Hi, I am building a company logo with Photoshop CC. The main objective for my logo is so it blends in nicely in header of my website. As you can see at http://comparedeals.net my mobile phone website, I have had to shift the background color of the webpage to white as the logo is not transparent. How do I make the white background of the logo transparent?
I know how to remove the background by making that layer invisible but when I save the file as an image JPEG or PNG, the background is still white - which forces me to have a white background color for my website.
I know you can save with transparency but I can't remember how I did it last time I made a logo. Anyone know how?
save it as PNG , the other file format jpg Does not support transparency.
if you did that already, and did not work
Make sure that you did not merge the text with the backgeound , or it does not has any content behind.
if that did not work either , share a screenshot for your Layers
If you have used an Artboard to make your logo then you may have not noticed that in CC2015.5 you now have to set the background to transparent. This is different from earlier versions.
As Mohammad said you must use the .PNG file format for saving as that supports transparency whereas jpeg does not.
You can do it by removing the background completely and use the shortcut
(shift+ctrl+alt+s) which will take to you save for web window.Select png-24 for a high quality image from the dropdown and it should serve your purpose.
Thanks that worked for me!
A logo with a transparent background can be crucial to having professional level designs and ads. It gives you more options of where you can place your logo on Pinoy TV, and allows for a polished look for the end product. While Photoshop is a go to tool for this, there are many other ways it can be accomplished, if you are a designer or not!
Why didn't this work for me? It still has a white background.
