Photoshop: Transparent Background Tutorial


Now that you have selected and saved the image, locate your layers panel and double-click the word that says “background”. This will create a pop-up box to name your new layer. Name it, or don’t, then press OK.I am pretty sure this happens to all of us at some point. You might be trying to prepare a picture for a presentation, or adding a logo to your website. Maybe you need it for a collage you’re putting together. And then there is the background. Sigh. It’s such a pain. Knowing how to get rid of the background in Photoshop is easy and it’s a skill you’re going to be thrilled to have. We will also touch on some other transparency based techniques so you can say you know it all. Making transparent backgrounds in Photoshop is just the beginning. Learn the foundations of Photoshop in this tutorial.

stepMake an existing image’s background transparent

  • First, you’ll need to find the image you wish to edit. Go ahead and hit “O” to open an image, or click on File–> Open.
  • It’s probably a good idea to save this image by clicking on File–> Save as. This means your original image will always remain the same, regardless what you do to it here.
  • Drag this new layer (layer 1) below the current layer (the one next to your image thumbnail that you renamed or kept as layer 0).
  • Click on the layer next to your thumbnail to highlight it. Press the “W” key which is a short code for your “quick selection tool”. Left click and drag this over the part of your image you want to make transparent. For this image, I started from the top left corner and slowly drag the quick selection tool inwards until it covered the space I wanted. If you accidently get marching ants around your entire picture, press CTRL+Z to go back a step. This is your shortcut for “undo”.imagephotoshop What are marching ants?

  • Now, the easy part. Push delete. You should see white and grey checkered boxes where your background once was. This is indicative of a transparent background. You did it! Repeat the above steps with any other space in the background you wish to remove, as I have done below.
  • If you are happy with the results, then go to File–> Save. I prefer to save mine for the web. To do that click on File–> Save for Web. I select JPEG from the dropdown list at the top right of the save box. You can mess with the other setting if you know what you’re doing – if not, just push OK to save.

Create a new image with a transparent background

So now you know how to get rid of a background of an image that’s already been made. It’s really helpful for a lot of scenarios, but what happens when you’re designing your own graphic in Photoshop and you want to make sure it has a transparent background? There’s an answer for that and it’s one of a couple options: initial transparency, eraser, deleting background or lasso. Let’s go through these.

FYI, just some addressing background

by mshanahan

You don't need to XXX out 192.168.XX.XXX. the 192.168.????.???? is a private address group for your lan. (All my LANS are 192.168.SOMETHING, and I have at times had as many as 6 routers running on my LAN, with only the first one after the DSL modem being the DHCP server) The linksys router will use NAT (Network Address Translation) to hide that from the internet.
Hope this helps.
PS: there are some tutorials available on the web for free on addressing. I know my netgear equipment has one on at least 2 of the CDs for the routers that I have.
Good Luck, and yes Linksys will help you, but in some cases free support stops at 90 days after purchase (Netgear for instance), but I assume that you just purchased these.
