I need to remove a set of floor plans that are on a white background. What is the best tool for this kind of thing? The floor plans are a lighter color but with darklines all around.

 

Thanks

@Rchjr, can you show us the floor plans? It's going to depend on the image you're starting with. Do you want to remove the white and only leave the dark lines on a transparent background?

Yes, here it is. I also when it is done need for it to be on a transparent back ground. After that it needs to go on something that has a litlle bit of a gradient background with opacity set really low. Can you hnelp with that as well? Thanks

Okay, it's not going to be simple, which I'm sure you know already. I don't think you are going to be able to get the colored rooms completely transparent without a lot of work. The small type is not going to look good when you try to remove the background colors quickly. There are a few techniques you can experiment with. Do a general search for tutorial videos on how to remove the background from drawings in Photoshop and you'll get some ideas.

 

You'd still need to isolate each room background color in order to use the Select > Color Range tool to get a sample. Be sure to convert layers to smart objects for non-destructive editing. Unless this is a mission-critical project, I think you should take the easy route and remove the majority white, then add a Gradient layer to your liking. Or, recreate the floor plan in another program without the colors. Others may have more advice for you and best of luck with the project.

This is a PNG file with transparency.  You need to click on the image to expand it, and then right click and 'save'.  Copy and pasting doesn't work with PNG images.  You can add the gradient if you need something different to what JEL has provided, or just ask and be as specific as you can about what you need.
