Removing the White Background from your Pics


I use Tripod Gif Works to edit the white background you see with either pictures, emoticons and others.

You can only use .gif images to use Gif Works editor. The link for Tripod can be found in the Sidebar of the Workshop.

So, here's how I do it.....

1. Click on File then select File Open...
Image

2. The next screen will offer 2 methods to upload your image.
Method #1 allows to upload the URL of you're image you are hosting with an image host like Photobucket or Image Shack.
Method #2 offers you to upload an image from your computer (this is the option I use)

3. You've uploaded your graphic from your computer and you will see you image, you will clearly see the white background I've used arrows to pinpoint the background for you.
Image

4. Goto Edit from the File Menu and select Add Transparency
Image

Another window should appear with your image, if it doesn't then a pop-up blocker may be working to stop the window from showing, allow pop-ups from the tripod or temperary allow pop-ups from the site. Once the window has loaded it will look like this...
Image

You will see a hand icon pointer when you move the mouse, click on a white bit of area. You're window will then close and you will see the main window again with your image 'without' the white background now.

Image

Right-Click on the image and select Save Picture As...

Is this tripod site still around? I sooo wanted to try this, but when I type in tripod.gifworks.com it says can't find the page or can't connect.
