As a beginner I thought Photoshop was overwhelming. I started with Paint.Net

Its a free photo editing program, same as Photoshop but without all the fancy plugins.

You can get it here...



Now lets begin with an easy one. Save this to your computer and work along with me...


[pic - click to view]



Here is a picture of the Grinch. Lets start with taking out a background. When you open PAINT.NET open the file of the Grinch. First things first, its best to know how to zoom in and out. This will be of great help later on.

To zoom in or out can be done one of two ways. The easiest if to hold down CTRL and press the - for zoom out or hold down CRTL and press + to zoom in. Now that you know how to zoom in and zoom out lets take out the blue background of the photo.


[pic - click to view]



In the far left side you will see a box of tools. The large red arrow is pointing to them. The smaller red arrow is pointing to a wand. Select that wand. With the wand selected, click on any area you want to erase. In this situation, the blue background.

If your tolerance up top is set to 50 it should look something like this. The wand tried its best to outline the area you wanted to delete.

Hit the DELETE button and it will delete everything that was highlighted.

It will now look like this...

This may look good but it isn't, I will get into why in a moment and how you how to fix it. But, before I go on I want to stop and quickly go over a little bit about TOLERANCE. I will pick up where we left off in a moment.

Real quick, when dealing with the wand Tolerance is important. Too much tolerance can make a photo look like this...


[pic - click to view]



In the picture you can see my tolerance is at 63. It is too high because you can see some of the Grinch is highlighted. We want to keep the Grinch so this will not be good. If you were to hit delete with some of the area you want to keep highlighted, it will look like this...


[pic - click to view]



You have to find a sweet spot.

However too little tolerance can have the opposite effect. Notice here the tolerance is set to 12...


[pic - click to view]



There is a lot of the blue background left over. The main thing to know is if you cannot make the wand take out the background perfectly (it is never perfect) you can manually erase some of the background with the eraser tool. It is the tool in the toolbox that looks like an eraser.


[pic - click to view]



The red arrow in the picture above is pointing at the eraser and the larger arrow is pointing to the brush size. In this particular situation you could use the eraser and take out the blue background manually.

The last thing I will say about tolerance is this. You never want it so high to where it is going to erase part of the section you want to keep. If you have to lower tolerance and go in and manually erase and clean it up so be it. Better to do it manually than have portions of the Grinch missing.


How do you make the GIF ones?

Are you sure it's a png? Regardless, open in photoshop and take out background again and save as completely new png file. Try that.

Same for me. It worked and was transparent for one but the rest have the white background. I made them and saved them as png files the same way.

This is my first attempt:

That is really odd why it is doing that. Here is some advice. On the last one I noticed your canvas is a little large. On the toolbar select the SQUARE tool and put your image in a square. Then crop the portion of the photo that is not in the square to make your canvas smaller. I talked about this on the bottom of page 1 or page 2.
