Picture has black rectangular border when it should be just selection

I have cut a selection out of a picture in photoshop but selecting it with the wand tool, then copying to a new layer, and deleting the background, so there should be no background.  However, when I put the photo into an InDesign document it shows with a black rectangular background.  How can I get rid of this?

 

Many thanks

    Make sure the frame isn’t filled with black.

    In which format are you saving the file in Photoshop?

     

    Can you try PNG fiel format and then place it in Indesign and then check.

    Try "File-->Place" to put the image in the Indesign and then check,

     

    If Possible put the screen shot to what happens.

    If you really want a transparent background, save as .psd or TIFF. JPEG does not support transparency and if you put that in front of a background you'll see white around the caterpiller.
