erasing backgrounds but not your object.

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, Glad to finally join this community. Paint.net has been so awesome where much of my art for anime, furry fiction writing is concerned. One thing I have not picked up on yet is how to chose a completed color object on a white background and erase the background without having to go to magnification and hand trim around the border of the object. Clearing this up for me would save me a lot of time. Can anyone point me to a good tutorial?

I would use the Wand Tool set to a tolerance of 45 to erase the background and the remaining white between the characters legs.

Also I would use the eraser to remove the artifacts on the right side of the character.

You are welcome!
Here is a link to a great video tutorial explaining the Layers feature of Paint.NET.
It is mainly about using layers with photo images and not drawings, but the concepts are similar.
