How transparent selection works
If you’re wondering how transparent selection removes the background, here’s a quick explanation.
The color selected in Color 2 in Paint will be removed when you enable transparent selection. PNG images have a transparent background, they will be added with a white background in Paint. It is deleted when you click on it, because color 2 is mainly white. If it is a different color, the transparent selection will not work. So click on the Color 2 box and then on the white color.
Now, if your image has a different background color, select it in Color 2. To do this, click on the Color Picker icon in the toolbar. Typically, you need to click the color of the image to select it as color 1. Since we need the color in the Color 2 area, right-click the color.
Then use the transparent selection option. This way you can delete any part of your image. The only thing to take into account is that the image must have a solid background.
Step 6: You can resize the transparent image, change its position and rotate it. Use the corners of the selection area to resize the image. Right click on the image and choose Rotation.
To change its position, keep your mouse pointer over the image. It will turn into a four-sided arrow. Drag it to the desired position.
Likewise, you can add multiple images on top of the same image in Paint.
Step 7: To save the image, go to File> Save As.
