I dont use photoshop. Is there any online tool which one can use to change background of a picture, to make it uniformly white?

The short answer is no. If you have a fairly uniform background to begin with a tool like the "magic wand*" which will automatically select similar colors can work. The more uniform the background is and the less similar to the subject you want to select the better it will work. The basic ide is you first select the background then invert the selection so it's the subject that is selected.

It's the same concept with the green or blue screens you may have seen them use on TV or movies.

*not sure what PS calls it but that's the name on my photo editor.

You can download GIMP or paint.net for free but are voth fairly advanced photo editors. Both are going to have a learning curve, especially GIMP.
