    Default I FAIL at photoshop

    K seriously what am i doing wrong? All i wanted to do was make the white background in my new avatar clear but no matter what i do it won't go clear. I've done transparent gif's before so i dunno whats wrong.

    Can someone do me a big favour & remove the white background from this? You'd be doing me a big favour.

    You should see lil squares on Photoshop if something is transparent, don't know what you did wrong.
    I did it, but no need to upload a third...
    But this is how it should look if the background is transparent.

    When you're saving for web, be sure that you enable transparency. Otherwise it'll give you a white background by default.

    I would also suggest saving as .png as it offers higher quality transparencies. The only browser that doesn't like it is Internet Explorer and nobody uses that anyway.

    Here ya go

    In Phtshp that can be done without lassoing, u know. Tool called Magic Wand is perfect for selecting the plain backgrounds. For further adjustments like removing silhouette borders u can use tool Select>Modify>Border/expand/contract...

    Why don't you make the background the same colour as the forum's grey? it will "Appear" transparent.
