I have a graphic I want to super impose on a picture and I want the white space around and inside to be transparent.



Is it possible to convert my graphic? and how?



Thanks,

Bill

A quick way would be to select the white with the magic wand ( set to non contiguous ) and then delete

After you follow AMG's instructions you might want to go File>New and make a new file with a transparent background of the right size to hold your graphic. Then just drag the image with the background removed to the new file. It depends on whether you want a rectangular file with a transparent background or just the image with no background. You have to go Layer>Flatten image if you want to save it as a JPG or other file type that doesn't take layers.
