Removing the white background from copy/paste item

Recommended Posts

Hi, new user here.

I have copied a jpg photo (print screen) onto the paint canvas. I'd like to cut the face from the photo and paste it onto a ppt. slide.

I use the lasso key and trace around the face. I cut and paste the face onto the dark background of a ppt slide.

The problem is the white box around the image (face) is visible! How do I paste just the lasso'd item or remove the white box from the ppt slide?

Go to http://searchpaint.net and look for "cutting out images the easy way."

In the future, please use search before asking a question on this forum. :-) Thanks!
