1. You created a image like this.

2. You want to place it on your web page, but it's not nice because you have a background and don't like the white border around your image. You have to make the white color transparent.

3. To do this, select Tool/Color/Select Colors.... Then click with the mouse in the white area of your image.
Farben auswählen

4. Select Destination is Alpha and press OK.

5. Now you can save the image in GIF-Format. This won't work with JPEG-format, because JPEG can't save transparent information..
