Pen tool - cutting image out

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by xxll_martin_llxx, Jun 14, 2012.

    For some reason when I save my circle image there seems to be a load of white outside the circle saved with it but I don't know why!?

    [​IMG]

    It saved as transparent.

    When I try to add it to my forum on a dark background I can see a horrible white outline on it.

    www.phoenixsupras.net

    I've tried cutting it out on the red of the circle using the pen tool, then adding a black outline to the circle via stroke but it still shows the white outline afterwards!

    I'm at a loose end as to why it won't cut out properly!

    Any help at all from anyone?!

    Many thanks

    I am not quite sure what you mean by white outline, as I see in your current image there is only black outline
    You can try to save it as .png file, because png will leave the transparent background as transparent

    ^^ There isn't a white outline here but when I put it as a gif on my forum with a black background it did.

    I saved it as a .png and it looks fine now.

    Thanks!

    PNG format will fix it.
