Problem superimposing Magic Extractor image

Apr 23, 2013 5:28 PM

I used Magic Extractor to extract a person from a pic.  Then wanted to superimpose it on a landscale phot I had.  Trouble is the checkered part which should be transparent is solid white.  Tried saving as PNG, and PSD, didn't work.




Please help if you can, I've scoured the web and am really lost

    Saving as png or psd should work.


    Are there other layers or just the one with transparency?


    If you reopen the saved image in pse 6 does it not still have transparency intact or is it only when you open the file in another application/program that you lose the transparency?


    Can you post a screenshot showing the layers panel and the image in question?

    Also, don't flatten the image. Flattening removes transparency. If you need to merge layers, use the layer merge command instead.

    Try deleting the background layer after you've done the abstraction.


    For creating a PNG, try using Save for Web and choosing PNG-24.
