One small suggestion....Please try using some tool like microsoft photo editor or similar tool for setting the transparent colour...Many free photo editing tools are also available on the net

Any simple graphics tool will solve this..

Was my suggestion useful???

1. open in Photoshop
2. Windows --> layer. Then double click the layer there, click OK the dialog box so that the "background" become "layer"
3. Select the white background. You can use magicwand tool, or if the object you want to keep is not white, you can use "select color--> white"
4. Edit --> clear.
5. safe as gif

How to change back ground color of an image?


Too many varibles ,but I'll give it a try. are there any layers? does the background layer ( the one called background at the bottom of the list in the LAyers palettte) have anything in it? area all the visible layers above the "background" transparent where they are "white"? If this is the case it's much easier than if any of the layers are "white" or some other color- then you need to select out the items you want not to change color, using any number of the available "selection" tools, from the area you want to change color- now that can be a challenge.

Cut image and transfer to transparent background using gimp


Hi Jody,

Gimp can be frustrating, but it's one of the most amazing and powerful free applications out there. You're right...what you're trying to do is very simple, but you need to know a few tricks to get it to work well.

First, you need to use .PNG as .JPG files don't support transparency. When you try to save a file in .JPG that has a transparency, or alpha, channel, you should be prompted to "export" the image by flattening all layers, which essentially replaces all the transparent areas with the current background color (usually white).

Second, there's a tool that's been added to the most recent versions of the Gimp that does exactly what you want to do. It's called the "Foreground Select Tool" and is really simple to use once you get the hang of it. This tool was added in Gimp 2.4, so you'll need at least that version or higher to use it. This tool uses a two-step process: first you draw a rough circle around the object you want to cut out (your daughter), then you "paint" over the foreground object so the tool can sample all the colors you're wanting to extract. This sounds strange until you do it...once you understand, it's really pretty simple. You can read the docs for this tool here. There's also a YouTube video that shows the basic process. Apparently no sound on that video, but at least you can see what to do.

Not sure what was happening when you tried to use the scissors. There are so many variables, it's hard to tell. You probably didn't need the extra step of adding a transparent layer...when you had your selection copied to the clipboard, you could have used "paste into" or "paste as new layer" or "paste as new image" to get what you want.

Let me know if this doesn't answser your question.

Image half tranperency


To do that open the image you want to make transparent, and the image you want to use as background. Copy and paste the image you want to make transparent on top of your background image. Select the Rectagular Marquee Tool. At the top Tool tip under the "Filter", you'll see the Feather property. Change it to 10px and select the hole image that will be transparent. Now go to Select->Inverse. You'll notice that only the corners of your image are selected. Select the Eraser tool and erase the corners. Note that the more Feather you use, the more area is selected and more smoothness you can have in your selection.

Images


if you want to import any image, it has to be saved with a transparent background, like a (.gif or .png) image.. for example if you have an image i.e plane.jpeg you need to open it in an image editing software like adobe photoshop and delete the background save the image as plane.png and import the plane.png to flash. You can edit the picture in flash also to remove the background.. but the process is not easy and its time consuming. so try that workaround like i said before let us know if it worked.
