Making Backgrounds of Images Transparent
Posted 19 January 2007 - 11:23 PM
Step 1: Go to File-->Open :FileOpen: and open the image in which you want to make the background transparent.
Step 4: Select the Magic Wand tool and set the Tolerance level to 25% (or anything depending on your image. I would recommend 25% for sprites/pixel images.). Click somewhere on the background.
Step 5: Go to Edit-->Cut. :EditCut: You should see a "checkerboard" pattern where the image is now transparent.
Step 6: File-->Save As...
Select a file type of PNG or GIF before clicking the Save button.
This is a good tut for newbies who want to learn how to do this.

Re Hannahs tut
I tried it to remove the box from behind the image but it did not work - using the magic wand. I am VERY new to this program and would really like to know how to just have the image that I have cropped out and not the box in the back ground. In "dummy" language please :?
Your image is going to be a little bit harder because part of the Wolf's face is somewhat white. I would recommend using a tolerance level of about 15%

As for saves. right until the final version, i tend to use the native format, and THEN when needed, i save as whats needed. makes more sense that way ;p

It not that I haven't considered saving it as different file format...it just that it is the mandatory file format for a guild emblem I'm making for a online game I'm playing.

Hard to do on a smaller image, have to blur or feather to get a nice edge. If possible always try to use a large image you can edit the surrounding areas and then rescale it down IMO.
