tool or press 'z'
4. With the zoom tool selected click within the image until you are clearly able to see the different pixels.
5. Now choose the Magic Wand tool (press 'w')
6. At the top of the screen you will see an input box that says "Tolerance" set that to 1.
7. Click in the white background of the image - doing so will select everything that is white.
8. Fill the selected area w/ a random color (using the paint bucket tool - press 'g')
9. Look at the image. You should see a lot of pixels that are slightly off white around your image.
10. Select the pencil tool (press 'b')
11. Click the select foreground color button and choose white (all RGB numbers = 255, CMYK = 0)
12. With the pencil tool, click on every single pixel around the edge of your image that is off white.
13. When you are done coloring - switch back to the paint bucket and click on the crazy color you changed the previously white background to.
14. Save the image.
This is an exceedingly painful way of doing it, but it should work.
Have a blast.
