TOTD# 41: How I created transparent logo of GlassFish using Gimp ?
- Open up the
image in Gimp.
The original image has an embedded color profile and needs to be
converted to RGB. Opening the original image shows the following
Click on "Convert".
- Select "Tools", "Selection Tools", "Fuzzy Select" as shown:
and click anywhere on the white background. There are numerous types of
selection tools available but mostly the background needs to be made
- Select "Layer" menu item, "Transparency", "Add Alpha
Channel" as shown:
- Select "Edit" menu item, "Clear" to make the selection
- Finally save the image with default settings. Make sure to
give the extension as ".png", just specifying the file type as "PNG"
does not automatically provide the right extension. And the transparent
GlassFish image is href="http://blogs.sun.com/arungupta/resource/images/glassfish_logo_large_transparent.png">available
If "Add Alpha Channel" menu item is disabled then proceed to the next step.
A complete set of GlassFish buttons (including these images) are available
- feel free to use them!
How do you intend to use them ? :)
