I use photoshop every now and then but I’m certainly no expert so I can’t figure out something that should be quite simple to fix. I’m trying to design some logos for my work wiki and running into a little trouble with the background. When I post it on the wiki, the background surrounding the logo stays white. I would like to be able to isolate the logo itself. Here is the image with the white background ( how do I make it so there’s no background)
Well, you’re speaking of anti-aliasing, of course. This is done several ways, on edges, especially. Make sure, for the text tool you have “Sharp” selected from the drop-down menu. Also, on selections (elliptical and square) make sure you’ve ‘ticked’ the box that says "Anti Alias’. When using Photoshop shapes, it’s automatic (and when you rasterize them).
That aside, it’s pretty easy, hm? Most browsers, as I said earlier, handle PNG and it’s transparency just fine, now. IE6 doesn’t display them correctly, however. But Opera, Firefox and IE7 are fine, now. (Web designers around the world: Cheer!)
Oh! Now I realize that I’ve been a complete noob with this. You see, I did all the text and design in a simple paint program. Then I imported to photoshop because I needed to save the file for the web in order to be able to fit the size requiremnent on the wiki.
You’re saying I should start from scratch with photoshop. This is where the problem is.
I’ll give it a try.
