How can I remove the background from my images?
Unless the image background is a part of your design, we always recommend removing it so that only the design element or elements are printed.
Adobe Photoshop is the most widely known program for image editing, including background removal. However, if you don’t have access to this program, there are also several alternative options available.

Consider hiring a graphic designer for a one-time job, on a platform like Fiverr.
Please note: Always ensure that the file is saved/exported in PNG format after editing, as this is the only format that supports a transparent background.
