GIMP :: Background In Image Change From White To Transparent

Dec 29, 2013

what I want is for a single image that has a white background to be changed into an image with a transparent background. Just the white background, not the things in the image. (I mean like when the image is in a word document that has a black background, the image will only show the person inside it and the white background of the image can not be seen.) Is there a way I can do this on GIMP?

GIMP :: Change White Background On A Picture To Transparent

Aug 16, 2012

I'm trying to change the white background on a picture of myself to be transparent. When I use the "Color to Alpha" tool, it works, but when I paste the photo into word/powerpoint/etc not only does it turn the white background 100% transparent but it also makes the whole image slightly transparent.

How can I make the white background disappear without making the whole image transparent? I want to use color to alpha because if I simply use the magic wand tool and delete the white area there is still some white showing through my hair.

GIMP :: Changing A White Background To Transparent

Jan 20, 2012

as an example using a earlier post "Changing a white background to transparent (.png)" I have zoomed part of the edge of the logo.It varies from white through grey then up to the logo colour.My Query how do you decide at what point in this change do you stop the transparent section? As when you put colours or pictures as a background you would I think have to reblend the edges for each type of background.

Photoshop :: How To Change White Background With Text To Transparent

Sep 2, 2013

I have a jpg file (part of our logo) white background with black text and I would like to change it to transparent background and keep the black text (to be able to insert it on a cup image).
I tried to change it in photoshop, however, when I slide the "opacity" and "fill", the text got ligther as well.
Do I need to have the original psd.file to be able to do that, or can you please lead me through with jpg file? (I tried to save the jpg to psd and png, but it did not work.)
I looked on one of your videos, but I could not find one of the features under "Select" tab.
My plan is to recreate the text to have the transparent background if necessary (It would be great if I can avoid that). However, how do I find out which font was originaly used? Does photoshop has this feature, or do I need to go trough each of the font one-by-one?
how do I change space between letters (to have them more tight. I am not able to find it.

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 :: Change Background Of Transparent PNG To That Of PDF

Jun 21, 2011

I created a transparent digital signature png from a scanned original handwritten signature. It works fine for adding a signature to pdf documents with a white background.

For those times when the background is other shading/pattern, say a 'grayscale' looking shading/pattern...I want to 'adapt' the background of the signature.png to that of the pdf.

So in practice open the pdf, select an area that has different shading/pattern up to the clipboard, and make the background of the signature the same as that in clipboard; with hopes the background will 'blend' into the pdf.

GIMP :: Unable To Render Background Of Image Transparent

Jun 8, 2013

I have been playing with GIMP now for several months and love the program. One problem I have run into is I cannot figure out render the background of an image transparent so it can be merged with another image. Now, I have tried to read the instructions numerous times, but I have no background in understanding what a path is and several other terms. I have failed time and again and finally decided this is not something I can learn to do on my own.

Warning: I'll be honest. I have no experience in any form of image manipulation and even simple things might need to be explained.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Change Image Background To White

Jun 17, 2013

I want to change the backgroun color to a solid white before i save an image of an .iam to file.

so far:

Inventor.Color bgColor = InvApp.TransientObjects.CreateColor(255, 255, 255);
Camera.SaveAsBitmap("C:\Users\Dan\Desktop\test.jpg", 800, 800, bgColor);

This does nothing to the image, same gradient BG set from the colorschemes.

i tried:

InvApp.ColorSchemes.BackgroundType = BackgroundTypeEnum.kOneColorBackgroundType;

just for giggles and it does in fact change the BG to a solid grey. But after that, i see no way to change the BG. 


does not work either as the .Item sub class does not even under the color schemes object. im sure i am passing the wrong color object to the save as bitmap method anyway -

GIMP :: Making Scanned Image Background White

Sep 20, 2013

I am currently running Gimp 2.8 and am a new user. How to make an image's background white. I have a watercolor painting that I have scanned into my computer, however you can see some shadows from the grain and edges of the paper. I have tried some different ways to change the background completely to white, but I feel like maybe I'm missing out on a quicker method. So far, the one I've been working on is taking me longer than it took to even draw and paint the picture in the first place. That method was to use the fuzzy (lasso) tool, make a rough outline of my painting, use the quick mask button in the bottom left hand corner and follow up by using the pencil tool to make a more precise line around the image.

Another tutorial I found showed I should use the Select by color tool, select an area that should be white in my image and press Ctrl+x. However, when I pushed ctrl+x, I saw no change in my background and my image remained outlined in the shifting lines that the select by color tool causes.

Is there a way to achieve a plain white background with out going through the long process of tracing around the detailed image?

It should be noted that I'm not hugely familiar with Gimp as I've only used it a couple of times with tutorials. So, the more basic you can describe something, the better. I am also running Windows 7.
