First, go install the Photoshop updates.
Then use Select -> Inverse.

Photoshop has many ways to achieve such a selection, but they do require that you know basic Photoshop usage.

Several people on multiple forums appear to have attempted to explain it to you, but you don't seem to understand even basic Photoshop operations and concepts. QuickSelect can get a decent selection in about 10 seconds, which can be refined in a minute or so. Select->Contract can get pretty close after selecting the white and inside areas. Channel operations could get you closer, but can be complex (especially for new users). QuickMask is always available, but can be time consuming since you have to paint in the mask areas - but it's a fast way to refine a mask created by other means.

Also, do you have permission to be copying and using all these copyrighted images? (because the image owners probably have all the layer data available)

Chrix Cox yes i have permission of artists. The images here are not the problem.

See you failed at second image. Show me how to do it quickly with your most advanced photoshop how to select it.

However you cant because this billion dollar software doesnt even have very simplistic inner selection or single sided reverse feature. I am talking about this image

Show me how to do it in single click. yes if these features were there it would be only single click

now show me how to do it quickly

It still sounds like you need to read some tutorials on how to work with basic selections and masking in Photoshop.
