    I have a white image logo in PNG, so background is transparent
    Im trying to put it on a new red colour BG but make the white logo image become transparent/hollow
    So what I need is a red colour BG and centre is like a cut out, hollow logo ( i need to see the checker board texture as my logo)..if that make sense..
    I need to do it in photoshop, anyone have idea how to do it?

    i have tried select color range and magic wand, but it doesn’t do a very good job deleting everything i don’t need.

    try changing the tolerance of the magic wand if its not grabbing enough of the colors (put it up!) if that doesn’t work the easiest thing is to put the magic wand on a low tolerance and select the background then right click and press select inverse. then, switch your magic wand tool to “subtract from selection” on the top right (its the brush with a minus sign) if you need to take out more things. you can select inverse that again and it should select all the blank space and u can color it red.
