    You need to open it in Photoshop or GIMP and do some hand editing to erase the remaining artifacts.  That's the only way I know how to do it.

    I recreated the text & touched up the lips.

    If you posted a copy of the original file, perhaps we could give you some useful advice. Also, what software do you use for image editing?

    Hi jonathanduane2010m,

    I really think Photoshop or GIMP are overkill, especially if you are novice at this. I would use Paint.NET (free).

    Open the Sunkissed-Logo.jpg with Paint.NET and select the Magic Wand tool (on the left panel). Set the Tolerance in the top tool bar to about 40%. Hold down the Shift key and click with mouse pointer anywhere on the white background of the image. Press the Delete key and the background will change to a checker board trnasparency. Save As png or gif (for the Internet).Transparent backgroudThis is the result:Logo
