    setting current images backgrounds to transparent?

    Hi All,

    Ok i have some images which i need to have transparent backgrouds because at the moment they stick out like sore thumbs as they have a white background and its placed on a brown webpage.

    i have tried the background eraser tool in photoshop but it leaves the image looking bitty as not all the white is removed, is there a way to get the tool to remove all colours except black?

    p.s the images have no layers so i can set the transparency of the layer to 0 as the image would go also

    any ideas
    cheers

    I think GIMP's Magic Wand tool would be enough.
