I suggested an item for March of Industry (If you want to see it it's called 'Anti-virus'. You should find it in the recent blueprint list on the site). There is the white background thing that was created with the image. How do I remove it while keeping only the weapon itself with the background transparent?

what image editing program are you using? Use GIMP and manually remove the white pixels with a rubber.

ok i see. ms paint is good for color, but it doesnt support transparency. i personally use ms paint then get rid of the white background with gimp.

paint.net works well too, if you can figure out the controls a little bit


Never forget the friends you've made, and the memories you've had.

Gimp actually has a feature that turns a certain color into transparency. Much faster and better than trying to erase to transparent.
