One of my (many) summer projects has been to fancy up the blog a bit and add some personalization to make it feel more like home. My most recent development in this project has been the addition of social media buttons. The process was relatively simple, but once I created and installed the new buttons, the white background of the images on top of my pink blog template looked tacky and drove me crazy. Fortunately, there was an easy fix to my problem. I just used the “Instant Alpha” feature of Preview on my Mac. As you can see, it make a huge difference!
To share this simple photo editing method with you, I made quick video tutorial. Please note that I used the Mac application of Preview to make these picture edits. If you are a PC user, this tutorial will not be helpful to you.
And there you have it – an easy way to remove the white background from images. I hope this tutorial was helpful to you. You can find my complete collection of video tutorials by clicking Techie Tutorials on the top menu.
How do you plan to use this photo editing technique in your classroom or blog? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
