O.P. Huh?  How Do You Remove A Colour From Appearing?
Use the picture below as an example.

How could I remove the white background around it so that if I post it on a website (like now) it would just show the character?

well now he doesnt know for future references :p

anyway, if you're using PhotoShop or Paint Shop Pro you just have to make the background transparent, usually by using the "Background Eraser".

PhotoShop ->> i *think* you right click the eraser brush and there should be "back ground eraser", but im not totally sure

PaintShopPro ->> pretty much the same. (i havent played in PSP for awhile, so sorry if this is wrong) but theres sorta a drop down menu on each tool item and when you go to the Eraser tool's menu there should be "Background Eraser"
**tip: zoom in with a 1px brush to get everylast bit of the white**

sorry if thats totally wrong, but my point was to be, make the background transparent and save as a .gif, becuase i think with anything else it'll put the white background back...as ive learned from experience :sad:

Thank you to the members who made the background transparent for me and thank you pirateok for the information.

Unfortuneatly I don't have either of the programs that pirateok mentioied:(.

I'm stuck using the lame programs MS paint and Microsoft Picture It! Photo Premium 9.

Is it possible to do it on any of those?
