Well...I'll have to remember that for the next time I erased that a little bit of a white afterwards with Background Eraser Tool. Thank you for the tipAbsolutely how #gedstar did it - but also take the tick out of the "Contiguous" box and it will catch the bit of white in the loop of the lead (but I am sure you got that bit anyway!)
gedstar Also color range is also a good one right ??
LOL! I use it all the time with solid white/color backgrounds, it seems to work really well. It is a destructive technique, so I will always duplicate the original and use the duplicate to create a layer mask if needed. If there are light areas adjacent to the white background, sometimes it will remove those as well and adjusting the tolerance doesn't always cure the problem.Thats a feature I never used before Sam and it worked nicely and clean.
Never too old to learn...
Just curious, do you know why the background always fills with white when you save files as .jpg? Even if you have no background in your original image?
Because jpg/jpeg file format does not support transparency.Just curious, do you know why the background always fills with white when you save files as .jpg? Even if you have no background in your original image?
I have to do this this technique (savings as a png after eliminating the background) all the time for myself and others.
Ah...I see that tool also doesn't have the "catch the bit of white in the loop of the lead" checkbox!...For a job of just removing a solid white BG, I would just use the Magic Eraser Tool...
