I'm a fledgling gimp user. Can someone explain to me the process of
removing the background color from my logo? It has this nasty white box
around it, and looks horrible on colored paper/backgrounds. I have it
in .tif, .gif, and .jpg formats. I know I can't do it in .jpg. Any
help is greatly appreciated.
If your background is a plain colour, maybe your should simply try to
use "Color to alpha" (I think it should be in "Filters->Colors" in
2.2.x, I am using 2.3.x in which it is located in "Colors").
To save it, I would advise you to use PNG format. GIF cannot really do
transparency, and I do not know how well tiff handles it.
