superimposed jpg image comes with unwanted background

I cut out an object from a jpg image and made a new jpg image with transparent background. Tested it on image editing program - the background is indeed transparent.


However, when i try to superimpose the image with transparent background on a video in PrE, the image is shown with a white background.


How do i remove that unwanted white background?

    JPEG cannot contain Transparency. In your Image editing program, I would choose PNG. If your Image editor is Photoshop (either regular, or Elements), you can also Save_As PSD, which will work fine in Premiere.


    When one creates Transparency, but then chooses a Save_As, such as JPEG, the Image is flattened onto a white background.


    Good luck,

    Great news!


    In many Image editors, Transparency is not clearly deliniated, and it just looks white. With display settings in Photoshop, Transparency will be shown as a checkerboard pattern, but when one does a Save_As to JPEG, that clearly goes white, alerting the user to the lack of Transparency in the JPEG.


    Good luck, and happy editing.

    Yes, I am still interested, and thanks for posting that link. Just saw it, as I have been out of town for a bit.


    Really liked the "arrow hitting target" SFX that you used.


    Nice work!
