    Image help...

    Mods, since this is "sorta" Rams related, I wasn't sure where to post this. Please move if needed.

    Ordering a new zippo for my BDay. The attached image has a white background that I want to make transparent. I have tried to convert it using a couple different tools, but I have a really hard time around the small dates on the bottom left and right.

    Anyone willing to give it a try?

    I created this as a PNG file, with a one pixel white dot (low density and very soft) in each corner to preserve the size of the background. The white dots shouldn't be noticable.

    It could be that the application is filling in the null area with white. I saved it as a PSD file, with a background layer that matches your last image.

    The image uploader said invalid file type, so I uplaoded it here.

    Is that the actual -- or, very close -- color of the Zip?

    Um....I'm thinking this should be posted in the "smoking" section.

    LOL. Ferter beat me to it! But I was going to try the same solution as Gap.

    Thoey, I hope you don't smoke and want / need the lighter for Christmas candles, wood stove, etc.

    All the best amigo, even when you get to your own 75th Anniversary!
