I recently purchased https://as1.ftcdn.net/jpg/01/27/67/66/500_F_127676686_zP8wVsGawvEtpqXjGqcMWEnjrry86www.jpg and I cannot seem to be able to remove the checkered box from it to use the light effect only. I figured it would come in a file with multiple layers and I would just have to remove them, but I was wrong. I think this file is faulty.
thanks for the time,
The file works just fine.
Are you opening the file in Illustrator? The file is an .ai file which you need Illustrator to use. To get rid of the checkered background hide the bottom layer. Each of the different sparkle effects are on a different layer in the layers panel.
It still has a black outline around it!
I would request you to share the screenshot of the black outline you are referring to?
Please follow the steps below in order to avoid the black outline:
Let me know if this solves your query!
Feel free to update this thread in case of any additional query.
Just turn off the layers with the black outlines the same as you did with the background. They are on their own layers as well.
