Hi all. I've been tasked to make a logo transparent but the logo itself has white in it. There are no borders and openings within the shapes of the logo. Is there a way to select which parts I want to make transparent?

 

Its in the shape of a bottle. My client wants to keep the white inside the bottle and the neck of the bottle. Everytime I use the magic wand tool it deletes all the white, even the white in the logo he wants to keep. Is this even possible with PS? It's a PNG file.

 

Thanks in advance for any help or recommendations.

Hi

Can post the image in question, sounds like a job for the Pen Tool but without seen the actual image it's hard to say

Hi,

I appreciate your help. I attached the file. The neck of the bottle beneath the blue bottle cap and the white inside the bottle including the part outside the blue star is what needs to stay white. He doesn't want any background image to show through these parts. For example, I made a flame background and everything was see-through.

Thanks again.

Did you select the entire bottle and put a white layer behind the bottle then add your background as the bottom layer?

As @Ged_Traynor said: Pen tool. You are luck, this is a very simple geometry.

You can use the pen tool to outline the bottle and use that as a mask for a full white solid colour background.

Or, second possibility: you paint the white solid colour background mask. You only need to be precise where the white comes in contact with the transparency at the bottom and at the neck.

 

However, the customer may have an EPS or Adobe Illustrator version of the bottle. That would be the most perfect solution, as you would be able to use that as is in Photoshop… (if and only if the logo has been done correctly!).
