It's possible to separate objects from a flattened image depending on
how much those objects blend into the surrounding area.

For example, GIMP has Foreground Select Tool:

Once you have a selection of an object, you can create a layer from it
(Ctrl+X to cut, Ctrl+Shift+V to paste as a new layer).

It will not perfectly work for each and every case, though. So you'd
have to show us some examples of those images. Otherwise we can only
give you general directions.
