Instructions to remove white background from Clipart or embellishments using Photoshop Elements
1.Open your clipart picture or embellishment you want to make transparent.
2.Double-click on background layer. It should say new layer O. Click ok.
3.Click on the white background with the magic wand; you should see the “marching ants” now.
4.Go to edit and click cut. You should now have a checkerboard background.
5.Go to file and then to save for web. A new screen comes up. Be sure it says PNG-24 and there is a checkmark beside transparency. Click ok.
6.You get your save box so you can choose the folder you want to save it in and a file name. Be sure the save type in PNG.
You can also do this in GIMP and Paint Shop Pro, but it is done a little differently in each program.
