You cannot see it when it's on a white background, but Can someone tell me how I can erase the boarder from this image in Gimp? I want it to be a perfect circle. I'm going to be using this with a colored background.

    Maybe it would help if you posted this image with a background that wasn't white?

I figured it out. I used the fuzzy selection tool, set the threshold to 0 then selected the whit background. After that you simply create an alpha channel and delete.

Anyone else know another way?

    Hey thank you, that is a great idea. My edges came out very rough. I will try this approach. Commented Aug 5, 2015 at 15:29
