Getting rid of white background

Recommended Posts

I've been looking around but I can't find anything that teaches me how to do this:

How do i turn this: aaaaac8.png

to this: dpmfa204.png

Using the magic wand, select the white area surrounding the image. You should get "marching ants" and the white area should turn slightly blue showing that it is selected. If the whole image is selected then you may need to turn down the tolerance.

Press the delete key.

Now you should see a checkerboard surrounding your image instead of a white background. The checkerboard is where your image will be transparent against other backgrounds.
