I designed a picture I want to use to print T-shirts and other stuff. It consists of a circle (like an official seal type thing) and it's on a square background. I can't figure out how to remove this background! I know I should get Photoshop, but can't afford it at the moment. All I have is Paint and some Microsoft Office picture manager software, and it doesn't appear I can remove or make a transparent background with these.

If you know of any programs on the internet or any other tips and tricks, I'd appreciate them! :thumbsup:

Hi shorty.
Gimp is a decent freeware app that you can use to create transparencies with.
There is a learning curve but tutorials are available on the site as well as around the net.

Did you ever manage to get your image into a 'circle, Shorty?
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.
