Add transparency while maintaining color

Recommended Posts

I am trying to duplicate some business cards and have run into an issue when adding the logo. I need to make the white background of the logo transparent, which I can do using multiply mode just fine. However, the color behind the logo is a dark gray and it warps the colors in the logo and makes them much darker than we want. I need these to look neat, so something like cutting the background out probably won't work. 


Is there a way to make the logo background transparent while maintaining the colors?

Try this plugin - it's simple to use and really works well.

You might also like the Grim Color Reaper plugin and the Cut Color plugin.

I'm not sure how you normally cut out images, but you can try these techniques :


If you cut out images, I suggest these plugins to help the edge's of the cutout look nicer :
