Change a b/w image background to transparent.

Recommended Posts

I guess I could... but it seems like this should be so easy.

Restating what I want to easily do - I would like to take a 2-color image and change one of the colors to transparent. Hence, in the example of what I want to accomplish, I have a black image on a white background. I want to easily change the white background to transparent.

This is very easy to do in some other applications, none of which I have access to anymore.

open image in PdN, use magic wand seletor to select the white secton, the hit the delete key on your keyboard. you will have to save image as a gif or png, but IE doesn't support transparencies for the png's. Hopes that was what your looking for.

EDIT: if there are white parts scattered throughout the pic, the press shift key while using selector wand. this will select all points in the pic that have the same(or close) value as the point you selected. to limit/extend the selction adjust the tolerence bar.
