Convert white to transparent by Zefhar Convert white to transparent by Zefhar
With this Action, you get rid of the white in your drawings. It extracts your black outlines and leaves them surrounded by pure transparent nothingness!!

CAUTION: This Action works only with FLATTENED images. RGB and Grayscale will do.

Recomendation: before playing the action on your lineart, clean it up with curves or levels, and erase any unwanted spots.

Have fun! ;)

:new: The downloadable file contains now a "README" file!! OMG! that means I'm actually providing you with instructions on how to instal and run this action on Photoshop! Yai!!

BTW I used it here: [link]

Hello, I downloaded this Action, not sure if, or how I might use them.
None the less, thank you for making them available. Should I use them in a project,
I will certainly credit you and also post the work that I used them in. Thanks again.
All the best,
Glenn

I had this drawing I started in Painter that I wanted to lift off of the "Canvas." I saved it as a PDF, used your "action." It worked perfectly.

I'd like to understand how each step in the process works for future reference.

Thank you for providing this.

Be Well

Thanks. I had been struggling all evening to do this task until I stumbled on to your action. It took a bit longer still to figure out why the transparency wasn't preserved when I saved as a GIF (I had to change modes to RGB from Grayscale.) Thank you again - I'm sure I'll be using this much.

YOU HAVE SAVED MY LIFE D:

I was looking for lineart to color that was transparent, because I couldn't color ones with a white background, but you really saved me. And, now I can do my lineart in sai, which I love for lineart, and color it in photoshop, which I love to color in.

You're so awesome, man CB
