In this post, I’m going to show you how to remove the white space from a logo and place it onto an image.
1. Drag Logo onto Image
The first thing to do is open up your logo and the image that you’d like to place the logo on.
Click on your logo using the ‘Move’ tool and drag it over to the tab of the image and let go anywhere on your image. It will copy the logo into the file and create a new layer. Rename that layer to say ‘Logo’.
Option 1 – Change Blending Mode
Ok, here’s the easiest way.
Simply click on your layer, and change the blending mode from ‘Normal‘ to ‘Multiply‘. This will turn all the white pixels to transparent for that layer.
Super easy to do, right? Well yes, but really just if your logo is black and white. If you have color in your logo and change the blending mode to multiply, you’ll see something like the image below. See how the white disappeared but the blue became semi-transparent? That’s not always desirable, especially if you want your logo to stand out. Let’s check out the other ways to do this.
Option 2 – Magic Wand Tool with Contiguous Checked
- Use the ‘Magic Wand‘ tool with ‘Contiguous‘ checked. Then click on the white space in your logo. It will only select the white pixels that are touching each other. So if there are any circles or any closed shapes, those won’t get selected.
- Now hit ‘Delete‘ on your keyboard.
- Repeat those steps as necessary to remove all the white space you need to from the logo.
Option 3 – Magic Wand Tool with Contiguous Unchecked
- Use the ‘Magic Wand‘ tool and make sure ‘Contiguous‘ is unchecked.
- Click any white space in your logo.
- Hit ‘Delete‘ on your keyboard
