I can get it transparaent but not with clean edges. Could some one tell me how to get the clean edges with PSP 15.
I use PSP9 but this may work with PSP15.
Open your JPEG pic. Go to the Main Menu, at the top of your screen and click Layers. Then go down and click Promote Background Layer.
Now go to your Selection Tools and click on Magic Wand. On the Tool Options Palette (press F4 if options not visable) set as -
Match Mode: RGB Value
Sample Merged: unchecked
Zoom in until you can see the area where the white background merges with the rest of the image. Maybe 200%. Now click the Magic Wand, on the white background, 2 or 3 pixels away from where the color starts.
Go back to the Main Menu, at the top of your screen, and click Edit and then Clear. Then Edit and Repeat Clear; Edit/Repeat Clear. Keep clearing until the white is gone. (took around 6 Repeat Clears on my test image)
Now just use Save As and change the format to PNG or PSP. It can't be saved as a JPEG.
