t-shirt design

Postby smilesymh » September 17th, 2014, 12:26 pm

I am VERY new to Printworks. Trying to design a t-shirt design to print on transfer paper. It is a volleyball, need to only print the outline of the ball with the inner lines, kind of like carving a pumpkin, if that makes sense. Anyone able to help me take the clip art and blank out the background around and inside the ball???

You can try doing this yourself. If the image background is not complicated, the way described below will work.

Open the image in Preview.app and bring up the toolbar by choosing View > Show Edit Toolbar (Cmd-Shift-A). Along with regular selection tools, you need to have Lasso, Smart Lasso and Instant Alpha tools in the toolbar. If they aren't present, maybe your image is in the PDF format. In this case, choose File > Export to create a PNG file for editing.

To remove the background, select it in the image and hit the Delete key.
