    I need a transparent hand print (different colors also) for a project. I've gotten a hand print and used a guide to try and make it transparent using Gimp but I can never export it.

    Can anyone help me? I'm sooo confused. I just need a simple program (I have Paintbrush, Gimp, etc) in order to make things transparent!

    I use GraphicConverter for these tasks
    A great program and one I highly recommend

    In the Graphic Converter tool palette there is a tool which lets you set a color transparent. The tool looks like a T with a wand in front of it. Double click to set which color should be transparent. Download it. It has very generous trial terms but it is worth buying.
