So when I use Gimp, I do the same thing when I turn images transparent:

Select it by color, then hit clear.

But now instead of turning it transparent, it turns into my secondary color. Can anybody help me?


You need to add an alpha channel to your layer.

In the layers panel, right click the layer and choose "Add Alpha Channel".

Now when you delete/clear, it will delete to transparency.
