Transparent Photoshop Backgrounds

Posted 29 July 2002 - 10:49 PM

Well, if you're on a PC running Windows then you can open up MS Photoeditor and then use the transparency tool to make the white parts transparent.

lol. Its after midnight. Woulda called cap but your mom probably wouldn't help me. And I tried the magic wand before I posted and it didn't work. So...you were no help :P
Codeman, however, was :) Thanks. It worked like a charm.

Go figure that it was that simple. I was trying everything that was complicated...

It's funny but I still use paint to resize the canvas that way "some cropping" won't occur. Funny, I have a $600 program but I still use paint for stuff. :)
