I don't know if there is already a topic about this... But I'll make it anyway because many new crunchylanders don't know how to!

This is just the cheap way... I don't own Photoshop myself, I just do my designs with "GIMP 2" and "Microsoft Paint". But hopefully this will work for everyone.

/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
-Step by step guide on how to make your Crunchyland designs transparent-

To begin, make sure you've completed drawing up your design.
and... Please note there are several ways to do this, and these are just a few of the ways.

/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
Step #1 ~Cleaning the design~
Got your image?

It might look like that. Notice the stray marks on the side. Clean those up with a white. It doesn't have to be white, but it would help to understand the other steps.
To help clean, with a bright color like lime green, fill in the bg of the picture so you know what to erase. Erase it in the same bright color, then fill it white again.

Note- Sometimes other images will require more cleaning depending on what you did, so this step may require more work-

Step #2 ~Downloading the free software~ *optional*
If you don't have Photoshop, you may need to download this cheap little Program called GiFFY. I cannot tell you how to do it with Photoshop because I've never used Photoshop! Don't worry, no viruses... It's just very old so it looks like Windows Classic. Works fine though; never been slow for me.

Well, go here for your download... http://www.brothersoft.com/giffy-16084.html.

/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\

Step #3 ~Making the design transparent~
Make sure you've got your white image...

...Like that above.
But since I've got white in my design, if I make the white transparent, my shirt will be see through in some parts! So [VERY IMPORTANT] make sure you color your background a color that is not used in your Crunchyland design! I'll color mine purple. Make sure that if your image has closed off areas that are still white, color them purple too (or whatever color you used). Like the spaces in the o's in rosebudpony. I colored those purple. MAKE SURE YOU SAVE YOUR IMAGE IN THE .bmp FORMAT!

Now, open up GiFFY (I don't own Photoshop so I don't know how it works. I can't tell you how to make the images trans. in it, sorry! )

Follow the images.

then select your image. make sure it is in the .bmp format.


Now you are done making it transparent! It should now look like this:


/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\

If you've got a better way to do it, please message me, also!

Thanks, and good luck making your designs!
