jdanniel Posted June 26, 2010 Share Posted June 26, 2010 Hi everyone. I need help making the background of an image transparent. First of all: I read the tutorial for Alpha Mask, and tried using it, with no success. So, I need further help with this, please. Here's the image I want to make transparent. Quite simple. Here are my questions that I believe the tutorial does not currently address: 1. The image I am using is a JPG. Will the Alpha Mask tool work with JPG images, or do I have to convert the image to GIF format first? In the past, I've used only GIF images when working with transparent images. (I used Paint Shop Pro in the past.) 2. The tutorial does not specify whether or not to use the Mask File/Browse button to open something. Do I use that, or not? 3: It says to copy the image. And it says to check the Paste from Clipboard box. Then click OK. It does NOT say what to do next, if anything. What does the Paste from Clipboard box do, exactly? 4. Once I click OK, is the image modified? Do I save it? If so, what format do I save it in, and what transparency threshold do I use, if I save it as a GIF? Is using this Alpha Mask .dll tool the absolute simplest and quickest way to make an image transparent? Thank you very much. Jd Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
