[How to] Remove the "white" around an image

  • I have a small sprite, that has "white" around it (it is several different shades of bright white)I was wondering if there is a way inwhich, that white will go away or, if I have to go into PS(photoshop) and edit it myself.

    I thank anyone whom replies in advance, as I appreciate the help.

  • You load the image as a sprite, then zoom in with the sprite editor and edit the image 1 pixel at a time using the eraser tool to remove the 'white' and add transparency.

    A little time consuming but that's how I did it for the walking character in my maze.

  • Alright, I appreciate it, and I will give it a shot.

  • You can also try to use photoshop's or gimp's "magic stick". It's a tool that allows you to make selections by the color (or a variety colors and shades, depending on how you set it up). It always depends on the picture. If it has a very good contrast to the background, this tool might work quite nicely!!!

    For sprites where the magic wand tool is able to accurately select your sprite, this is a better option.

    Magic Wand selects sprite

    New layer via Cut

    Delete the lower layer

    And voila, you have just the sprite, everything else is transparent.

    Thanks for the correction. My GIMP is setup in German, and I couldn't come up with a better translation. Magic "Stick" sounds kinda weird, now that I'm reviewing it ;o)

    You can use the fill tool as well; just set the colors alpha to 0.

    I did not know you could create transparency with the fill tool. Thanks for the tip!
