Logo I'm working with is a drawing of hands holding a heart. Drawing is open at the wrists, so cutting it out is not an option. How can I make the logo itself (which is red and white) show, and the background transparent--as if it was printed on clear plastic?I have some jpeg files, and I want to be able to use this in word as well as CS6. I do not have the original artwork.
Some programs allow to set the transparency of an image after importing (InDesign, Illstrator, ...) - this is the easy way.
If your software does not, try this: Open in Photoshop, double click on the Background-Layer (to make it a 'normal' layer), set the transparency and save it as .png file. JPG does not support transparency.
