    I want to make this picture that is on the Macbook:

    http://img95.imageshack.us/my.php?image=picture1mq6.png

    How can I make the Japanese text blend in with the print? I want it to not be a white background but have only the text there ad behind it the picture.

    If the Japanese writing is being inserted as a font, that is to say you typed those Japanese characters into a text box rather than copying them from an image, then a freeware application such as PaintBrush available from the Apple downloads site allows for text to overlay an image.

    If the Japanese text is an image then you will need a graphics application with a lassoo or magic wand tool that will allow you to select only the black elements of the image (the text) and copy them without a background.

    Yes, use the magic wand tool to select the white space and hit delete. I recommend PixelMator or GraphicConverter to get this job done.
