Most every thing I tube has a white background..
so its very easy to tube..
Drag and drop this arrow to keep up with where you are in
Below shows your magic wand selected, tolerance
set to 20, feather set to 2. At times depending on the graphic.. you
might have to 'tweak' the tolerance, setting it to a lower number...
Click any where on the white surrounding the
picture. Like I did below. IFFF your graphic is a background..you
HAVE to go to the layer palette and right click on the background
level and promote to layer.. then when the white area is selected
you hit delete or cut..
ALWAYS, ALWAYS ALWAYS check your new tube with a
3D shadow.. to check to see if there is any white area left.. if
there is UNDO the 3D shadow.. and go BACK and select the white areas
with your magic wand again and delete till all are gone.. Check with
shadow again.. DONT save a tube with a shadow on it.. only if you
want to make a preview of it.. to send to someone.. SAVE AS your new
tube in PSPIMAGE format.
In this sample below... you can see where some of
the white was missed the first go around.. you have to go back and
select the areas and delete/cut..
There are times where a graphic is really detailed
and your wanting to tube one aspect of it.. for instance in this
graphic below.. I'm wanting to take the kitty from off the floral
You click your Eraser Tool and choose the
background eraser... Right click on the flowers then left click and
drag around the cat.. USUALLY it will take the flowers off and not
the cat.. you have to be very careful though.. this takes time and
lots of practice to master this.. Some times you have to ZOOOM in
very close to an area.. to 'clean' up all the unwanted color around
the object your wanting to tube..
One last thing.. when you save your tube in
See below... Go to options and save it as a PSP 7
compatible tube.. that way PSP 7, 8 and 9 can view it and use it. if
you dont.. it will only save in PSP 9 format and only people with
PSP 9 can see it.. I believe that once you set this to PSP 7 it
stays that way unless you have to reinstall PSP or reset all the
Hope this has helped in your tubbing..
