How to make a transparent background
I'm a "basic" user of Photoshop. I'm redesigning my business website and I found a few graphics that would be perfect for the header page. Problem is, they have white backgrounds. I've tried extracting the photo to clean up the white background, but it always leaves white around the edges of the graphic (& some graphics are intricate), not getting close enough to add the "cleaned-up" graphic to my colored header page.
Does anyone know a program out there that makes any background transparent so none of the white shows? Some graphics are just too tedious to do by hand in PhotoShop and they never come out right anyway.
The website builder I'm using only accepts JPEG or GIF files.
