Change to transparent background... Change to transparent background... XeroLui (TechnicalUser) (OP) 5 Aug 03 22:15 Hi all,I have a image (GIF) with a white background, can I change the background to transparent?Thanks a lot. RE: Change to transparent background... Harisma (TechnicalUser) 6 Aug 03 01:47 Suppose your gif_1 has the following dimensions 100x100Open PI.Create a new file 100 x 100 px. with a transparent background.Copy gif_1 and paste on the new file (later we will name it gif_2).Choose "magic eraser" and erase the background with one link.Save the file as gif_2. Best regards,Harisma,Ukraine RE: Change to transparent background... barbi1258 (TechnicalUser) 3 Nov 03 09:25 I think maybe he's having the same problem I'm having. Let's say I open a picture on file (gif1), I use the Standard Selection Pick (Circle) to cut the face off the photo, drag it to the side and it becomes a new image (gif2). The background of gif2 is totally white.I then open a new image (gif3)(transparent), copy gif2 to it, and the background looks transparent. HOWEVER, if I add sparkles to the image, and I right click and "Merge All" -- the background DOES NOT remain transparent, it converts back to white.HELP!! What step am I missing?

RetouchBuff (TechnicalUser) 5 Jan 04 01:21 If the output is I am assuming a .gif and before you merge you are seeing transparency, I tried the same thing, but I saved it showing the transparency as a .gif. I then opened it in Gif Animator and it really is tranparent. When you save as a .gif, PI will merge all the layers for you. If you merge yourself, yes, you will end up with a white background again. Don't merge, just save it as a .gif. It is fine. PI is object based and not really layer based. And in many image editors the background layer does not act in all ways like a regular layer. It doesn't here either.
