In Photoshop, just select the white background with magic wand , right click and layer via cut , go to layers' palet, select the cut layer and set its fill and opacity both 2 zero, merge layers, and you are done

I'm sorry if I wasn't clear, I'm trying to get rid of the overlay, I just want the text I don't think you can snip them because you get the "opaque shadow square", see the snip.

Is it possible to get "just the text"?


I do appreciate everyone's help with this.

It's been done. It looks like it has a white background in the preview although it doesn't.

Hi BFK , There is no "opaque shadow square " thing
The attachment is the proof . It is the largest font one, placed on a glossy background

Edit : let me have another chance.

Arc pal, as you can see from your sample (version on the bottom) you need to make the word (sevenforums.com) slightly transparent aswell (version on the top), otherwise you won't be able to see the text underneath the watermark

I didn't understood the actual purpose , and BFK told he needed the text only. Whatever it may be, I took my last chance, and as I am a gentleman, I should keep my word

Here's a good example, except I know that black on black won't work it's just the example; Is it possible to have "just the text" ( I don't really want the text transparent) I'm trying to get rid of the white square. "I just want the text" if it's not possible I still intend to rep everyone that has posted to help out so far.


Thank you all for trying!

Yes, BFK . It is obviously possible what do you want. But at that situation there would be 14 separate images (as the no. of characters is 14 there in that text), and you have to arrange all them in a line properly. Difficult to you , and difficult to us, as well. But why I dont get any shadow till ?Perhaps I am using the .png format.

The last set I used in the snips. I dont have any "opaque shadow square" till. Either it is due to different file formats we are using, or I dont know at all.

I am getting offline now. BFK, please dont take it otherwise if I have shown any anger on you. I till believe that it is perfect

EDIT : BFK, please try the .png formet insted of .jpg format. It may be solved
