Photoshop :: Faded Photo Edges To Transparent Background

Jan 12, 2013

I've been asked to create a set of photos with a faded background. My boss gave me the attached image as an example. I initially thought it would be fairly easy. I could add a layer mask and a Gaussian Blur. I have successfully faded the edges, but I have only managed to do it with a color fill layer, I can't work out how to get the background transparent without it looking jagged and ugly. I need to effect to look like the attachment.

Photoshop :: Web Image (GIF) With Transparent Background Showing White Edges

Feb 7, 2011

I'm having this odd problem that I can't seem to figure out. I have a web image (gif format) with a transparent background (deleted the background layer before saving as a gif), and when the image is against a darker webpage, the text of the image (that is basically all the image is, just blended text) has white pixels around the edges of the text. Did I do something wrong when I deleted the background, or how I saved the file???

GIMP :: How To Cut Edges To Transparent Background

Jul 17, 2012

I have an image I want to cut the white space out of and make it transparent. I can use the magic wand tool to highlight everything I want to remove, but when I hit delete on my keyboard nothing happens.

It's originally a JPG image with a white background that I am pasting into GIMP.

I attempted to magic wand what I wanted to keep and then to copy/paste it to a new document, but the image is too intense to highlight it, it is much easier to just highlight the whitespace surrounding it.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 :: Rough Edges On Logo With Transparent Background

Jul 6, 2013

I'm practicing using Coreldraw and made a logo with a transparent background.  It's a combination of rectangles and text.  I exported the logo as a png.  Everything looks fine in corel, but when I upload it to the web the edges are very ragged on the rectangles and text.  I tried it with and without converting to curves and the same thing happens.

Photoshop :: Feathering, Faded Edges...

Sep 30, 2006

I want the edges of a picture to fade into the background. I know I can use the erase tool to obtain this effect. A friend of mine showed me a few years back a different and somewhat easier/quicker way. She showed me to use the rectangle/elliptical tool and select the area you want to show. Then select inverse. After that use the feather option to round the edges/amount of feathering. My question is what would be the next step? I know there is something else that needs to be done to actually fade the border, but I can't for the life of me remember.

Photoshop :: Import Photo With Transparent Background?

Apr 3, 2012

I'm trying to import a photo created in photoshop with a transparent background to Adobe Flash and I'm getting a noticeable halo around the photo.  This is exported as a PNG-24.  I've tried going in to the photoshop file and taking off a little bit, but it still gives me the same outcome.  I've also tried exporting as a GIF, and a PNG-8 with a matte.  No matter what I do, it leaves the halo.

Photoshop Elements :: Creating Transparent Background On A Photo?

Feb 27, 2013

I have photoshop elements 7.0 and I am having difficulty making making a photo with a transparent background.  According to the tutorials I watched, I am supposed to bring the desired photo which I do and can be seen on the right in the layers box dialogue.  Then there I create a copy which is "unlocked" which shows up on my screen.  Then, I select the brush tool and I select the areas of the photo which I wish to make transparent and then hit the letter "D" on my keyboard, or the delete button.  Although the background is seen gone in the photo in my layers box, the background is still shown in my photo on my screen.  The perforated lines are seen and although I keep pressing the D button it does not work.

Paint Shop Pro :: Lift Image From Photo And Then Do Transparent Background?

Nov 2, 2011

I want to lift image from photo and then do transparent background.

Is there any knack of selecting the item from the image cleanly. In my case its a dog. I use the lasso to go around the object but that leaves a 2mm space where the background shows through.

(Is there a way to use the lasso to make a partial selection then remove your finger from the mouse and then continue your selection from where you left off ?)

After I have Deleted the inverted selection I use the Background remover to remove the remaining 2mm of background around the dog.Again is there a knack to using this tool ? I Googled and it said to keep the removal circule half in and half out of the actual image. Also is ther a correct setting in the menu bar for the BG/removal tool..Im just experimenting.

my settings at this moment are.

size 18
Hardness 100
Step 10
Density 100
Thickness 100
Rotation 0
Opacity 100
Tolarance 75
Sharpness 100
Sampling: Continuous
Limits: Contiguous
Boxes not ticked. Auto tollerance and Use all Layers.
Box ticked: Ignore Lightness.

Photoshop :: Faded Edges On Images In Collage With 4 Images

Jul 13, 2013

I'm making a collage containing 4 images with different resolution. I want each image to have faded edges (to white) and I'm using gradient tool to accomplish this. The problem is that since the images have different resolution the gradient tool gives different result on each image even though I make the same "swipe". Is there another way of accomplishing these faded edges, equally looking and of the same size? The faded edges (to white) will, as you might have understood already, constitute the limit between the four pictures, that is, a white cross.

GIMP :: How To Fix Partially Faded Photo

Jun 1, 2013

I'm working on old vacation photos from the '70s (back when I could afford to take vacations). I'm now working on the first of what will probably be several that are faded, but not over the entire image - just parts of it.

I'm doing free selecting and playing with Levels, Curves, and Color Balance, but nothing seems to be working well. I think this is because some colors have faded more than others so there are areas that look purple when they should be brown or a mixture of colors.

Here's an example (which I hope will actually show):   

It's not a very interesting photo but it's from my very first trip to Europe so I'd kind of like to make it prettier.

Photoshop :: Transparent Edges Of A JPG

Feb 5, 2009

I have a high quality but small jpg picture that I need to put onto my website, the background colour is blue.

I want to blur all 4 edges of the picture so when I put it on the website page the background shows through with a nice faded effect into full opacity of the picture in the centre of the image.

I'm sure its pretty straightforward, but I can't work it out. I played around with the marquee tool but couldn't delete the outer edges like I had hoped.

I'm pretty sure it will need to become a .png of .gif to show the transparency but I'm worried about the quality then too.

Photoshop :: Transparent Edges

Jul 27, 2009

I want to fade (make transparent) the edges of my image which is a pasted one in the whole document in order the image's edges to smoothly  become transparent and faint so the image will blend with the background in the document. Do you know how I can do this? Is there a filter which I could apply to the whole image, or to every edge of the pasted image?

GIMP :: Overlay Portion Of Image With Faded Map With Non-transparent Part Of Second Image

Apr 4, 2012

I have a PNG image with only one layer as a start point. It has a faded map on it.

I have a second PNG image with a hex grid on it. I do colour to Alpha to establish transparency on the hex grid for white filled hexes (others are not filled with white).

Now, I wish to overlay a portion of the first image with the faded map with the non-transparent part of the second image.

So I select by colour (for the hexes not filled with white) on the second image (the overlay) and I then paste to the first image (after creating a transparency layer and selecting it to receive the overlay).

I see the desired overlay section (minus any transparent stuff as expected), however it is centered over the map in the first image, not where I want it to be. It is a floating selection and must be anchored. So I select the anchor icon in the layer dialog and I think I anchor it into the transparency layer on the first image (that's what I'm trying to do anyway).

And then my problem:

I want to move the thing I just pasted in to the right place with respect to the underlying faded map. I attempt to use the move tool, but all I move is the background map (pretty much the opposite of what I want).

Nothing I do seems to let me reselect the pasted-in overlay so that I can move it.

Why I can't ever reposition the pasted in overlay? It should be in the transparency layer I created but even if I select all, I don't seem to be able to move anything other than the background image.

Photoshop :: Creating Smooth Edges On A Transparent

Apr 6, 2009

I need an image on my website with a transparent background. I first tried creating this as a gif, but it looked horrible over my website background image. Then I tried saving it as a png, which looked much better, but it has jagged edges. What is the right way to create a transparent image in PS so that it will have smooth borders? It is basically a circle, about 60 px wide, with a solid color in the center and a border of about 2 px. Nothing fancy.It looks perfect in PS but once I embed it on my page over the background image, it looks a mess.
