How to make a white background Transparent

I would like to to select the blocks and enclosed data to copy and paste in a poster, leaving out the white background.  In other words make the white background transparent. 
This is just a plain low res jpg.
This seems like it would be pretty easy but not for me.  Is there a tutorial that could guide me through this?
Thank you for any guidance you can give me.

I'm probably not being clear about what I'm trying to do.  Here's a typical poster.  I use the magnetic lasso to select an image, copy and paste it resulting in this.
This time it's to be a team picture with small head shots of each player, action photos in the background, similar to this.  I can do all that but I wanted the tournament chart to lay on top of the background with just the boxes and enclosed info showing.  I know I can use the magnetic lasso or the poly lasso but I don't have enough patience for that.

    You can make the background any color but not transparent. If you need a transparent background, for putting images on a web page or blog; you need to make the collage in Photoshop, Photoshop Elements or similar editing software.

  • How to make a .jpg background transparent?

    Windows XP; using Photoshop Elements 2.0 :  is it possible to edit a .jpg so that the background (white, in this instance) can be transparent so that when I copy the part of the graphic I want and paste it elsewhere (another layer in Photoshop or Illustrator) that the white background disappears and doesn't block out the layer underneath?  Thanks.

    You can also copy the picture,  including the white, to the destination picture. The new picture will be on a separate layer. On that layer delete the white portion which will be replaced by transparency. Depending on the particular case you can select the white and delete it; or select the subject, invert the selection and delete it.

  • How to make a BufferedImage background transparent?

    I try to draw an image from a BufferedImage to a JPanel, which the original image background is transparent, but when I draw on the JPanel, its background becomes black color. How can I make it transparent?
    My code is something like this:
    img = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getImage("tiger.gif");
    try {
    MediaTracker tracker = new MediaTracker(this);
    tracker.addImage(img, 0);
    } catch (Exception e) {}
    int width = img.getWidth(this);
    int height = img.getHeight(this);
    bImage = new BufferedImage(width, height, BufferedImage.TYPE_INT_RGB);
    bImageG2D= bImage.createGraphics();
    bImageG2D.drawImage(img, 0, 0, null);
    public void paintComponent(Graphics g) {
    Graphics2D g2 = (Graphics2D)g;
    g2.drawImage(bImage, 0, 0, null);
    Thanks for the help!

    It would be a great help if you can share your code of 'transparent bufferedimage' with me. I have been trying to create a transparent gif since long. Now I think I can create a transparent bufferedimage and display it.

    I have created a small animated logo in flash and when I put

    I remember about 2 months ago I found a way to make that
    white background transparent by typing a parameter in DW...But I
    dont remember what I typed...
    It was something like WMODE and then for the value
    TRANSPARENT or something.
    Can anyone please remind me how to do this. Thanks

    i have a line drawing (black on white paper) i have scanned and need to make the white paper transparent, maintaining the line drawing, can i and then HOW can i do this in PS? this is for my business logo. ive used it for years but with a solid background. id like to have it just be the drawing over my photos with a transparent background.

    First let me apologize for posting a reply that was only suitable for advanced users.  Photoshop is broad and powerful therefore has a huge learning curve.  In fact I would state no one knows and uses all of Photoshop.  When we first get Photoshop it intimidate us and we're very uncomfortable using it.  Many thing are not intuitive there in much learning involved.  After some time we begin to know something and we are able to do some thing.  Learning become rapid and we start playing in Photoshop.  It is very important to play with Photoshop.  Playing with Photoshop and asking for help with in forums like this IMO is the best way to learn. 
    Photoshop Power lies in layers, selection and automation.  However it takes knowledge to use photoshop well so most powerful tool you have ins Photoshop is the gray matter between your ears.  Most at one time or another want to watermark or put a logo on their image.  So its best to automate this process. All run into a problem in the process. "Size"  We find our assets vary in size and aspect ratios. Landscape, Portraits, Panoramas and others. This complicates automation.  Vector graphics works best when size vary greatly.  If you can not work out how to create a vector solution like a custom shape.  Create your Logo and watermark large thing scale down better the up. Text scale well for text uses vectors graphics however if you rasterize text it will not scale well.
    I do not type or do English well so let me do some screen captures.  I can not stress enough how important Black, White, Grays and Blending is when it come to image processing.  Become friends with Multiply, Screen, Overlay and Luminosity blending.....
    However when there is a white or black background though you can blend them you can not add a style like a drop shadow, emboss or make it invisible setting fill to 0 so only the style is visible.  When there is contrast between the logo and background it is easy to separate the two. To select the background and delet it to have the logo with a transparent background.  Many tools can be used to create the selection hee I use my action kill white.
    Vector Shape would work better for scaling However it would be best to create the logo from scratch in a vector program like illustrator but I never had the resources to justify the Creative suite. I only had Photoshop.  Recently Adobe gave me and other a year subscription to the creative suite for our participation here.  I still have not installed anything but Photoshop,  A while back I found a program that can create vector patf for black and white art work.  It will not be as good as using something like illustrator. However vector paths can be edited in Photoshop and cleaned up some. Here is the PSD it 13MB because od the gradient

  • How to make opaque white transparent?

    I have a JPEB, black words, hand lettered, on white.
    When I place it into an InDesign doc, on a solid color, the white background, being opaque, covers the solid color.
    How do I make that opaque white into a transparent background? Two manuals do not give me a clue.

    No.. Photoshop transparency is automatically seen in Indesign for .psd files. All you need to make the background transparent in Photoshop.

  • Make white background transparent

    This Q must be very old. Why can´t someone invent a sigle button for this I have tried all the things by the book but still when I try to lay text image with white background over an image the white is still there althoug I made it transparent. tried to sa for web as png-8, png-24 and gif. nothing works. To use magic wand gives bad result when applied to text? So what can I do? I am trying to place text over image. I know I could write it over the image but I need the text as a transparent layer some place else.

    Use one of the selection tools, e.g. selection brush, lasso tool, to select the object
    Place the object on its own layer -  Layer menu>new>layer via copy or CTRL+J
    Place a blank layer between the background layer and the layer with the object, then place your new background on this blank layer.
    You should have 3 layers: Background layer that you started with, the blank layer with substitute background, layer with object at top.
    Here I selected the swan
    Placed a blank layer below the layer with the swan
    Filled this layer with a gradient for demonstration.

  • Best Illustrator method to make a logo background "transparent..."

    I have seen that there are several posts regarding "transparent backgrounds," but but they're difficult to follow. I apologize if this is old territory. If there is a solution somewhere already, I'd appreciate your pointing me towards it.
    I'm using AI within CS5.5 but new to it. I am importing/converting a JPG file to vector format. The image is a logo with a large black circle boundry and a white opaque background. The background elements inside the boundry circle are also opaque white, and I wish to leave that as is. The edges of the circle touch the  boundries of the JPG file tangentially by about 100px or so on each side when the JPG is viewed at original size.
    My objective is to make everything outside the boundry circle a "transparent" background. What would be the best/easiest way to do this within AI? Is there, for example, a tool that will draw a circle that I can expand to get on the edge of the black boundry circle, and then make everything outside it transparent?
    Thanks very much.

    The cleanest/best way to vectorize  the black circle, and most likely the other shapes, is to recreate, using the appropriate tools, thereby replacing the original raster parts.
    You may use the raster image as a locked template, maybe on its own lower layer.
    In that case there will be no outlying parts to get rid of.
    But f you just wish to get rid of the outlying part, you may create a circle (with the Ellipse Tool) following the outer rim of the black circle, select that and the image, and Object>Clipping mask>Make.
    OK, a quick progress report...
    I am now back at my main desk and in front of my instance of AI. I am attempting to implement the above suggestion of using the clipping mask. First, a bit more background.
    The object I'm trying to edit is a JPEG file with a logo design... a  black circle with a flat b/w design inside on an opaque white background. There is only one (1) layer, and AI reports the background as being "locked." When I open the JPEG file in AI, it appears as 100%, RGB raster (file is 2341x2344px original size). When I hover over the design with the "select" tool, I see a blue square outline (I assume this is the JPEG file boundry). The edges of the circle circumfrence touch each edge the blue square outline.
    I see how to invoke the elipse tool,  and how to make a clipping mask (I have to remember to select more than one object, or I'll get an error).  But what do I do from there? How do I save just the part that remains (after clipping) on a transparent background? Everything I've tried so far seems to save it on the white opaque background.
    I'm stuck at this point. All help appreciated.

  • White background transparency and black box outline removal ?

    I need to know how to do two things with Illustrator CS (yes, the old version).
    First, I need to turn all white areas to transparent. I have two imported images which have white square backgrounds behind their pictures / designs. I need to over-lap a design over another, but the white area / square behind the image is interferring with the other. How do I make all white to be transparent ?
    Second, when I remove / hide areas of an image with a white box it has a black outline. How do I remove this black outline?

    1. Better take Photoshop or any other comparable raster programme.
    2. You're probably talking about a black stroke. Read about strokes in the help files.

  • How Do I: Remove White Background From a Non-Standard Sized PDF?

    Hello. Been a little while since I was last here.
    My issue is pretty simple. I am creating a PDF in Acrobat Pro X from MS-Word 2007. My document is landscaped half-page sized (US), so dimensions are: 8.5" wide, 5.5" high.
    When I attempt to print to PDF, the dimensions come out correctly, but there is a white background which is the size of a landscaped 8.5" x 11" sheet. Against this background, the 8.5" x 5.5" area is situated (nearly) centered vertically, but "right-justified" horizontally (see image). I need to find out how to fix this.
    Here's what I know:
    In MS Word:
    For "Page Setup" (under Page Layout tab):
    - under Margins tab, orientation is landscape;
    - under Paper tab, "Paper size" is "Custom size", with Width 8.5", Height 5.5" ;
    - No changes under Layout tab.
    For "Preferences" (under Acrobat tab)
    - under Settings tab, "Conversion Settings" are a custom setting ("Advanced Settings"), with "Default Settings" of Width 8.5 inches and Height 5.5 inches.
    When I Print > Adobe PDF:
    For "Properties" in Print window:
    - Under Layout tab, "Orientation" is "Landscape" ;
    - Under Paper/Quality tab, "Paper Source" is custom with Width 8.5" and Height 5.5".
    - Under Adobe PDF Settings tab, "Default Settings" is "High Quality Print (Custom)" with (Custom) being the settings I set under Acrobat > Preferences.
    - Also under Adobe PDF Settings tab, "Adobe PDF Page Size" is custom with Width 8.5" and Height 5.5".
    The result is pictured above.
    The last thing I did before posting this was run Help > Repair Acrobat Installation in Adobe X. Any suggestions? You can't do worse than I have.

  • How to make UIPagecontrol of UIPageviewController transparent?

    I am using UIPageviewController in my application where i want to make UIPagecontrol of UIPageeviewController transparent.
    While giving background color to clear color its not working but when giving background color to any other color like red itsworking fine.

    With this image, it will be easiest to select the white background.
    1. I would recommend using the Quick Select Tool. Select the white background.
    2. Because you want the lung guy on his own layer not the white background, you need to invert the selection. Select<Inverse.
    3. Copy the lung guy onto his own layer. On PC, press ctrl + J. If on a Mac, the shortcut is cmd + J.
    4. You can now copy/paste lung guy in the desired photo. Alternately, you can drag his layer from the layers palette and drop him into the other document. (If the resolution of lung guy doesn't match your image's resolution, he will shrink or expand as his layer will take on the resolution of the document he is moved into.)
    Note: I would not use the lettering as you can see where the lung guy's image overlaps. It will be an easier project if you redo the lettering in Word or use the Photoshop Element's text tool...maybe with text warp and a layer add the text.
