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.
Adobe Photoshop Express (a free online image editor)
GIMP - a free, open-source image editing program, installation required (image removal tutorial here).
- Photopea - a free online image editor, an alternative to Adobe Photoshop (image removal tutorial here).
- Fotor - an online image editor (free trial available), an alternative to Adobe Photoshop.
Consider hiring a graphic designer for a one-time job, on a platform like Fiverr.
Always ensure that the file is saved/exported in PNG format after editing, as this is the only format that supports a transparent background.
