  • White Background

    Can anyone tell me how to remove the white background on a clipart image so that it is clear and blends in with the background.
    Sorry for all the questions. I am just very keen to learn.

    What I do is take the image into a PhotoEditing programme & then have to manually remove the 'background'.

    someone more technical will come along shortly (i'm sure) and explain this to you. Just hang in there.....

        i use paint shop pro 9 (psp)

        to remove white from an image in psp (paint shop pro)
        open image in psp
        open a new image with transparency
        clone oringinal onto the transparent image
        use the magic wand to remove the white
        save the new image as a png (file > export > png optimiser > on colours tab set to 16.7 (24 bit) > transpancy tab set to alpha channel transparency)

            Tutorial Transparent Backgrounds

            Tutorial Transparent Backgrounds in three programs
            This will tell you how to do this in three different programs. I hope it helps!


            You can download the Gimp and it's free, not just a trial. It does most things the expensive programs do.

            Download at:http://www.gimp.org/windows/


            TUTORIAL FOR MAKING PNG TRANSPARENCIES USING GIMP

            1.Open your clipart in the Gimp program
            2.Go to layer & click on transparency, click to the right for menu
            3.Click on add alpha channel
            4.Go to tools-selection tools-fuzzy select
            5.Click on your white background
            6.Go to edit & click on cut
            7.Go to file-save as. Name your document. Choose folder you want to save in.
            8.Click on select file type-click on png- click on save.
            9.In the box that comes up, place a checkmark beside:
            save background color; save resolution; save color values.
            10.Hit ok
            This sounds like a lot of steps, but it's really fast & easy to do.

            Doing this will get rid of the dreaded "white box".

            PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS:


            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.

              White Backgrounds

              Thank you all so much. I have had a ball this afternoon. Daughter is wanting some backgrounds with disney characters on. So I am busy playing with cloning stamps and wizard tools which are so cool.
              I am also hoping to have attached them, will see if I have done it right.
              A huge thankful for all the help.
