Here's the answer: Make a layer with the stuff you want in the image. Make a selection for the desired alpha channel. Make the selection a "layer mask" for the image layer. Right click the layer mask and "Apply layer mask". Now the magic starts: Go to "Layer", and at the bottom: "Matting", then choose "Remove black matte". You are welcome!

Alternatively - you can just use the Select by color tool (just next to the magic wand on the tool box) - and click on any white part of the image. This will select the white areas - then, just copy and paste on the target image. The "color to alpha" as @PieBie put it, is more precise, and better to remove a solid background when you want to keep a lot of ...

Easiest way to remove one color is: Colors > color to alpha select black (HTML: 000000) ok > ok done Then you can copy-paste the layer onto any other image.

Desktop Wallpapers can't have transparent backgrounds. They need solid images or they'll insert white as you stated in your question. Same for the video editing software. They use black color as a background by default. You must have some layers to see your transparent image.

Blending modes within Photoshop do NOT translate to PNG format. It is not a matter of "how". It is a matter if it being impossible based on current technology. In order for a PNG to work properly all your Photoshop layers need to be set to Normal for the blending mode. This means you need to avoid using any blending modes when setting things up in ...

Set the layer blending mode to multiply to make white transparent and to screen mode to make black transparent.

You can load the luminosity of an image as a selection, then create a mask and invert the mask. It sounds to me like you really want luminosity, not "white" data. Command/Ctrl the RGB Channel Thumbnail in the Channels Panel. To load a selection. (This essentially loads the L channel from the L*A*B data) Highlight the image layer in the Layer Panel Click ...

The full context is as follows: Use alpha values for grey text, icons, and dividers To convey a hierarchy of information, you can use different shades for text. The standard alpha value for text on a white background is 87% (#000000). Secondary text, which is lower in the visual hierarchy, should have an alpha value of 54% (#000000). Text ...

The alpha value is used in the RGBA colour space to indicate the transparency of a colour. The alpha value goes from 0 to 1 where 0 is completely transparent and 1 not transparent at all. This allows to do "alpha compositing" which, in lay terms, is the process of placing an image on top of a background and to combine the colours to create the illusion of ...

Create a text layer with your text. Create a white-filled layer Command/Ctrl-click the text layer thumbnail in the Layers Panel Highlight the white layer and click the New Mask icon at the bottom of the Layers Panel. Invert the layer mask (Image > Adjustments > Invert) Turn off visibility for the text layer. You can then unlink the mask with its ...

Select the white object Choose "Path" > "Stroke to path" Select both objects and choose "Path" > "Difference". (The white object will need to be on top, which clearly it is in this case.)

Blending modes do not translate to PNG images. I would guess that you've se the shadow to Multiply within Photoshop. Your shadows need to be set to Normal for the blending mode. This may mean you need to better mask the shadow layer or remove the shadow entirely and recreate it without the white areas.

I would prefer select the white Area with the magic wand tool and go to Select > Refine Edge or press Ctrl / Cmd+Alt+R and adjust the setting as you may want.

In addition to Scott's answer, you could use the Blending Options for the layer. Just lowering blend if option: Gave me a pretty good result:

There's no solid way to get the same appearance as the multiply blend mode. But you can get exceptionally close with very little effort. Just Command/Ctrl-click the thumbnail for the Blue Channel in the Channel Panel. (should then see marching ants) Highlight the layer in the Layer Panel and add a new mask. Invert the mask Use Levels or Curves to boost ...

When you place a photoshop file in illustrator you get a window where you select the photoshop data. Select transparency settings and choose the relevant layers.

I realize that you are new to Photoshop but you should learn to embrace the pen tool. It is no fun to use at first, but after practice it is your best friend when you need to be exact with your silos (silhouettes.) Take the time if you can to practice with it. It has been an invaluable tool in my design career. And then I would follow others suggestions ...

To soften the edge, try Feathering the selection before doing the deletion. Once your selection is made, press Shift+F6 (Or Select...Modify Selection...Feather) and choose a radius of 1px. Then do your deletion - it will be softer around the edges. Here's what I got with your image: Another option is using the "Refine Edge" tool (located on the right ...

The easiest way to do this is to set Blend mode of the circle to Erase. The other way would be to Punch Paths (on Path panel).

Assuming there is nothing wrong with your image, you should be able to just do Place and in the dialog make sure the Link button is checked.

You can actually try just layer->transparency->color to alpha and pick a medium color from the paper tone. This will make just that tone transparent, and preserve the texture noise, so that you can add other colors behind and still "feel" like it is paper. To further remove "whiteish" pixels, just repeat the process picking one of the remaining tones ...

Ok. I think it might be a file format issue. Make sure you are exporting a PNG file from Photoshop. Once the file is created, then simply place it in your illustrator art board. It should work.

First, let me begin by saying I'm less familiar with Gimp than I am with Photoshop, but the concept works the same way. This is the best method I've found to easily create detailed masks. Step 1: Prepare Mask Boost the contrast between lights and darks. Desaturate and adjust curves. Step 2: Create Mask Select all and paste layer into layer mask. ...

Alright I'll make this with limited screenshots since I don't use Gimp but I would hope this all exists in Gimp: Convert to Black and White If Gimp has it, tweak particularly the Yellow when converting to Black and White to remove a lot of it. (Update: Hue/Saturation... Yellow before we convert to B/W via Takkat in comments) Then adjust the levels to ...
