      I want to make the background behind my signature clear so that when I use it there isn't a white box around it. Can someone tell me how to do that? I have PSE8

        I do this by using the magic extractor to extract from the white background and then sAve it as a png file

        "Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

        Oh, wow Maggi. Your knowledge of PSE has increased by leaps and bounds. I don't think I've ever used the magic extractor or the little wand thingy. I'm so impressed!!!

          Ok, I found the magic extractor but I can't find a way to exclue the background all at once. It looks like I have to use a pencil or eraser. That wont' work. It will be too hard to get in and around the letters. What am I missing?

            I tried it and was able to save your signature as a png and it looked fine but when I upload it as a png it converts to a jpg so it still has the white box. Where are the experts?? I have done this on my website successfully but can't seen to make this work. Sorry Lisa.

            Hmmm…I'm not sure how you want to use the siggie. But I think to use in forums and such you need code. I have used my http://www.mylivesignature.com/.

            You can just go to file – new blank file – then choose transparent for the background.
            You just type your text. Nothing to extract.

              You know Lisa, I figured that new blank file out this am but when I uploaded it it was a black file. So then I changed the text to white and I had white text with a black background. I was saving as a png and I used the transparent background. I don't know why it was that way…. Maybe something Picasa was doing?

                Testing

                Still too big. Must go back to the drawing board. Make sure you get your size right first.
