    Question GFX Help

    I need to make images with a white background have a transparent background but I don't know how. I have Adobe PS installed but I can't seem to find any tuts on Google. I need some help so if anyone could explain the process for me you'll get my respect (Any maybe Rep? ).

    Thanks General Section and RIP GFX.

    Are you saying you want the white background to be transparent?

    See background, and background copy? Right click whichever layer is the background, which I am assuming is your base layer. Anyway, right click then hit duplicate layer, then the original background layer hit the eye, so it hides it from sight, then on the copy of the background go to opacity and change it to whatever you want it to be?

    *Edit* Or are you saying, you want to take something out of an image, and make everything else around said something transparent?

    No the first idea was correct. I have this image but it has a white background and I want it to be gone. Ill give this a try!

    Here's an example of what im talking about: I just want to make the white space around the circle transparent.

    Use the tool I show in the first picture, the elliptical marquee tool, make it fit. You might have to play with it a little, and draw a bigger circle, but yeah. Once you do that, and it fits right click inside the circle and hit "Layer via cut", and then delete the "Background", and you're done.

    Okay firstly, remove and background from the item you want in your case the wand, just use magic eraser or what ever. Secondly save the file as a .png once it is complete your image will have a transparent background.
