How do I do this?

Recommended Posts

I want everything transparent on the new layer except for the black lines of the original drawing (the background).

I know I could erase the white area, but I wanted to know if there was a faster way. And the tricky part is that the drawing is a person. It's simple black-on-white lineart, but I'm having a hard time getting rid of the white.

Use the magic wand and raise the tolerance until you get a nice area. If the tolerance (on the 'Tools' window above the colors) is set at 0, it'll only select one pixel. If you raise the tolerance to 100, it'll select the whole image. I tend to like the tolerance at around 20 or 25 to erase white backgrounds on scanned images. That's the fastest way I've found, although you'll still be doing some clicking. :D
