HI-

I licensed the following image: #23941310  and would like to use it in InDesign on a colored background.  When I place it on the background, it has a white square around it.  I do not want the white square, I simply want the black image.  In the application, I have selected the image and clicked on 'Layers' and the image is a single layer, there is now 'background' layer to the image.  How can I remove the white square from the image?

Thank you!!

Danielle

Hi Danielle,

Thanks for reaching out to the Stock community.

I see you have downloaded a JPG file and the requirement you have cannot be achieved with this. JPG does not support transparency.  You need to find a PNG file.

However, I have shared the workaround below in order to achieve the desired result.

  • Trace the file in Illustrator CC and then go to file and select the export option.

  • Export the file as PNG as shown in the screenshot below:

  • Then go to Indesign and place the image in Indesign.

Hope this helps!

Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

Regards,

Twarita
