I want to remove the background from a crossed-out circle. I removed the background from the outside of the circle but not the inside. This looks like the inside is transparent, but it is not.
Hi Ged, Which forum should I have posted this question on? I am using Photoshop Elements 2023.
is this a photoshop question?
I am using Photoshop Elements 2023. I grabbed the supposedly transparent image off the web, but it is not trans.
I removed the outer background, but removing the checkered interior background is illusive. I didn't find anything on the web on how to remove the interior background. Thanks for your help.

You are correct. The area surrounding the circle is transparent, as denoted by the checkerboard pattern. The 2 segments inside are not transparent.
To fix this, do the following:
1.Open the image, duplicate the background layer, shut off its visibility and work on the background copy layer.
2. Activate the Magic wand tool. On the tool's option bar, set the tolerance to 32 and check "contiguous."
3. Left click on one inside segment, and hit delete on the keyboard. Press CTRL+D to get rid of the selection outline ("marching ants"
4. Repeat step #3 for the other segment.
5. For demonstration I have cleared one of the segments.
Thank you so much. People who know how to use Photoshop Elements make it look so easy. Thank you again, Tom
