I scanned my art and uploaded it but when I use the paintbrush the color doesn't show up,is that because my scanner left blank black space?

Couldn't we just add an alpha channel, then go "Color to Alpha" and convert the white to transparency?
This could have been done as "step" 3, without the use of the "Select by Color" tool. Then save as a png image.

Also we can skip the "save by file type" option if we know what file type we're saving in. Just type ".png" (without quotation marks) at the end of the files name and press "Enter".

this helped :D but not in the way expected
The delete trick didn't work for me though. No matter how many times I pressed delete in different ways, the white wouldn't delete. :shrug:
I read the comments and I ended up going to Colors, and using the Color to Alpha setting. whatever alpha is. xD

lol that happens occassionally, but when it does, an easy way to erase the bg is to create a transparent layer, go back to the black and white image layer, use the select by color tool and click on the black lines of the drawing to select it. Go back to the transparent layer and with a black paintbrush, color in the lines of the selection. Erase the original picture and viola, youve got a transparent line art ;)

Nice tutorial. Though couldn't one also use "color to transparency" option to get rid of the background?

you could, but it's easier to explain it the way i did :XD:

Scayris Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2010   Digital Artist
Yeah, probably... Tell me tho, since I've never really done that, does it leave the edges smooth or just cut the pixels? It probably doesn't matter much here, but it could be useful for other stuff if it leaves the lineart smooth :3
Reply
:iconxadrea:
Xadrea Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
I've personally never used the color to transparent to create transparency, but it normally depends how high you set the threshold to cut out the bg. A lower threshold results in smoother looking lineart, but you have to make sure that there's no gray in there or else it'll look funny when time comes to color it =D
