  • Simple(?) alpha question

    Posted by Tom John on April 9, 2005 at 8:43 am

    Hi, all,

    I have a client logo as a (single-layer) white on black tiff. Can anyone tell me how to tell Photoshop to convert the black portion to transparent with an alpha so that I may add beveled edges to the logo?

    Many thanks!
