  • background out of picture?

    Is there a way to "cut out" an object in a picture and only have that on a page and no the background?

    Thanks

      You can use the "CROP" tool under effects..But it only does a rectangular shape..You would need a FREEHAND tool to be more specific!! But you can in SBM do that much..

        Remove background

        This was previously posted in SBM. Search for "transparency" using the SEARCH tool. That is what you do when "cutting" the background from an image.

        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.

        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.

        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".
