Transparencies are basically transparent sheets with graphics and text on them and are frequently used for educational presentations. One interesting way to create them is by essentially taking an image and removing its background – so that you can then print it onto a transparent sheet.
If you want to pull that off however you’ll need to be able to edit your images and remove the background to make it transparent. The good news is that using Movavi Photo Editor it is easy to learn how to change photo background, and won’t take you that long at all.
When you want to get started, launch Movavi Photo Editor and click on the ‘Browse for Images’ button and select the image you want to use in your transparency. After that’s done open the ‘Change Background’ tab so that the sidebar with the tools you need appears.
In the sidebar you should first use the ‘Foreground Brush’ and the ‘Background Brush’ to mark the foreground areas that you want to keep and the background areas that you’d like to remove respectively. At this stage you don’t need to be too precise, as Movavi Photo Editor will let you refine the selection after you click on the ‘Next Step’ button.
Using the ‘Mask Brushes’ will let you paint the borders of the selection to add or subtract areas and ensure only the parts that you want are selected. To select finer details, Movavi Photo Editor has a ‘Hair Selection’ tool that you can use as well.
If and when you’re satisfied that the selection is as precise as possible you can click ‘Next Step’ again and this time Movavi Photo Editor will remove the background. By default the background will be transparent and if you intend to create an educational transparency you should leave it that way – or you could click ‘Add Image’ to replace it with a new image.
In either case all that remains is to click ‘Apply’ then click ‘Save’ to save the image. If you left your background transparent you should save it as a PNG or GIF as both support transparent backgrounds.
Before you exit Movavi Photo Editor, try using some of its other features. In particular you may want to use it to add customizable titles, apply artistic filters, enhance the quality of images, transform the frame, or remove unwanted objects.
Considering how easy it is to remove the background from an image using Movavi Photo Editor, you should be able to create educational transparencies without any difficulty. In fact you could do much more than that, and come up with a wide range of educational materials by being able to edit photos or other images with its help.
