    Default Transparent Backgrounds? Help

    I know this might be a dumb question but how are you making these embellishments with a transparent background? I have only been doing this for two weeks and I would love to do that.

    Default Making transparent files in Photoshop Elements

    Instructions to remove white background from Clipart or embellishments using Photoshop Elements
    1.Open your clipart picture or embellishment you want to make transparent.
    2.Double-click on background layer. It should say new layer O. Click ok.
    3.Click on the white background with the magic wand; you should see the “marching ants” now.
    4.Go to edit and click cut. You should now have a checkerboard background.
    5.Go to file and then to save for web. A new screen comes up. Be sure it says PNG-24 and there is a checkmark beside transparency. Click ok.
    6.You get your save box so you can choose the folder you want to save it in and a file name. Be sure the save type in PNG.

    You can also do this in GIMP and Paint Shop Pro, but it is done a little differently in each program.

    I hope this helps you.

    You are very welcome.

    You can get the GIMP program for free that will do the same thing. I can give you directions for it if you want me to. You can get the program at:

    Check it out and see what you think.
