Photo V-Carve suggestion

Post by Phil »

Ive been playing with Photo V-Carve and I like it. One very helpful feature is the "Make color transparent" option. However, it can be difficult to clean up all of the unwanted details. An erase feature would be very useful to eliminate the last few annoying "strays" to make a cleaner image for processing.

Hi Phil,

A Top Tip that helps when editing images to remove the background is,

Save the edited image as a BMP or TIF file

Do not save as a JPG because this compression process introduces a variation
of colours at the boundaries, which then makes it difficult to turn the background
transparent.

Tony
