Hi all,

I have a logo that logo but I want to completely remove the white from it so that only the orange remains. I tried selecting the colour range and deleting the white but this did not work. Could anyone help me with this? I have attached the logo.

Thanks,

D

Use the lasso tool, and set the selection color to white. Once you've selected all of the white areas, you can delete them.

This will only work if your PNG image was set up to have a transparent background. If not, then you can't simply "remove" the white because the image background is white. In this case, you'll need to select all of the orange instead, and then copy and paste it into a new image with a transparent background.

I'm pretty sure the original image would have been on a transparent background. How do I set the colour selection on the lasso tool ?

Thanks,

D

It's not technically "on" the lasso tool. But once you select that tool, click on the color selector that's at the bottom of all the tools on the left, and select that white color

Okay, so I have it selected and then I click the white colour but it still has all the image selected. How do I filter it so I can jsut delete the white?

When you select the lasso tool, at the top, there is a tolerance setting. the higher it is, the more colors will be selected. So, change it to something like 5, and it should only select the white color

Sorry, I can't find the tolerance level. I've searched the menus too but can't find it. I can see the tolerance setting when I select other tools. I'm using CS6 on Windows 7. Thanks for your help, D

I only got versions CS2 at hand right now but you can give this a try:

- open the image
- menu "select" -> item "color range"
- use the picker on a spot with white color in the image
- adjust the tolerance within that tool
