    Question How do I make jpeg image background transparent?

    I have an jpeg of a coloured flower in a white background done in photoshop. I would like to bring this image into illustrator to incoroporate with my drawing.

    Is it possible to make the white background of the jpeg image to be transparent so that the drawing done in illustrator shows through the white background area only

    Any suggestions given would be very much appreciated!

    Thank you!

    This is the image I'm using. I want to have the white areas to be transparent when I bring into illustrator as this would be placed over my drawing. Any tips?

    Thanks for the links! but isn't the answer I'm looking for.

    I don't want to remove the background as there's nothing to remove.
    I want to know how to make the white background of the Rose invisible when it is placed in illustrator. Please look at the example attached.
    Anyone know how I could do that either with Photoshop or Illustrator?
    Thanks!

    Your background isn't transparent, so you have to remove the white background if you need this image with a transparent background in Adobe Illustrator. There are some different techniques to do that with Adobe Photoshop and you'll find some of the techniques in the tutorials above.

    Here is another tutorial called "How to Create a Transparent Background in Photoshop", but it's only one method to do this. There are still more tutorials about that.

    btw: JPG doesn't support transparency. Use .PSD, .PNG, .TIFF or .GIF instead.

    Have you tried .png which can hold the alpha channel transparency?
    Every day's a new day, "draw" on what you've learned.

    There are better ways >.>
    If your using PS(photoshop) than heres how.
    In your tool box there Is an eraser, If u right clikc It says "background eraser"
    This will let u click on the white and It will turn It transparent.
    If you have trouble with that, use the pen tool to outline the flower and copy and paste It onto a transparent doc.
    Try this out and let me know how It goes.
    Save as Png. Otherwise It dosent work, jpeg dosent do transparent =)

    Hi
    You can insert jpg picture without backgroud. You must:
    I. In Photoshop:
    1. Create path by "pen tool".
    2. Copy this path by "path selection tool".
    II. In Illustrator:
    1. Place jpg picture.
    2. Paste path by CTRL C (PC) or cmd C (Mac).
    3. Select picture and path by selection tool.
    4. Create clipping mask (cmd 7 or menu/object/clipping mask/make)
    5. In this way you will get jpg without background.
