Making transparent image in Photoshop



First of all open Photoshop,

Then you have to open or create your desired image in the workspace.

Then on the right side click on the layers panel.

You will see a option called Opacity in the current highlighted layer and there is a scale next to the opacity. Change the opacity 100% to lower to see the effect in image. As the size of the opacity decreases , the image will become more transparent.

If you want to make 2 images transparent one over the another,

Open the desired images separately in two canvas.

Select the layer which you wants to make image transparent & select the opacity and decrease the scale.

Then you can see the image transparenting one over the another.

Finally you have to select Layer and then click Flatten image.

Creating a transparent image in Adobe Photoshop is pretty simple. Open Adobe Photoshop, click File, New then at the bottom of the dialog box under Contents select Transparent. Save it as a “.gif” file then you’re done. You now have a transparent image, although it’s a blank canvas but still it’s transparent. But if you have a photo and you only want a portion of it and the rest is transparent, then below are the steps on how you can do it.

  • Open Adobe Photoshop then open your image.
  • Select Magic Wand Tool then in your image, click the background you want to make transparent.
  • After that, right-click on the image then Select Inverse.
  • Create a new file with transparent background. Select File, New then at the bottom of the dialog box under Contents select Transparent then click OK.
  • Go back to your previous image. Click on top of its box to select it then select Move Tool. Click and drag your image to the blank canvas you just created.
  • Save the image as “.gif” and you’re done.

See the images below for your references. And take note, when saving an image with a transparent background, use “.gif” or “.png”. Don’t select “.jpg” because it will only turn the transparent background into white.
