Corel Photo-PAINT Exercises
Removing an Image's Background

Creating a Transparent Background - Exercise file


Select the File menu / Open / acp_corel_paint_02_01.cpt


One of the most important things you need to understand when you work with Photo-PAINT is the concept of the background of an image, as well as objects in the image. Think of a background as your floor with a painting on it. Think of objects as floating paintings (bitmaps) that are stacked one on top of another. If you remove the background, it allows you to see below the image, and in essence, you have created transparency in your image. So when you come to think of it, a transparent background is an incorrect statement. A transparent background is actually no background at all.


1) Select the Window menu / Dockers / Objects


The Objects Docker shows that this image has two objects as well as the background. The text object, "ACP Cruising Club" is selected.


2) In the Objects Docker, click on the Background to select it.

3) Press the Delete key, or click Delete on the Objects Docker to remove the Background.


The checker board pattern denotes transparency.
